The project started out with the design phase of the global EAM blueprint. Taking existing standards as the starting point, for each process a multidisciplinary team of subject matter experts prepared new process designs in various sessions. The deployment of the tailor-made maintenance blueprint is still under way. Factors for success: the standardized deployment approach, Fit/gap and Ramp Up.
The project is under way with 36 production locations in 21 countries having been deployed and eleven sites to follow which will add eight more countries to the global project. We set and monitor performance against business critical KPIs and relate use of the EAM system to actual improvement of the plant’s Total Cost of Ownership. The global rollout of this uniform way of working enables the multinational to benchmark across sites.
Although the EAM blueprint and deployment project is not even half way through, the FMCG company already recognizes the project’s influence in increasing maintenance maturity. So far, the beverage multinational shows an increased OEE with 1 – 2% and extended lifetimes of their assets. With some of the production facilities still to be deployed, those results are expected to improve further.
