Enhancing Building Performance Through More Responsive Maintenance System
MetadataShow full item record
Previous studies have applied different techniques and concepts to planning, designing and executing construction projects. However, few studies have been conducted in maintaining such projects. Maintaining and operating any constructed facility costs more than its initial cost. The aim of this study is to improve maintenance processes by simulating the concept of multi-skilled technician to an existing maintenance process. Statistical data and maintenance process map of Saudi Consolidated Electric Company (SCECO) are modeled in Extend+BPR® to be an experimental tool for evaluating the benefits of multi-skilled technicians. The simulation models of this study showed significant improvement in both preventive and corrective maintenance processes.
