Why PRIDE-in-Maintenance


PRIDE-in-Maintenance is our Domain Name

The name has two primary meanings; both are very important to us:

1. First, it is about sincere pride in the profession of maintenance and reliability. It is having a true understanding about the importance of maintenance. It is the crafts workforce performing quality work they are proud of and maintenance leaders managing maintenance as if it were their own personal business. Three levels of leaders must gain PRIDE-in-Maintenance:

All three levels must focus upon Total Operations Success!

2. Secondly, and most important, PRIDE-in-Maintenance is about -

If you are a Top Leader reading this my goal is for you to truly understand the importance of maintenance. Listen to the Maintenance Leader that brings facts about the high costs of gambling with maintenance. If you are a Maintenance Leader go beyond just managing the "status quo" and truly lead forward to reliability and maintenance excellence. I see Craft Leaders being everywhere; a site's only real expert in a trade, a lead person for a shift or a crew, a foreman or supervisor. True Craft Leaders must lead from the trenches and at the customer's level.

We will talk repetitively about the positive attitudes, the foundation philosophies and the proactive practices you must have for both Profit-Centered Maintenance (PCM) and Customer-Centered Maintenance (CCM). And you must understand the important synergistic multiplying effect a PCM and CCM attitude can have. Your impact to the bottom-line as a leader, manager or crafts person is mission-critical. Your work goes beyond that and is mission-essential, a core requirement for total operations success.

This site and our services are to help you maximize the value of your current maintenance operation. We provide very practical and proven services and best practice tools for supporting either profit or customer service in your organization. There are many free tools on this site for you to start with right now and "Just Do It" as Nike says in their commercials.

We want this site to help you today on that journey toward your definition of maintenance excellence. We have helped over 5,000 organizations in well over 70 countries around the world. So as you choose then so let it be that you read it all, use what you agree with to keep the commitment and courage (you got to be brave to be in maintenance) and then go ahead and Just Do It!

Many experiences from the maintenance trenches are shared on this site. You will find a complete step-by-step strategy that we have developed and use at The Maintenance Excellence Institute International. Of all the many steps toward maintenance excellence you must take, these two are the most important:

  1. Develop PRIDE-in-Maintenance within yourself and those around you!
  2. Clearly define your 'line in the sand' as to 'where we are now....rignt now!'

And Remember that Maintenance is Forever and you will always need -
