May 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Recent advancements in information systems and computer technology have led to developments in equipment and robotic technology that have permanently changed the characteristics of manufacturing equipment. Equipment Management in the Post-Maintenance Era: A New Alternative to Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) introduces a new way of thinking to help high-tech organizations manage an increasingly complex equipment base. It also facilitates the fundamental understanding of equipment management those in traditional industries will need to prepare for the emerging microchip era in equipment.

Kern Peng shares insights gained through decades of managing equipment performance. Using a systems model to analyze equipment management, he introduces alternatives in equipment management that are currently gaining momentum in high-tech industries. The book highlights the fundamental internal flaw in maintenance organizational setup, presents new approaches to replace maintenance functional setup, and illustrates a time-tested transformation and implementation process to help transition your organization from the maintenance era to the new post-maintenance era.

   Breaks down the history of equipment into five phases
   Provides a clear understanding of equipment management fundamentals
   Introduces alternatives in equipment management beyond the mainstream principles of maintenance management

The book examines maintenance management logistics, including planning and budgeting, training and people development, customer services and management, vendor management, and inventory management. Supplying a comprehensive look at the history of equipment management, it analyzes current maintenance practice and details approaches that can significantly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of your equipment management well into the future.

Praise for Equipment Management in the Post-Maintenance Era: A New Alternative to Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

If you are at all responsible for equipment management, especially in high tech, you need to read this book. And give it to your boss. Dr. Peng has illustrated in great detail why equipment maintenance should no longer be considered a standalone function but rather a strategic competitive opportunity that impacts all facets of the organization.
Kurt A. Beiter, PhD., Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University

This book points out, in substantial clarity, that while numerous concepts have been adopted and applied over the years (such as TPM, Predictive Maintenance, etc.) they fall short of meeting the significant challenges of the future–especially in the world of hi-tech, complex equipment … an absolutely superb account of the history of equipment maintenance and the progression of new advances that have taken place over the past few decades.
