The present work included an endeavor for an active pursuing of an engineered amelioration and sustainability enhancement technique deduced from matching between a recent developing qualitative approach and one of the advanced maintenance engineering methodology. That technique combined two technical approaches: (Site applications of quality characteristics evaluating and activating design standardization (SAQCEADS+)) and (pro-active maintenance). The research paper encompasses an applied case in practice through particular emphasis on some dynamic mechanical components of carrying idler assembly for a troughed belt conveyor equipment in an industrial sand conveying system for a casting unit. Improved new designs of those parts had been accomplished and also an analysis and assessment of their performance according to what had been executed for them in the design, manufacturing, and maintenance sides. The conducted improvements which were driven by the present work technique fulfilled the requirements for the application under study, significantly resulted in enhancing quality and upgrading performance of what had been dealt with through considering the present technique orientation by a ratio of about 50%. Pursuing of such a technique contributes for a possible avoiding of performance weakness and major problems that might occur in the system implemented for, and to enrich working life of it.
