Maintenance Reliability Transformation [MRT]
Stop the failures
Can you imagine what it would be like to suffer fewer failures? What if you came to work and the day wasn’t destroyed by equipment failures and poor performance? What if people did not have to come in during the night or the weekend to get equipment up and running again? And what if there were fewer injuries when work was rushed due to those failures?
If you have investigated “asset management” or “reliability improvement” you just may feel like the goals are a little unrealistic. It may all appear overwhelming – so much to learn, so much to do, all while you are still suffering failures.
We have built the Maintenance Reliability Transformation [MRT] process that will guide you, step-by-step through, the initiative:
How will you regain control?
Our process provides the guidance you need in all the core areas. You will:
- Assess your current strengths and weaknesses so you know where you stand. We’ll provide a tool to help you do that.
- Build relationships: Once you have a maintenance manager in place, it is essential to build a strong relationship with operations/production so everyone is on the same page pulling in the same direction. We include presentations you can use to create awareness.
- Establish the fundamentals: a functioning CMMS, an accurate spares and master asset list, an organized storeroom, and more.
- Determine how to prioritize your activities with basic “criticality analysis” and a “bad actor” list – focus your time on the 20% of assets that cause the downtime, overtime, maintenance expense, etc. We’ll provide a tool to help you do that.
- Review the maintenance tasks being performed: some waste your time, some harm your equipment, and some are missing – we’ll guide you through that process.
- Establish the fundamentals of planning and scheduling: organized and efficient – the right person doing the right job at the best time with minimal waste.
- Organize and improve the storeroom so parts/spares/materials are available, and they come off the shelf in “perfect” condition.
- Ensure the equipment is set up for success with precision alignment, fastening, and balancing, and it remains in that state with precision lubrication and cleaning.
- Get a view of the future with condition monitoring so the work can be planned and the root causes of failure can be identified and eliminated before they result in failure.
Yes, there are a few things to do, but we have broken it up into 78 smaller steps, all described in detail, so you can pick them off one by one.
