Planning for Maintenance Work

  • Kiran R. Golwalkar


Detailed coordination of different technicians working on the same plant needs to be worked out. Shutdown for overhauling the plant can be advanced or postponed as per certain conditions. Assistance from external agency/contractors may have to be taken depending on type of work involved. Controversies may arise during this.

Generally, considerable advance planning is necessary for carrying out jobs during a plant shutdown. Many spares have to be procured, extra manpower is to be arranged, some outside parties are to be engaged, and certain heavy-duty machines are to be hired (on a per hour basis or a lump sum basis –which are at high rates usually).
