Amit Kumar Jain. "Influence of Modification of Design out Maintenance & Design Out Information System For Maintenance Cost Control & A Lucrative Business (With Case Study)". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(1):1-9 Jan 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group


Maintenance management is one of the main focuses in industrial sector. Maintenance in production environments is becoming increasingly complex as machines become more technologically advanced, therefore higher product quality, increased reliability, enhanced availability of plants, optimization of cost and choosing right main tenance policy plays a vital role in achieving a lucrative business. Generally the production and maintenance task goes together, nearly 43% of production cost generally goes to the maintenance task, and hence there is a possibility to reduce the maintenan ce cost. Thus in this paper an attempt is made to understand most important maintenance policy i.e. Design Out Maintenance (DOM) . Where most of the maintenance concepts aim to minimize number of failure or effects of failures, Design out Maintenance aims “ to eliminate the cause of maintenance ”. We apply the concept of redesign to all types of potential failures that causes problems in business performance. The paper also through light on the Design out Information System. Therefore it should result in a more economical production function and a more efficient maintenance function.
