Corrective Maintenance Practices and Operational Performance of Manufacturing Firms Listed in the Nairobi Securities Exchange
The study was entitled corrective maintenance practices and operational performance of manufacturing firms listed in the Nairobi securities exchange. The main objective of the study was to determine how the different corrective maintenance practices have an impact on the operational performance of the firms. It also sought to establish the extent of application of the various corrective maintenance practices by the firms and the remedial actions taken. The statement of the problem explains why the study was necessary. The study seeks to assist policy and decision makers to base their decisions on empirical evidence. A questionnaire was designed and administered in order to achieve the above objectives. Data collected was analyzed using MS excel and Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings reveal that 23.1 % of the respondents use purely corrective maintenance while the rest use either preventive maintenance or a combination of the two maintenance policies. The study also shows that most of the firms use planned corrective maintenance strategies and not unplanned. A relationship was also established between corrective maintenance practices and the various variables of operational performance. This was in agreement with the other studies carried out on maintenance and operational performance as shown in chapter two under literature review.
