Defining the Blueprint
Defining EAM system requirements from end user perspective. This was followed by testing the system and validating the setup in workshops with role play to enact the user journey for different roles and disciplines. Focus was long-term value.
The processes were elaborately described including flow charts and a responsibility matrix (RACI). The process documentation is easily accessible through the system and acts as both a manual and reference guide.
QR Codes for Assets
The asset hierarchy was built up in a logical way with descriptive codes that clearly denote the place and function of the assets. The assets were also marked with a QR Code. These codes could be scanned with an app to easily consult information and data.
The operators of the pilot plant carry out minor maintenance tasks such as lubrication, sealing and visual inspections of the assets.
Yearly, the maintenance department at the R&D location performed a maintenance performance scan to track progress. The scan takes factors into account such as Asset master data, Organization and competences and Maintenance plan and risk control. On a 5-point scale, the location improved its overall score from 1,7 to 4,2 in three years. The R&D facility shares results, innovations, successes and also pitfalls with the company’s production locations.
