Equipment Maintenance Tips
A skilled maintenance crew is crucial to any operations team and they work best with an efficient spare parts inventory. Follow these steps to efficiency and effectiveness:
Categorize parts numerically or according to different sections of the machine. Be sure all crew members know and understand the method.
Check parts quantities frequently to keep necessary stock ready for emergencies and scheduled maintenance.
Stock/keep track of those parts most often replaced or required. When possible, use the manufacturer’s recommended parts. They’re designed and fabricated to work best with the equipment.
Be sure anyone ordering AFS parts has easy access to an AFS parts manual for quick reference
