Management approach to business processes in maintenance and repair of mining equipment

Satisfaction of raw material supply of the modern machine-building industry is generally achievable only using large-sized mining and transport equipment with unique parameters. Operating conditions of such equipment usually involve the heavy environmental impact, which calls for regular and frequent maintenance of the equipment components. With a view to maintaining serviceability of equipment, special-purpose maintenance and repair workshops are created in the mining industry. The maintenance and repair workshops possess their own processing facilities and, as a rule, specialize in a certain field of maintenance and repair. Such specialization is governed by the specifics of the mining equipment, and, first of all, by the unique mass and dimension parameters. In connection with this, all repair operations are carried out immediately on location sites of the equipment. As a rule, before actual repair, some outfitting is performed with partial dismantle of the equipment components. The outfitting is also unique and allows maintenance and repair partly using generic components of machines and mechanisms. It is required to reach the rational combinations of the generic components of equipment, the rational use of the outfitting structure, as well as the rational distribution of efforts of the task-specific workshops to reduce the time, the cost and the labor input of maintenance and repair.

Keywords: mining and processing integrated works, maintenance and repair, management, processing equipment, mathematical model, optimization data base.
