The main objective of the project is to increase the availability of a machine and to reduce the down time of a machine to maximize production capacity i.e. reduce MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) and increase MTBF (Mean Time To Repair).The project is carried out on 21C press machine, Six months data was collected which clearly showed that this machine encountered highest number of breakdowns comparing to other machines in the plant. All the reason for the breakdown has been analyzed and inspected by the method of Fish bone diagram. By this analysis and methods the root causes of the breakdowns were identified. By all these procedures the availability of the machine will increases and also increases the production capacity, minimizes the maintenance cost and reduces the down time. It can be achieved by facilitating and standardizing the repair methodology and also the system can be adapted to other machines also.
