The Right Work at the Right Time
Ever heard the term “Right Work at Right Time”? Sounds logical and simple, yet most plants have failed to capitalize on this fundamental principal to improve equipment reliability. Learn the difference between time-based, run-to-failure and condition based maintenance strategies – and why a condition-based strategy is most effective for random failures (which most equipment experiences). And a condition-based strategy costs far less per unit of production, creating an optimal balance between maximizing asset life and minimizing total maintenance cost.
Experienced Reliability Practitioners will train your team in Ivara® Maintenance Task Analysis (MTA) to identify the right work – the maintenance tasks that represent the minimum amount of work to ensure that a given asset delivers the performance needed. Using this RCM based failure mode analysis methodology allows for a faster, less resource intensive analysis. The result is a technically-sound program that eliminates any non-value added time-based inspection tasks, replacing them with appropriate condition-based inspections.
