Preventive Maintenance Optimization Process

The Preventive Maintenance Optimization Process is generally used for existing facilities and equipment with a history of failures and an established PM program.

The Preventive Maintenance Optimization process can benefit every facility. Preventive maintenance is any maintenance we do to prevent further, more consequential maintenance. Efficient and effective preventive maintenance keeps production moving and minimizes downtime. Maintenance Strategy Methodologies Boiling it down to the ‘big three’ universally accepted methodologies for developing a maintenance strategy for your equipment, each…

Reliability Centered Maintenance Principles

Reliability Centered Maintenance principles provide a function-based system for building a physical asset care program.

Reliability Centered Maintenance principles provide a function-based system for building a physical asset care program. Rather than replacing components on a set schedule whether they need it or not, RCM identifies those that affect equipment function. This allows maintenance crews to focus on avoiding the consequences of the failure of those components, ensuring that plant…

Maintenance And Reliability Solutions

Maintenance and reliability are core value drivers for any business. The role of maintenance is to maintain the reliability of the asset.

Maintenance and reliability are core value drivers for any business. Assets arrive at our facilities with inherent reliability. That inherent reliability is predicated on how well the machine was designed, built, and installed. Once it is in operation, you can’t ‘maintain’ more reliability into it than it has inherently. So, the primary role of maintenance…

Predictive Maintenance PdM Prevents Shutdowns

Predictive Maintenance PdM is the next logical step beyond preventive maintenance for a proactive approach to maintenance execution.

Predictive Maintenance PdM is the next logical step beyond preventive maintenance for a proactive approach to maintenance execution. PdM is often synonymous with Condition Based Maintenance. This practice is the starting point for the digital transformation of your factory and the cornerstone of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). Preventive Maintenance PM Vs Predictive Maintenance…

Storeroom Management Is Critical To Maintenance And Reliability

Storeroom management is the practice of ensuring that the maintenance storeroom has the right part, at the right time, and in the right quantity.

Storeroom management is the practice of ensuring that the maintenance storeroom has the right part, at the right time, and in the right quantity. The storeroom, and the intentional administration of spare parts in general, is the single most critical element of modern maintenance and reliability efforts. Companies that have not yet discovered that access…

A Preventive Maintenance Plan Delivers Reliability

A preventive maintenance plan should deliver the results that are essential for good maintenance and reliability.

A preventive maintenance plan should deliver the results that are essential for good maintenance and reliability. Preventive maintenance is any maintenance we do to prevent further, more consequential maintenance. Unfortunately, many (if not most) production departments view almost all scheduled PMs as a nuisance and an interruption to productivity. It is crucial to consider the…

Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Reduces Costs and Downtime

maintenance planning and scheduling

Maintenance planning and scheduling is a hot topic in manufacturing today. Maintenance professionals everywhere know that, as Ben Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” But in reality, scheduled maintenance often takes a backseat to urgent production and maintenance issues or other priorities. Many facilities operate in a largely reactive…

Preventive Maintenance Optimization PMO

Preventive Maintenance Optimization PMO Maintenance Innovators

Preventive Maintenance Optimization PMO is an accepted methodology that organizations can use to develop a strategy for equipment maintenance. PMO is generally used on existing equipment at a facility where there is a history of equipment failures and where a preventive maintenance PM program is already in place. The major focus of PMO is to eliminate past…

Reliability Centered Maintenance RCM Optimizes Operations

Reliability Centered Maintenance RCM

Reliability Centered Maintenance RCM is a technique (methodology, really) for building a physical asset care program. It is system function-based, and is generally applied on a component basis. Rather than simply replacing components on a set schedule regardless of their condition, RCM identifies those that affect equipment function. This allows maintenance crews to focus on avoiding the…
