Do your mechanics, operators, and PdM personnel know why asset inspections matter? Do they have a means to document the issues they find in the field? Does it seem like everyone is checking everything and nothing all at the same time? Let us help you to ensure that you get timely actionable results from your rounds.
We take a hands on approach when it comes to PM Optimization. In order to identify the effectiveness of your PM's we first take a look at the backlog of PM's to establish if there are too many. We then take a look at the number of PM's expected to be completed in a given week. We then physically participate in PM's to gain a better understanding of the work required. After we have a clear understanding of the common PM's and failures your facility incurs we are able to evaluate the effectiveness of your PM program. We then help to identify what PM's are value added.
We know that daily rounds are an effective means to identify early failures. The front-line operators play a critical role in reliability. We work with your operations team to physically walk the rounds they currently perform and provide insight into what could be done to maximize the effectiveness of those rounds. We then work with you to build this information into a system that provides a feedback loop to all necessary parties.
We work with your condition monitoring team to verify the information gathered is being used to make the best decision possible with the information provided. We help the entire team to understand that condition monitoring is a means by which to avoid catastrophic failure and not a fortune telling machine.
