MaxGrip’s Asset Improvement Program (AIP) translates Asset Performance Management challenges into a practical and bespoke improvement roadmap. Together we deploy the improvements and you will reap the benefits. We typically see clients coming to us with challenges like the need to optimize production output, to reduce Total Cost of Ownership or to overcome compliance issues. We know that each organization has its own business context; there is no standard fix. Therefore, our asset performance management program is always tailored to the organization as much as is needed.

In three stages to sustainable success

It starts with a situational asset performance assessment, called the Asset Improvement Mapping (AIM). This AIM ends with a pragmatic roadmap that is tailored to your organization and endorsed by senior management. In the next stage, the Asset Improvement Deployment (AID), we help you to achieve those improvements by implementing the changes and proving success. In the last phase, the Asset Improvement Rollout (AIR), we can support you in scaling up to standardize and expand results across sites.

What our clients say

Martijn Hadders

“I was looking for an adaptable asset management program that would lift maintenance globally to the next level while respecting a production site’s autonomy. It needed to encourage a change in mindset and way of working without the rigidity of a standardized corporate program. It also had to bring quantified bottom-line improvements.

To me, the most important condition for success of this project, next to the actual savings, is the cultural change. It is about more than bringing people to the next level of knowledge and expertise; a key success factor is the workforce understanding the reasons for implementing the improvement program and them adopting it.

It is very exciting that we have been able to achieve this in our initial projects. It now can and will be used to entice other site managers to apply this improvement program for their locations.”

Stage 2: Asset Improvement Deployment

As an Asset Improvement Mapping and resulting improvement roadmap is tailored to the client’s situation and targets, no deployment is exactly the same. However, in all deployments we cover the five essential elements of the ability to improve: Data | Systems & tools | Processes | Roles & responsibilities | Culture & way of working

Our consultants are also hands-on and work with you on the deployment. Including:

  • Filling in the gaps: data cleansing, master data agreements, connecting IT and OT data
  • APM system and tooling implementation and adoption
  • Workflow improvements
  • Develop and embed training materials and documentation
  • Scope definition, planning & scheduling the deployment, implementing KPI dashboards
  • Training, shoulder to shoulder intervention, adoption of changes 

Connecting and aligning people, processes, systems and data is pivotal to stimulate change and realize lasting results. At a strategic level we provide program management and coaching and show how to improve processes and the way of working. We also improve the use of APM / Industry 4.0 systems to demonstrate progress and increased performance.

Stage 3: Asset Improvement Rollout

In the last stage we scale up to multiple sites or plant wide, depending on your goals. Clients interested in this final stage are typically multi-site companies. Our proven approach for such organizations includes:

  • Clustering of sites based on the estimated maturity level
  • One Asset Improvement Mapping performed per cluster
  • Improvement roadmap and deployment blueprint tailored to the cluster
  • Start deployment with appointed cluster lighthouse sites where site management has ownership and MaxGrip coaches
  • Embed and sustain: continuous improvement loops for all sites, client in the driver’s seat and MaxGrip’s role scaled back
