How to Improve Your PM Program in 10 Steps

How to Improve Your PM Program in 10 Steps

If you currently have a preventive maintenance (PM) program in place and want to improve it, there are 10 steps you can follow to do so. Following these steps will uncover inefficiencies, including over- and under-scheduled PMs, equipment with PMs that don’t need them, and noncritical equipment that is  prioritized over critical equipment for preventive maintenance.

Equipment Strategy Development Using a Modular Approach

One of the most cost-effective approaches for system-level reliability improvement is to develop strategies for critical equipment. Equipment strategies may include preventive maintenance (PM), predictive maintenance (PdM), continuous monitoring, commissioning, and redesign. Each of these strategies can be used individually or combined with one or more of the other strategies, with the ultimate goal to optimize the lifecycle cost (LCC).

Worthington Industries’ Journey from Firefighting to First-Class Maintenance

Worthington Industries’ Journey from Firefighting to First-Class Maintenance

Worthington Industries, a global diversified metals manufacturer, recently finished a complete transformation of the maintenance department at its Columbus, Ohio, steel processing facility. In 2012, with maintenance accounting for the highest percentage of facility downtime at 7.2 percent and a growing open order backlog topping 280, the team decided it was time for change.

by Jim Oldach, CH2M, and Eric Stevens, Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati

The Metropolitan Sewer District in Greater Cincinnati has embarked on a reliability journey that has been very successful. It has helped to improve the reliability and reduced reactive maintenance cost across the wastewater treatment division. A small, but very energetic portion of the journey has been the Preventive Maintenance Optimization program. Through this process we have reduced duplicate PM’s all over the treatment division. This process has also allowed us to verify the strategy on each asset type. We have also used it to help improve the award winning asset condition monitoring team. Overall MSDGC’s preventive maintenance optimization program has had an annual reduction in maintenance cost of $250,000.

The Importance of Preventive Maintenance

The Importance of Preventive Maintenance

Picture this: Like many Americans, you own a motor vehicle of some sort. That vehicle gets you from Point A to Point B, day in and day out. But, if you’re like most vehicle owners, you don’t consider basic routine maintenance, even on something you rely on the most. It is more of a break/fix relationship. Unfortunately, this same type of relationship is not uncommon in today’s data center industry. Various types of equipment are running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, which comes out to 8,760 hours in a year. Data centers cannot afford any of their equipment to fail. Therefore, preventive maintenance (PM) is a must.

The Technology for Better Preventive Maintenance Procedures

The Technology for Better Preventive Maintenance Procedures

The goal for maintenance managers is simple: Oversee the successful installation, repair and upkeep of the facility’s assets for smooth operations and on track budgets. This goal is certainly obtainable in an ideal setting where inventory is always in stock, technicians are continuously efficient and assets are always running.

Pushing IIoT Predictive Maintenance Forward: Two Challenges to Overcome

Pushing IIoT Predictive Maintenance Forward: Two Challenges to Overcome

There’s no doubt the Internet of Things (IoT) is moving quickly to the front lines of industrial maintenance reliability and asset management. Communication between machines and human technicians, enabled by wireless technology and connected devices, is fueling a shift from preventative to predictive maintenance. But while the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) groundwork has been laid, and it’s projected to be a $151 billion market by 2020, the revolution is still young.

Connected Maintenance Solutions Enable New Business Models

Connected Maintenance Solutions Enable New Business Models

There is tremendous hype around the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT), but the IoT is not a singular entity as the value proposition, timeline and technological needs vary widely across its three major domains – industrial, consumer and healthcare. The hype across all three of these IoT domains is palatable, with talk of industry 4.0, smart homes and digital healthcare increasing on a daily basis. This makes finding the right IoT markets and the best bets an enormous challenge.
