Do you have the information you need to understand mobile mining equipment maintenance?
This eBook explains the fundamentals of mobile mining equipment maintenance. It is intended as a reference for mining professionals who are engaged in the maintenance process, whether they are designing programs or delivering them. The scope is confined to large surface mining vehicles: haul trucks, shovels, rotary drills, and support equipment.
The guide is organized into five sections:
Discusses the skills, organization and productivity factors necessary to deliver effective maintenance.
Defines the strategic, planning and scheduling, execution, and measurement attributes inherent to maintenance of large mobile equipment.
Explains the technical environment present at most mines and discusses the key systems that affect mobile maintenance.
Outlines the operating objectives and functional requirements for successful maintenance infrastructure
Describes the details of each type of contract, risks and mitigation strategies, and why certain contract types may be appropriate under specific circumstances where suppliers play a critical role in supporting mobile equipment maintenance.
These issues are fundamental to the design or improvement of maintenance operations; the underlying ideas have been developed and tested at sites globally since 1982.
