    This PowerPoint Course combines my 44-year consulting experiences with 11 textbooks and numerous published trade journal articles. While retirement ended active consulting, this Course was developed to help reinforce a maintenance dedication to providing reliable production equipment. <o:p></o:p>

              The Course is designed to be presented on-site by your personnel.  Successful presentation will require a comprehensive review of each lesson, its accompanying slides and recommended instructor dialog. <o:p></o:p>

              The Course focus is on what people must do to perform maintenance effectively. Maintenance, by itself, is a service-provider. Its success requires the joint efforts of all mining departments like: Material support and, cooperation from operations. <o:p></o:p>

              Maintenance must guide this multi-department support by prescribing how their services are requested, identified, classified, planned, scheduled, assigned, controlled, measured and long-term achievement assessed. Concurrently, the program will apply strategies, along with applicable techniques to achieve effective conduct of maintenance services. <o:p></o:p>

              But aside from guiding the conduct of internal maintenance actions, a critical aspect of the maintenance program is confirmation of how other mining departments must support and cooperate with maintenance.   <o:p></o:p>

              The concurrent, essential role of mine and plant managers is to provide the objectives, policies, and reinforcement of the maintenance program contribution to the total operation effort.<o:p></o:p>

               An essential Course intent is to help enable these managers to align all department operating programs with the operations production strategy, creating a mutual-support environment among all departments. Management involvement and direction is essential. <o:p></o:p>

              The Course has potential to help guide management application of improvement actions benefitting maintenance and the total operation.<o:p></o:p>
