All over the India, most of the processing industries are involved with rolling operations for steel and alloyed materials. To perform these operations, rolling mills are used. But maintenance of such rolling mills is a tedious job, because these rolling mills work under certain critical conditions such as frequent load variations, higher temperatures etc. Hence, every component bears load variations, which results in wear and tear of components. This causes frequent breakdowns of rolling mill components. Thus, it involves lot of maintenance cost, loss of production time, more number of workforces to perform maintenance action etc. One such rolling mill, which is situated in Hingna MIDC, Nagpur is taken as a case study in the present work. This rolling mill uses preventive and break-down maintenance strategies. But, these strategies seem to be inadequate.
