To respond to rapidly increasing maintenance costs, poor availability, and concern over the effectiveness of traditional preventive maintenance programs, you must look at maintenance through a new perspective. The traditional approach to scheduled maintenance programs are based on the concept that every piece of equipment has a service life at which point complete overhaul is necessary to ensure safety and operating reliability.
We know that equipment failures could not be prevented or effectively reduced solely through traditional equipment lifecycle overhauls. You need to provide a maintenance-oriented framework to meet demand challenges. A maintenance program should be a structured, logical process for developing or optimizing the maintenance requirements of a resource to realize its inherent reliability.
Optima can help you design a methodology to balance the resources being used and optimize equipment reliability. The maintenance function can prevent equipment failure when condition-based or predictive maintenance tactics are implemented.
Optima can help you adopt a cost-effective maintenance plan by identifying what you want out of your equipment; what your equipment can do; the way in which it might fail to meet your requirements; and what you can do to ensure your equipment meets your expectations in a safe and cost-effective manner.
