The client wanted to set up a bad actor program in order to deal with their bad actors in a structured way. Some assets experienced frequent failures which resulted in high maintenance costs. Bad actors negatively impact the business and represent opportunities for asset performance improvement. Generally, the way to identify a bad actor is through their failure history, maintenance costs, downtime, and safety risk. At this facility, the bad actors were negatively impacting their reliability and availability, which drastically affected the bottom line.
After first attempting a Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) study in-house at one facility, the client found that for them to perform RCM studies on all their bad actors within the expected time frame, they would need the help of an external party that is experienced in RCM studies and also familiar with their industry and processes. Due to the positive experience with MaxGrip’s results at other sites around the globe and our in-depth understanding of their internal processes, our experience in working with the reliability and integrity software of Cenosco they use and specific business objectives, the client decided to bring in MaxGrip to execute this project.
