Asset Reliability is often considered as a project to improve equipment performance, collect information on failures, select a way to avoid these failures, add these actions to the maintenance plan and the project is finished.
to truly make this a sustainable and effective process requires a "Change of Culture", a change of behaviour for all departments and functions in an organisation.
This must include:
- Engineering (define process and build/install equipment and processes),
- Procurement (to purchase the right materials at the best conditions),
- Finance/Management (to make the right finance and resources available),
- Production (to run the processes and machines in the most efficient ways) and
- Maintenance (to maintain and keep the assets running in the most efficient way)
"A RELIABILITY CULTURE IN THE WHOLE ORGANISATION"
- A well established and accepted organisation and processes in which Reliability is seen as a common goal to ensure a safe and environmental responsible process, minimise cost and optimise production capacity.
- Correct, updated and detailed machine information
- Clear definitions and details on impact of machine or process failure on Personal/Food Safety, Environment, Customer Satisfaction and Production Capacity
- Definitions on the best reliability strategies for each machine related to the expected machine and process output
- A well maintained and optimised technical store with just the right spare-parts at the right quantity at the right condition to ensure the importante assets keep functioning
- A thorough feedback process on all above process steps to ensure a continuous cycle of improvement.
This last step is often forgotten or neglected but is key for improvement and sustainable behaviour and processes.
What can "Asset Reliability Advice" do to assist you in this process ?
As the company name says.... Advice (and support and coaching) on:
- Setup, implementation and integration of Reliability as a culture in the organisation
-Optimising production asset (support design, build and maintain)
- Organise and optimise the use of resources, humans and materials, to ensure only value added work is executed (Work preparation, Planning, Scheduling and Feedback process, combined as "WorkFlow Management))
- The use and setup of supporting tools, e.g. CMMS systemen (in particular expertice in Maximo, but also on other systems)
- Optimisation of technical stores, spare-parts management and procurement processes.
