Maintenance Audits – Identifying Key Components of Equipment

What is a Maintenance Audit?

A maintenance audit is a comprehensive review of an organization’s equipment inventory, maintenance and repair processes, in-house facilities, and procurement procedures.

A qualified firm performing a maintenance audit will consider the following issues of equipment during the review process:

Equipment

  1. What equipment in the utility’s inventory is known to have regular maintenance or reliability issues?
  2. What equipment is nearing the end of its expected life?
  3. Could the inventory be streamlined with the removal of surplus or otherwise unneeded equipment?
  4. Are there opportunities to extend the life of some components with modifications or retrofits?
  5. Could the addition or more effective use of accessories (IFDs, wildlife protection, secondary arresters, etc.) enhance system performance or safety?
