Abstract

The objective of this paper is to study on the effects of Preventive Maintenance Programme (PMP) implementation at a palm oil mill in Malaysia. There are many processes involved in extracting oil from the oil palm fruits bunches. The major processes, includes the oil palm fruits reception and grading, sterilization, thresher, digestion, pressing, clarification and kernel production. There are several important factors that need to be considered in PMP implementation at a palm oil mill. These factors comprise of the organization of preventive maintenance programme, scheduling, inspections and frequencies of the maintenance work. The study had shown that by implementing PMP the palm oil mill was able provide higher machineries availability and lower machineries failure rate. This paper had used the mathematical analysis to evaluate the availability of machine in the palm oil mill. Lastly, the author had proposed some suggestions on how to improve the effectiveness of the existing PMP at the palm oil mill.
