DO YOU WANT TO REDUCE UNPLANNED DOWNTIME?
DO YOU WANT TO REDUCE PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE COSTS?
DO YOU WANT TO GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR EXISTING ASSETS?
A real-time MOM-focused maintenance management system (MMS) enables manufacturers to achieve the following, whilst increasing overall operational efficiency...
Better visibility and management of maintenance activities, including resources, spare parts, equipment failure & breakdowns, their frequencies, and root causes
Reduced maintenance costs by optimising scheduled maintenance activities
Reduced unplanned production downtime
Improved production schedules and product quality
Maximise the value out of existing assets such as equipment, systems and resources to eliminate extra capital expenditure
Improved KPIs; Mean Time To Repair (MTTR), downtime, Preventive Maintenance (PM) intervals, Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), labour, and parts
High maintenance costs can be experienced as a result of a number of things, such as; unplanned downtime, equipment faults, breakdowns and lost production from quality, time or speed. Even if equipment is operational, it may not be running at maximum speed, it may break down too regularly creating inconsistent product quality – which generates too much waste, uses more energy and disrupts planning and scheduling. Determining how much, where and why the costs are occurring and establishing the root causes of high maintenance costs is the first step to managing and reducing these costs.
Unplanned maintenance costs result in lost production, higher part costs, and lost time for fixing the problem; costing significantly more than planned maintenance. Preventive maintenance can be planned, reducing the costs as shut down can be planned to coincide with production downtime. Therefore, preventive and reactive maintenance needs to be controlled and managed effectively so to keep equipment producing consistently high product quality. Productivity can be improved by minimising unscheduled equipment downtime and getting maximum value out of your assets.
