Production and Operations expect assets to perform reliably and with confidence to continue to perform flawlessly. Maintenance and inspection interventions to prevent failures are unwanted necessities. Repairs are even more disruptive but Production and Operations understand the importance and inevitability of maintenance and inspection. They are also part of the reasons why assets fail.

Our consultants know how to change this for you. We achieve significant improvements by the application of Risk-Based Maintenance (RBM) and Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM). This is combined with technology to monitor and predict critical Asset Health. Our experts also involve and inform Operators on how they can and must contribute to avoid unscheduled and unnecessary breakdowns.

How We Help

RCA and RCM

Root Cause Analysis

  • Setting up, doing and facilitating RCA studies

  • Realistic improvement potential scoped and reported

  • Deployment of improvements

  • Training operators and technicians

  • Deployment of cross-site standardized RCA approach

Reliability Centered Maintenance

  • Asset criticality studies

  • Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA)

  • Project management and stakeholder management

  • Business case with KPIs and realistic improvement potential

  • Realizing interdepartmental collaboration to get internal adoption of changes

  • Training and coaching of maintenance and operations workforce

  • Provide interim specialists

Reliability Centered Maintenance

It could be that your assets are working, unplanned downtime is acceptable, but you know that asset performance can be optimized, and should be optimized to reach business targets. In this case, you would want to establish a Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) strategy. This proven method is already many years old but the access to new, relatively cheap and better technology have given RCM a second life.

The biggest benefit of a RCM program is cost reduction through efficient maintenance methods, which are endorsed through EAM and APM solutions and access to OT data. Companies that successfully implement RCM see reduced maintenance and resource costs as well as increases equipment availability. Because criticality is determined through FMEA, a greater understanding of risk levels and consequences are established and limited resources can then be focused on assets that if failed, would cause the most disruption.

Typical benefits

Based on over twenty years of RCM expertise

  • A significant decrease in overall maintenance costs (OPEX and CAPEX)

  • Extended asset lifetimes

  • More predictable downtimes due to planned maintenance interventions

  • A higher overall asset availability and reliability
