MAINTENANCE AUDITS – IDENTIFYING KEY COMPONENTS OF PROCUREMENT

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 procurement during the review process:

PROCUREMENT

  1. How many suppliers is the organization currently using for new or refurbished equipment and replacement parts?
  2. Is the number of suppliers or their distance from the utility having a negative impact on the efficiency of the organization’s maintenance and repair activities?
  3. Are there opportunities to achieve greater efficiency by consolidating parts suppliers or service providers, or by utilizing suppliers with more available inventory and shorter lead times?
  4. Could existing warranty benefits, including warranty service, be better utilized?
