Maintenance Strategy Review (MSR) Methods
Definition, Methods, Preparation, and Discussion
A Maintenance Strategy Review (MSR) is a fundamental component in Asset Efficiency Optimization (AEO). This article provides an overview of its place within the AEO process. A variety of MSR methods are available to guide the user in selecting the appropriate maintenance tasks that will ensure that the maintenance process is, and remains, aligned to the business goals. Each of these tools has requirements in terms of facilitation, resources, and data that are essential to the accuracy and validity of the outcome. A simple preparatory process is also described which helps set the scene for a formal MSR whilst at the same time offering opportunity to reap early gains from basic improvements in maintenance practices.
