Abstract

The strategy of maintenance management of the equipment of a plant is very useful for the effectiveness of manufacturing system processes. This study has been carried out in manufacturing SMEs (small-medium enterprises) of Punjab to assess the performance of maintenance management strategies and practices. Questionnaire approach followed by quantitative analysis has been employed to ascertain the importance level of different TPM strategies and practices involved maintenance management approach. Result indicated that manufacturing organizations are highly focused on breakdown maintenance for carrying out maintenance management activities.
