How many companies have Asset Performance Management (APM) objectives and KPIs in place? How many drive APM consistently, measure and report outcomes and act accordingly? And make justified decisions on CAPEX and OPEX expenditure and future investments? Additionally, how many have IT, Maintenance, Inspection and Operations aligned and have these departments share business goals? Are budgets allocated realistically and managed properly? Are asset management practices standardized across countries and sites? These are all essential aspects to reduce Total Cost of Ownership from the perspective of APM. We still have to find a company who can answer all of the above with ‘yes’.

At MaxGrip we believe in a pragmatic approach including breaking down a large project into manageable steps to realize structural improvements. Lowering the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) through asset management requires a realistic approach that befits your situation and business targets. For every stage of the improvement journey we connect the dots between the management perspective, engineering the required asset performance and executing asset management activities in practice.

How We Help

Asset Improvement Program

The Asset Improvement Program is tailored to your needs and objectives. It consists of three steps. First, an APM assessment called the Asset Improvement Mapping offers you insights into your plant’s current situation. This stage delivers a business case and practical roadmap to reach your targets. In the second stage, the Asset Improvement Deployment, we start with deploying the roadmap on a limited scale to prove success of the approach. Then, as a final step, we scale up to deploy on a full scale at one site or multiple locations, depending on your needs. This is the stage in which we can truly influence TCO, optimize margins and improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
