Maintenance Performance

"Unexpected maintenance issues and downtime costs our company a lot of time and money. How can we improve our maintenance performance?"

Maintenance Performance Assessment

The maintenance team keeps processes running smoothly, ensuring the product is able to keep flowing to the customer. Maintenance is a necessary resource when equipment availability meets demand or when equipment needs repair. If maintenance performance needs to be improved in any area like preventive maintenance, maintenance staffing, or planning and scheduling, overall productivity--not to mention the company’s bottom line--will suffer.

There are many maintenance philosophies, ranging from a mentality of “run until it breaks” to constant monitoring and repair of equipment. In most facilities, a preventive maintenance program ensures the best performance. Regular equipment maintenance is essential in preventing failure of the equipment, which can greatly affect productivity.

DEVELOPING A PLAN

Overall, downtime costs most factories somewhere between 5% and 20% of their productive capacity. - PTC

Unplanned downtimes cost an estimated $50 billion every year. - Deloitte

In order to improve maintenance performance, the first thing you need to do is develop a plan for improvement. Perhaps you want to minimize downtime of equipment or maybe you want to reorganize your assets. To see the maintenance performance improvement you want to see, you will first need to develop a plan and a timetable.

At POWERS, we analyze your current maintenance processes to develop a plan customized to meet the needs of your organization. We help you to implement the plan so that your maintenance team can become accustomed to any new processes. With the improvement of maintenance performance, overall productivity will increase.

UPDATING TECHNOLOGY

This is especially important if your organization is still relying on pen and paper or spreadsheets to track your assets and work orders. You may want to streamline your operations with the help of a computerized maintenance management system. This allows for an easier process for work orders, real time maintenance information, preventive maintenance scheduling, and labor reports.
