Preventive Maintenance Optimization (PMO)- All Things Considered?
Paul Durko, CMRP, CMRT | Manager, Enterprise Reliability and Maintainability
Consolidated Nuclear Security (CNS) at Y-12
Conventionally, a standard definition for preventive maintenance optimization (PMO) is a structured process utilized to evaluate existing proactive maintenance strategies. In most cases, much of the conversation regarding any PMO effort is the reduction of obsolete tasks and cost inefficiencies. While these outcomes cannot be understated, there is much more to consider when undertaking a PMO project – including, and most importantly, sustainability. The purpose of this presentation is to provide insights required to make the efforts of the PMO process not only quantifiable, but sustainable, meaning the ability to reap continuous efficiency gains by rendering the process dynamic and understanding the program must be categorized as a living program.
