Open pit mining is simply about large machinery moving large amounts of material. The optimal operation and maintenance of these machines is critical to business success. In 2010, Teck operations initiated a journey to develop and implement a “World Class” maintenance program across Teck. Five years into the journey, I examine the effectiveness of the implementation of the program on the mining fleets in the coal business unit. I use a series of academic tools to evaluate the successes and shortfalls in achieving the original objectives of the program in the time expected. I then recommend a renewed vision and implementation strategy defined in a focused activity map. The new target value is smaller than the original program but more clearly defined.
