Maintenance Improvement

PEME uses a robust Maintenance Improvement approach, tailoring best-practice reliability methodologies into a fast-track project which allows us to introduce a better Preventive Maintenance regime in a relatively short timescale.

A PEME Maintenance Improvement project takes into account the local operational context and identifies the most cost-effective Preventive Maintenance strategy for each asset to address the dominant failure modes.

The Maintenance Improvement project reviews the Plant and machinery in place, ensures the Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) is accurate and captures existing maintenance arrangements. Failure data history is analysed to identify reoccurring failures which can be addressed by preventive maintenance tasks. A Criticality Review is conducted and used to select maintenance tasks.

Other activities include a Lubrication Survey, Condition Monitoring Survey, Statutory Maintenance review and Asset Condition Survey.

The information from these activities are used with PEME’s Fast-track  RCM methodology to produce new or improved preventive maintenance Task Lists, which are captured in the CMMS in the form of an updated asset register and with tailored, focused preventive maintenance tasks detailing what needs to be done, by whom and at what intervals. The new tasks are justified, unambiguous and quantitative. The level-of-effort required to deliver the new Maintenance Plan is quantified and manning level requirements can be planned and budgeted accordingly, allowing resource to be targeted where it is best utilised.

We structure the Maintenance Improvement project to deliver against a rolling implementation programme, allowing the early realisation of business benefits and provide feedback to drive further improvements.

The Maintenance Improvement project establishes an appropriate and improved Preventive Maintenance regime, ensuring real-world failure modes are addressed by the least intrusive means. A tailored, through-life Asset Care solution is then developed by PEME and is used to mobilise the new maintenance regime.  This leads to improved equipment condition, fewer breakdowns and higher up-time.
