In 2010 I flew 232,000 miles and circumvented the world several times to support clients achieve their reliability goals. So far in 2011 I’ve worked in North Dakota, Florida, Oregon, Texas, Louisiana, Korea, Malaysia, and Scotland. My point is not to promote my busy travel schedule but to shed light on some commonalities of mainte
nance, no matter the country or industry.
I admit there are nuances that make certain operating environments different and sometimes unique, however I have listed some key maintenance activities that are required for any operation to become world-class. This by no means is an exhuastive list, just some key activities.
