dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research was to obtain estimation models for the time duration of maintenance and repair activities performed at selected sections of the Facilities Department at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayaguez (UPRM) and design a database using these models. These sections were Electricity, Refrigeration and Plumbing. Tasks performed by these sections were divided into activities and then classified as either constant or variable. The estimation models were a result of a combination of the times of both constant and variable activities. The time estimates database allows the user to estimate the total man- hours required to process a work order and obtain a Productivity Index (PI). A survey was conducted in the studied sections to determine opportunities for productivity and methods improvement taking into consideration the search for materials, material handling equipment, transportation, the setup activity, and the repair or service activity.en_US
dc.description.abstractEl propósito de esta investigación fue obtener modelos para la estimación de tiempos de reparación y mantenimiento realizadas por el Departamento de Facilidades de la UPRM y diseñar una base de datos para almacenar estos modelos. Las secciones seleccionadas fueron Electricidad, Refrigeración y Plomería. Las tareas que realizaba cada sección fueron divididas en actividades, las cuales fueron subdivididas en constantes o variables. Los modelos de estimación de tiempos fueron obtenidos de una combinación de los tiempos de estos dos tipos de actividades. La base de datos de tiempos estimados permite al usuario estimar las horas-hombre totales por órden de trabajo y un Índice de Productividad asociado a esta. Se suministró una encuesta entre los empleados de las secciones estudiadas para determinar oportunidades de mejora en términos de productividad y métodos de trabajo.en_US
