Jernbro Maintenance Way (JMW) is a model for evaluating, analysing, and producing plans to develop your maintenance activities.

We evaluate maintenance activities according to a standardised model and measure development over time. It allows us to compare various maintenance operations – JMW becomes a tool for benchmarking. The model is based on best practice and supports cost-effective maintenance with high reliability.

Based on best practice and each customer’s unique situation, goals, challenges and resources, we produce individual development plans.

Jernbro Maintenance Way is a tried and tested model, which we have developed ourselves. It is largely based on Lean and TPM, but is packaged and customised to fit our business. The method is illustrated in the form of a pyramid, which consists of a number of building blocks. Each block represents the various elements of maintenance and maintenance development. If you follow the plan, you will reduce your maintenance costs and increase operational reliability.

Jernbro Maintenance Way – in 5 easy steps


0. Situation assessment

We start with a situation assessment to identify where the organisation is within a number of different areas. The result is illustrated by colouring each block in the pyramid red, yellow or green.

1. Define goals

In the next step we identify the desired position of the organisation in order to be able to reach the specified goals. The purpose is to define goals you then can link to, for example achieve a certain level of reliability and minimize breakdowns. With the help of the pyramid, you see which areas need improvement to reach the goals.

2. Implementation

Here you start to implement a number of small improvements in the blocks of the pyramid. Each activity is linked to the blocks. There is a problem description and an action plan. This step can be seen as a master plan, where you get a visual picture of the overall level of the priority areas you need to work with to develop your maintenance activities.

3. Follow up

This step is about continuous follow up – that you follow the master plan and actually do those things agreed on. It is important to work methodically even if you don’t see results immediately. If you follow the plan, you can be sure to reach results.

4. Measurement

Now follow up and check that the actions have produced results. You can see how the pyramid begins to improve. Red blocks become yellow and some yellow blocks become green. You can also be sure that costs and operational reliability will improve in the long term.
