At Assetivo we have a range of tools and techniques to help you deliver real value from your critical assets and applied maintenance strategies.
Decide what assets are critical to the business and your organisational goals. Not all failures are equal. Not all failures have the same probability or consequences or risk. Use your organisation’s technical knowledge and take a risk-based approach by considering failure probability and the effects on health, safety, environment, quality, production, and maintenance costs. By understanding criticality, you understand where to focus your efforts and maintenance strategies.
Have high criticality assets? Failure Modes and Effects Analysis is the tool of choice to understand asset functions, failure modes, and effects. If you know these, you can create specific maintenance tasks to address the potential failures. It is central to the RCM approach. We use Isograph Availability Workbench RCMcost to develop our maintenance models. We offer FMECA as standard which incorporates the criticality and risk element and considers severity, occurrence and detectability for every identified failure mode. FMEA will also aid you in identifying critical spare parts.
Too many organisations play the guessing game. Building their maintenance ‘strategy’ as they go along. Adding tasks here and there, guessing the frequencies, blindly following OEM recommendations many years past the warranty periods. Or adding knee-jerk reaction PMs based on a one-off failure. Unnecessary life cycle costs build up and up. Assetivo uses the industry-leading Isograph Availability Workbench to help you develop a real, pragmatic, data and knowledge-driven maintenance strategy using tools such as criticality analysis and FMEAs.
Do you have a badly-thought out preventative maintenance plan? Are most tasks non-value added? Preventative Maintenance Optimisation (PMO) is the process of optimising your PM tasks. Assetivo will help you create or refine your strategy for only value-added tasks based on potential failure modes for the asset. No more ‘check the pump’ or the ‘inspect the pipe’. And why not? Because these untargeted, subjective tasks waste time and money and those life cycle costs keep on climbing with no improvement in asset performance.
