Maintenance Audits – Identifying Key Components of Maintenance and Repair Procedures

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 maintenance and repair procedures during the review process:

Maintenance and Repair Procedures

  1. Are a plan and schedule currently in place for the regular maintenance of all equipment?
  2. What is the breakdown between in-house and outsourced services for maintenance and repair work?
  3. How much maintenance and repair work is currently handled in the field, instead of in a repair facility?
  4. Is there a program in place for the regular testing of transformers and other equipment?
  5. How does the organization handle field decommissioning?
  6. What kind of lead time is needed for repairs?
  7. Are parts currently warehoused, or is the utility using a “just-in-time” inventory model?
