The proposed solution consists of a report card for each critical machine, which includes a machine diagram, the frequency of breakdowns, a root cause analysis, a list of critical spares and a planned maintenance schedule. The proposed solution is a starting point upon which a comprehensive preventative maintenance program will be developed.
