Run a maintenance audit to assess the company maintenance dept.

Where efficiency and productivity are paramount, a maintenance audit plays a pivotal role in ensuring operational excellence. 

This process, which involves a thorough examination of maintenance practices and procedures, is critical for companies looking to optimize their performance and minimize downtime.

By conducting a maintenance audit, organizations can identify areas of improvement, streamline their processes, and ensure compliance with industry standards. Moreover, the utilization of maintenance audits helps companies maintain a safe working environment, reduce the risk of costly equipment failures, and ultimately, safeguard their reputation in the market.


The main goal of this module is to run a maintenance audit at your whole plant or parts of it. Beside this first important goal your collaborators will learn to:

  • Grasp the fundamentals underpinning operational performance through optimized maintenance.
  • Master measuring maintenance service performance.
  • Learn to structure your own benchmarking program.
  • Identify and assess risks.
  • Learn how to set improvement goals from a maintenance audit report.
  • Learn how to set-up an action plan after a maintenance audit report.
  • Apply the learnings from the maintenance audit report, either through a work group or with the help of an expert.
Maintenance Audit

What is this training about

A maintenance audit is a comprehensive examination of the foundational parameters of a function executing a process within a specific area of interest. By conducting a maintenance audit, we assess all critical parameters of the function against a benchmark derived from best practices employed by top-tier companies.

In the context of this module's maintenance audit, the benchmarks are based on the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) philosophy. The specific areas of focus for this audit include:

  1. Basic requirements of the TPM
  2. Status of TPM promotion
  3. Focused Improvement
  4. Autonomous Maintenance
  5. Planned Maintenance
  6. Quality Maintenance
  7. Education and Training
  8. Safety, Health, and Environment
  9. Early Management
  10. Improvement of Administrative and Indirect Departments

This module allows for the flexibility to conduct the audit on all 10 pillars or a subset of them, based on the specific needs and priorities of the organization.

Why your company have to do this training

To enhance your plant's performance, it is essential to optimize maintenance in the following three critical areas:

  1. Plant Equipment Standard Conditions
  2. Maintenance Organization
  3. Maintenance Team Competencies

Without measuring your plant's status in these areas, it's impossible to make improvements. A maintenance audit serves as a powerful tool to assess your maintenance capabilities and status, enabling you to identify areas for improvement and implement effective strategies to boost your plant's performance.

What your collaborators will be able to do after this training

Following this maintenance audit, you will gain a clear understanding of the specific improvements your company must undertake to advance to the next level.

The comprehensive report we provide will outline a detailed action plan, enabling you to effectively guide your maintenance team's efforts.

Additionally, this maintenance audit serves as a valuable opportunity to learn or reinforce your knowledge about the TPM, ensuring your organization is well-equipped to implement best practices and achieve operational excellence.
