1.0 INTRODUCTION

“The effort in
connection with different technical and administrative action to keep a
physical asset, or restore it to a condition where it can perform a required
function” are defined as maintenance management (Chan, Lee and Burnett, 2001). Many
maintenance managers see planned and preventive maintenance as a prudent
investment, as the money and resources invested today are liable to be lower
than the costs of reactive maintenance in the future from the previous case
studies of hotel maintenance management in Sanya, China, (Michael Pitt,2016).

Satisfactory
return can be provided with good maintenance management to guarantee an asset.
Assets must be maintained more effectively and professionally to acquire
“best value for money”. As such, effective maintenance management
requires a more comprehensive and comprehensive approach. Satisfactory returned
will not be provided by assets if maintenance management against them is
neglected or maintenance will only be made against them when serious damages or
user breaks in which assets are not achieving optimum levels. This reactive
approach can be very harmful to all parties. Damage often gets to the new level
of repair and this can disrupt the productivity. Maintenance management should
be emphasized particularly on certain assets and avoid long-term losses.

By keeping the
productivity performance of plants and machineries in a reliable and safe
operating condition, maintenance provides critical support for heavy and
capital-intensive industries (Aditya Parida, 2015). Now, to sustain
competitiveness, manufacturing systems are operating more efficiently,
effectively and economically (Wang and Hwang, 2004). On this paper, we give an overview of various types of maintenance
management in the previous literature that related to some real case study.

2.1 LITERATURE
REVIEW

After an
overview of maintenance, the focus in the literature review was turned to
corrective maintenance. The literature was used to find a model for analysing
the maintenance management that have been discussed. The literature used was in
form of academic articles and some related case studies.

 

2.2.1.4 CORRECTIVE  MAINTENANCE

Corrective
maintenance or break down maintenance, which is used when a system or machine
face on failure. To create a successful operation again, it includes repair and
replacement of failed items. In contrast, the corrective maintenance actions
are not schedulable (Blischke and Murthy, 2003). Corrective maintenance is the
way to prevent equipment failures to be applied to the improvement of equipment
so that the equipment failure can be eliminated and the equipment can be easily
maintained (I.P.S Ahuja and J.S Khamba,2002).

Corrective maintenance
improves its equipment and components so that preventative maintenance can be
implemented with certainty. In using corrective maintenance, the tool with the
old design must be redesigned. Corrective maintenance is essential for
high-cost maintenance items for examples in poor maintenance, poor design or
external design specifications. The options to be made are between re-design
and recurrent cost of maintenance.
Some situations when
replacing machines are more economical than fixing then no repairs need to be
done. It is particularly appropriate when a chronic and repetitive failure
occurs and requires modifications. It requires engineering action rather than
maintenance but is often the responsibility of the maintenance department.

Case Study
Analysis: Hotel maintenance management in Sanya, China

From the hospitality point of view, renovation
defined as ‘the process of renewing and updating a hospitality property to
offset the ravages of use and modify spaces to meet the needs of changing
markets’ (Karam Mansour Ghazi, 2016). From hotels perspectives, viewed
renovation as ‘the process of retaining or improving the hotel image by
modifying the tangible product, due to a variety of reasons through any changes
in the hotel layout and any additions or replacement of materials and furniture,
fixture and equipment’ (Hassanien and Baum, 2002). In addition, renovation
incorporates replacement, restoration and redesigning at the Hotel
maintenance  management in Sanya, China.
This makes it a function of facility management of the hotel that deals with
the physical aspects of hospitality and not ‘soft’ service element. This
definition is therefore similar to the development of the corrective
maintenance because it requires inputs from many parts and levels of the
organization.
