Plant Management Agreement
By : Nicole -
This incident weighed on the relationship between the company and the contractor, and similar incidents occurred. The terms of the agreement prevented the contractor from carrying out maintenance work on equipment necessary to reduce energy, chemical and other operating costs. 2) Each plant in the company had different ownership origins and had developed its own standards, including how “maintenance costs” and “maintenance times” were defined. In one plant, components that were in contact with the product and performing a processing function (e.g.B. filters and tabs) were billed to the operating budget, while these components were allocated to the maintenance budget at another plant. Indeed, in some factories, different definitions have been used in different departments. One question that can be asked is: “Is maintenance part of our “core business”? Let`s look at some examples. If the business is a hospital where the turnover is generated by the sale of medical services and where the maintenance consists of certain specialized activities. B, such as janitorial, maintenance of the H-V system and repair of advanced medical diagnostic and surveillance systems, the allocation of these activities is certainly the best approach. However, if your business is an old process industry, where most maintenance work includes inspections and repairs of production machinery, maintenance and operation as a team are just as important to the “core business” of product manufacturing, and maintenance should probably be performed by trained employees. It goes without saying that any agreement must include standards of safety, environment and quality of work, in addition to the principles set out in this article, which must be respected by both the company and the contractor. Similarly, “maintenance downtime” has never been sufficiently defined and varies greatly from facility to facility. In the past, downtime had been allocated either on the basis of operation or maintenance, based on the person responsible for the failure, a practice that will test even the most powerful maintenance/operation partnership.
