Maintenance is, or should be, a crucial element of any line operator’s work. Making liberal use of concrete examples, this video explains the operator’s role in a scheme of preventive and corrective maintenance designed to smooth the flow of production.
 Preventive Maintenance for Operators
The most effective way to deal with equipment problems is to prevent them from ever occurring in the first place. This can best be done by the operators who handle the machinery daily. Volume 1 gives a concrete introduction to the basic points to keep in mind and the skills needed for preventive maintenance.
* What is the operator’s role in a maintenance scheme?
* Basic skills and procedures (cleaning, checking, oiling, tightening)
 Applied Preventive Maintenance
Pumps and motors are the most basic equipment on any factory floor. Every operator should know the structure and features of pumps and motors, and ensure that they are kept clean to maintain normal functioning at all times. Volume 2 explains the different types of motors and pumps, and their structures. It also goes through the method in order to pinpoint defects and disorders through cleaning.

* Key points in motor/pump inspection and cleaning
 Corrective Maintenance
Corrective maintenance involves not merely dealing with breakdowns when they occur, but making improvements in the equipment so that the same trouble will not he repeated. One way to do this is to make adjustments to the equipment that makes cleaning and daily inspection easy to do. Volume 3 examines case studies of motor and pump problems, and shows how to implement corrective maintenance techniques.
