Avoiding unplanned downtime, enhances the safety of personnel, protects the environment, reduces expensive reactive maintenance costs and increases continued production revenues.
Optimal inspection planning
By applying methodologies like Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Risk based Inspections (RBI), we select the right inspection techniques to achieve optimum life-cycle cost. Per asset choices are made between decay, reactive, planned, proactive and predictive maintenance strategies.
Making extensive use of checklists, we help determine your as-is situation:
- What equipment is present.
- What condition are they in.
- What is the remaining life of the facility.
- What inspections are already planned.
- What regulations need to be complied with today (and in future!).
- What software is currently being used.
- What organization is in place to manage it all.
Our trained facilitator captures all this information on insightful dashboards.
Roadmapping is all about clearly articulating the desired to-be situation. Good benchmarks will help you assess where you're weak or strong. This allows the right focus areas to be determined and get alignment with all key stakeholders on how far you want to go, how to get there and how much it will cost.
Good change management also needs to be addressed, as this requires a lot more than 'bits & bytes'.
In the implementation phase, we specify in detail which inspections have to be performed when and with which equipment to achieve the desired level of reliability. Our experts document everything in your system of preference (e.g. GE Meridium, IBM Maximo).
The key is involving the right people in the right groups, to work on the right deliverables. The SCRUM methodology is often well suited for this.
Monitor & review results
Despite the best intentions, things change. Facilities get debottlenecked and operated differently, new technologies become available, budgets get cut, people leave the organization, etc.
Therefore, it is critical that a continuous improvement mechanism is in place to ensure that the inspection regimes achieve the desired reliability KPIs. And this includes celebrating as KPIs are met!
