Abstract

To provide an adequate return on the capital invested in it, thereby allowing further investment, a process must run at or above its planned production rate and at or below planned cost. The objective of maintenance is conservation of the equipment to help achieve this. Looking at rotating machinery as a class, its effect on process output and operating costs is associated with availability, energy consumption, and the cost of maintenance.
