We got a chuckle from this list of 34 Signs You’re Living in the Real World of Maintenance from Reliable Plant.

Among our favorites …

We have a couple of machines that vacationed in Hawaii on frequent flier miles built up on parts air-shipped in for them.

We discussed whether it was possible that a machine could need so much ongoing maintenance, that it was theoretically never available for production.

There was a role clarification meeting between operations and maintenance management, and it seems like the outcome was quite clear. It’s definitely their job to break the machines, and our job to fix them.
