2. MRO – Inventory & Stores Consulting

The very meaning of MRO is having the right part, at the right time and in the right quantity. This service evaluates your current MRO strategy with an emphasis on identifying opportunities. This lets you begin taking control of your maintenance MRO spend.

  • review the principles of proactive planning and scheduling,
  • identify the benefits and prerequisites for specific planning tools,
  • examine how proactive planning and scheduling leads to
    • improved efficiency of resources,
    • reductions in backlog,
    • inventory and overtime and
    • increased equipment availability.

4. Reports & KPIs Facilitation

If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. And if you can’t control it, you can’t improve it. This service evaluates your business needs. Combined with best known methods it develops metrics that serve as leading indicators and others that serve as lagging indicators. Together these metrics will help you monitor the health of your assets and provide insight into your reliability journey. Our consultants will lead you through analysis, recommendations and development of a specific set of client based Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

5. Workflow Processes Development and SOPs

Standard Operating Procedures and Process Control Documentation describe the business processes, controls and guidelines associated with implementation and use of eMaint’s CMMS within the unique context of your operation. This service will help you understand how to use Process Control Documentation in order to help eliminate defects by ensuring your CMMS supports asset management and reliability best practices.

6. Reliability Concepts & eMaint Consulting

During the Reliability Concepts & eMaint Consulting service, you will review reliability concepts related to failure analysis techniques. You will also identify how the CMMS provides the foundational data to perform these analyses quickly and easily. These techniques will support the organization’s maintenance and reliability journey of excellence. Agenda topics include:
  • International Standards (ISO 55000 & ISO 14224),

  • Failure Modes & Effect Analysis (FMEA),
  • Asset Criticality Analysis (CA) and
  • Maintenance Repair & Operation (MRO).

7. PM Optimization Facilitation

Over time, added tasks begin to detract from the original reason the PM program was originally deployed. Conversely, most PM programs aren’t updated to effectively address or mitigate the degradation of a system and its components. PM programs should be periodically reviewed based on failure history and performance analysis. PM Optimization is the systematic review of preventative maintenance activities. Their purpose is to eliminate tasks that fail to add value or may induce problems. Additionally, they reduce the ambiguity of maintenance tasks that are not clearly written, avoid or eliminate redundant PM and condition-based maintenance tasks. They also make a PMO a living program, update as needed and allow the refocusing of constrained resources toward effective failure prevention maintenance activities.
