Maintenance is connected to the different systems, Products & Materials. This includes retaining or restoring the equipment or product which can perform its required/designed function ability.
Maintenance is a common word for us, But many of them are not aware of the actual needs & requirements of this term, Especially in Boats, On-time Maintenance having a major role for ensuring the successful voyage of boats, Unfortunately, most of the owners are compromising the maintenance activities because of tight schedule & increased short time cost. The fact is, on-time maintenance or service will increase efficiency and the life span of specific equipment or system, the end result cost reduction & safety
The concept refers to the set of activities, tests, procedures, and inspections that are used to predict or prevent the breakdown failure of systems including equipment, machines, or material in the future. The entire process is to resolve the root causes of the failure, and dealing with those issues before a failure occurs.
Benefits of Proactive maintenance
- Reduced Break down:
Break down usually occurs when equipment or system failed to meet the designed activities, By proactive maintenance, we can find the root cause of the problem before it fails, So the downtime can be avoided with the implementation of proactive maintenance.
- Minimum Repair Cost
Spares or parts cost would be less compared to entire equipment because of the early stage findings and troubleshooting of the failures in systems. Especially technical team manpower can be limit to a minimum because of the fixed workflow throughout the month.
- Increased Life Span of the Machinery / Equipment
Purchasing of Marine Equipment required a large amount of investment, So equipment life span having a major role in cost control. A proactive approach to maintenance also keeps marine systems & equipment capable to run continuously at maximum efficiency and opposing to reduced efficiency for a maximum period of the span.
- Reduced Overall Cost:
Some of the firms are hesitating to implement proactive maintenance method because of the increased cost for short time, But while considering log term cost graph, the total cost will be less compared to the reactive maintenance, especially labor cost in proactive concept is almost in a horizontal line, means the requirement of emergency repair reduced and manpower can use effectively as scheduled.
Need of Maintenance in Boats
Boat maintenance is different from plant or factory maintenance and more or less the same as automobile maintenance. Safety highly important in Boats, So daily inspection or checking is mandatory in some systems. And scheduled or regular interval maintenance required in few systems.
Each & every boat has to be maintained a specific checklist onboard for ensuring the ease of operation of the boat during the voyage, which includes most of the daily inspection list. Inspection based on the checklist having much importance and has to be done before powering up the boat.
· Boat hull:
· Engines & Propulsion system:
· Electrical system & controls:
· HVAC & Blowers
· Structures of Boat
· Entertainment system
· Safety Equipment
· Doors, windows, upholstery, etc.
The checklist helps the maintenance team a lot to find out the issues in the early-stage, And respective on-time rectification work will prevent a major break down. So the daily checklist having a major role in boat maintenance.
