Abstract: Maintenance plays a very pivotal role in the availability of the equipment’s, by eliminating of failure defects, forestall rapid wear of components, enhance performance level, reduce idle hours due to component malfunctioning, reduces the cost factor by identifying the fatigue in the early stage, by the early stage of detection the wear out can be drastically reduced and maximising the operational efficiency and prevent break down during operational working hours. The proper maintenance schedules yields minimisation of downtime by which the availability of the system improves and extends the useful life of the equipment and safety of the personnel working in the site conditions be secured optimistically. As the loose cargo and container shipments increasing in every years progressively the emphasis in the availability and probability of restoration of a failed equipment to operational effectiveness within a specified period of time, mean time to repair, mean time between failures parameters will certainly increases the customer satisfaction.
