The applicability of various industrial engineering techniques to operation and maintenance of secondary waste treatment plants was evaluated. Numerous techniques used in military and industrial projects were evaluated and applied in a case study at the Flint, Michigan, waste treatment plant using actual plant data, practices, and procedures. Emphasis was placed on Work Study and Reliability and Maintainability analysis. A variety of techniques were directly and beneficially applicable to the development of rational management programs for design, operation, maintenance, staffing, and quality control. An overall approach to develop complete management programs was developed whereby designers or managers could start from effluent goals and rationally develop designs, O and M procedures, and staffing levels as well as increase plant reliability.
