Abstract
Modern technologies are characterized by high level of automation deploying complex and sophisticated machines. The objective behind is to achieve higher productivity and profit in an organization. Therefore it is always desirable to achieve maximum calculated output from every equipment & machine in industry. Reduction in downtime (maintenance time of the machine) is a step towards getting a maximum output from machines. In the present research work a systematic approach for Maintenance Planning & Control (SIX STEP METHOD) has been applied on one of the critical unit, “Production Shop” of Ambika Forgings Jalandhar as a case study. Down time or maintenance time has been reduced by analyzing the failure pattern of critical parts of all types of machines/ equipments. The study suggested that with proposed maintenance plan, downtime of Production shop can be reduced by 13.64% and monetary benefit to the company due to new maintenance policy is of the order of Rs.18, 11,389/- for one time maintenance in total life span of equipment.
