The rapid development of mechanization in the construction industry has, to a large extent, currently ceased. Technical plant departments and their workshops had to adjust to the situation. The efficiency of a machine can depend on the organization and execution of repairs. Here planning begins with the procurement of a machine and includes the training and education of the machine operators and the continuous monitoring by the mechanical engineer. The author gives a comprehensive survey of the repair business. Precautionary measures are discussed such as: choice of personnel, the use of machine history cards, inspections, checks, continued repair by the site workshop on large sites or the repair gang at the plant yard or by local agents. Also discussed are the workshops at the plant yard, their equipping and organization and the implementation of large repairs. The importance of training young and new personnel is especially stressed. For large repairs a series of separate cases is dealt with and the considerations necessary for the efficient implementation of a basic overhaul are discussed. Finally the stocking of spare parts and their acquisition are investigated and recommendations made for evaluating the costs of running a repair workshop. /TRRL/
