The International Institute for Science, Technology and Education (IISTE)


The appraisal and the evaluation of maintenance culture, enhancing productivity through optimal machine availability and utilization in manufacturing industries has been carried out in the Akure metropolitan. Mathematical models were used to assess the performance of maintenance personnel in the four prominent manufacturing industries in Akure, Nigeria. The results obtained indicated that production machines are already getting old, thereby resulting to frequent breakdown. Maintenance analysis were generally poor due to poor review or monitoring of maintenance performance, low degree of planning, improper execution of preventive maintenance, lack of necessary spare parts, and inadequate maintenance personnel. Some useful suggestions were made in order to increase the effectiveness of maintenance in the industries. Keywords: Maintenance culture, Manufacturing industries, Evaluation, Akure metropolitan
