With high production rate, a critical equipment failure can potentially lead to millions of dollars in losses.
After trying multiple strategies and not seeing the targeted availability, they decided to conduct an RCM analysis with MaxGrip to determine the optimal strategy to implement across the entire site that would help meet the targeted availability and provide cost savings.
