Energetic Equipment Maintenance Logistics: Towards a Lean Approach
Salima Hammadi and Brahim Herrou
Abstract: Energy production and distribution requires an optimal functioning of all its equipment. That cannot be insured without an efficient maintenance policy maintaining the availability of material and non-material resources which are employed for the production or the distribution of electrical energy. The current energy context imposes several constraints among other those of costs optimization and environment preservation. The lean that is still marginalized in this context and limited to the manufacturing sector remains a promising concept for an efficient maintenance of energy equipment struggling against wastes, contributing to performance improvement and respecting the environmental balance. In this study, we try to describe a green maintenance strategy for energy equipment in the framework of the "lean" philosophy by proposing a practical model for a generic method conception to implement lean tools, integrating the spirit of Kaizen and participatory management in maintenance management, so as to converge towards maintenance logistics inspired by the lean culture to optimize its resources.
