This is another how long is a piece of string question and depends largely on what assets you are managing, what strategic context exists for their use, what systems of maintenance you use, what corporate KPI measurement system you might have and so on.

For example if you have a fairly simple approach to maintenance then the first link includes a fairly comprehensive list of potential maintenance KPIs (page 3 of the article). And the second is more of a discussion overview that may add further context.
Link 1
Link 2

If your company uses Strategy Maps in its strategy deployment and the Balanced Scorecard as its performance management system then the following article on the "maintenance scorecard" may be more appropriate.
Link3

There again if you are very sophisticated (or wish to be) in your maintenance management system then perhaps KPIs related to Reliability Centered Maintenance may be best for you. If you are unfamiliar with RCM this link is a good introduction. Link4

The following link highlights a book by John Moubray (a recognised world leader and pioneer in the development of RCM) which includes a chapter on maintenance metrics Link5
(this may have been further updated in 2001 see Amazon.co.uk)
And to finish off the company John founded can be found here

Good Luck

Thanks for the information, I found it very useful. Reading into the subject it would seem that a lot of companies use KPI's, however they seem to be in the minority if they have set them up correctly from what I have read the majority of companies just use them as a numbers manufacturing system and don't use them to focus on the important issues to improve their maintenance.
Anyway thanks again for taking the time to respond.
Regards

Ron,
It's a case of using the best KPI's to get what you need - there are a lot of useless one if they do not suit your requirements. Why do the measuremnts if you don't use the figures!

Ron,
There are 3 KPI's I would suggest

a. Machine/process downtime (hours).
For each machine or process the downtimes (mechanical or electrical) are recorded as part of our OEE.

b. Cost of downtime (£)
Having the downtime data (hours) allows you to calculate a cost for the loss of production, using either the machine hourly rate or cost of product lost/missed due to the machine breakdown. Using this type of measure allows you to illusrtrate the financial impact of any machine downtime, also its an easy KPI for everyone within to understand and relate to, inparticular those people with limited knowledge of maintenance.

c. Maintenance budget or spend
Record the monthly spend for the maintenance department or team. The amount spent on maintenance should ensure that cost of machine downtime and loss of production are kept to £0.00, as far possible. The aim should be for maintenance to be self funding, ie whatever money is spent on maintenance should aim to deliver a financial saving or benefit.

I hope this helps.

Reliability metrics, (MTBF - Mean Time BEFORE Failure, not Mean Time Between Failure since this only applies to constant failure rate), tend to be more accurate than OEE. Reliability looks at the functionality of the asset where as Availability can be 'fudged' to look good.

An example is a conveyor system, where the first stage of the conveyor fails but because human resources are available to hand ball the product on to the 2nd stage there dosn't appear to be a failure and availablity becomes pseudo in nature.

If you were to look at failure interval and just as improtantly Mean Time to Repair it would give you a better idea as to how the asseet was perfoming.

That said, reliability can aslo be 'fudged'. It's a matter of disciplien at the end of the day.
