CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Take back your process. Don't let the ERP/EAM/CMMS consultants tell you how to run your business. Drive more value out of your existing EAM/ERP/CMMS systems by concentrating on the following five objectives.

1. Improving Planning Performance

Most EAM/ERP systems provide comprehensive planning and scheduling capabilities. It is generally accepted that proactive (i.e. planned), maintenance costs roughly 50% of reactive maintenance. Our experience is that companies tend to overestimate the level of planned maintenance they actually perform. These organizations are also generally not able to accurately report some of the key performance indicators that measure maintenance planning. Given that maintenance can comprise 30% to 50% of the total expenses in an asset intensive industry, improving the amount of planned maintenance can quickly result in significant ROI.

2. Reducing Training Time

Many companies do annual refresher training to try to improve the data quality and user abilities within the EAM systems that they utilize. By reducing the amount of time an MMP (Maintenance Performing Persons), Planner, Supervisor, or Technician spends in training, you can improve your labor efficiency and increase ROI.

3. Reducing Computer Screen Time for Maintenance Personnel

Time wasted navigating through multiple screens and multitudes of fields can lead to hours of inefficient time sitting in front of a computer. Look at how to calculate what it really costs you to get the information that you need into your systems, and the value of reducing that infamous screen-time.

4. Optimizing (Reducing) the Time to Return Assets to Production

There is a widely held consensus that the primary goal of every maintenance department is to keep its assets running at optimum capacity, and when they're down, returning them to the operation or production groups as soon as possible. While the value of the collective assets varies, there is a value for each individual asset, and as such, the value of returning that asset to service can be calculated. That number can provide helpful insight to your operation.

5. Optimizing Return of Assets to Support the Mission of Your Organization

Is the lack of reliability or predictability in your planning and scheduling systems / processes affecting your ability to accomplish your mission? It may not be possible to put a dollar figure on improved reliability or improved performance within your Planning and Scheduling departments, but you can calculate how returning assets to service faster can affect your mission. By increasing the utilization of your existing workforce and systems you'll maximize resources, increase uptime, and support your mission
through better reliability and availability.
