Monition have developed a process for the optimisation of the maintenance regime and Plant Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedules through working in partnership with our clients.
To conduct the PPM development process, the best practices of Failure Modes Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) are to be used as it uses both applied science and the use of experience on the plant. The process is well documented and made traceable with built-in continuous improvement.
Monition play an integral role in the development processes with the knowledge and integration of CBM and lubricant management services in order to optimise the maintenance function. The link between these initiatives helps provide the framework for a financially sound proactive strategy with the main objective being to improve plant reliability and asset longevity.
This method is for reviewing and improving the Preventative Maintenance Schedules to ultimately generate life plans for each asset type. The key objective is to optimize the PPM’s, identify tasks missing from the current instructions, tailor instructions to each discipline and introduce more proactive maintenance solutions by adjusting the balance of maintenance strategies (time base, condition based, design out).
Plant Preventative Maintenance Development benefits include:
■ Apply science along with plant experiences to improve instructions
■ Ensure relevant tasks are issued to the relevant skill sets
■ Make task instructions better understood with feedback required
■ Ensure failure modes are alleviated with appropriate maintenance tasks
■ Provide a framework for review and development
■ Provide a reference document which can be used as a training structure
■ Provide fast establishment by using 80/20 approach
■ Improved maintenance instructions
■ Optimisation of maintenance workload
■ Reduce maintenance spend
■ Improve control of work instructions by including sign-off procedures
■ Improve machine reliability
