Condition-based maintenance effectiveness from material efficiency perspective
Keywords: Condition-based maintenance, Material efficiency, Manufacturing
AbstractThis paper addresses the controversial gap between the environmental perspective and the cost perspective in a manufacturing context. The results of an empirical study on the heat treatment and phosphating processes performed by a manufacturing company indicate that implementing condition-based maintenance contributes not only to cost savings by preventing production losses and reducing equipment downtime but also to a more efficient use of resources by avoiding the generation of scraps and material wastage.
