Production and Operations expect reliable assets that perform with confidence and 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.

Reliable Assets with 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
