We use multiple approaches to developing effective maintenance solutions for our clients, initially ensuring that maintenance is carried out to ensure regulatory compliance.
Using condition based monitoring to create maintenance regimes based on the assets actual operating context can be an additional, less invasive method using the numerous tools and techniques we have developed, to underpin this process and add significant value to our customers, whilst also reducing risks.
A multi-stage approach to understanding an assets actual operating context provides the asset stakeholders with a unique level of visibility regarding the assets criticality attributes – such as capacity, size, condition, performance, system redundancy and risks of failure.
Combined with detailed mitigation plans, incorporating the latest condition monitoring technology and detailed maintenance plans, we can use Failure Modes effect analysis to derive at the appropriate regimes for the asset, rather than ‘out of the box’ tasks, that have not been based on the individual assets operating context or condition.
Furthermore, we have now evolved our maintenance regimes to include environmental aspects which cover system downstream, building envelope and external impacts.
Regimes, as a result of these additional dimensions, can include pollution control and technical cleaning as part of mitigation plans.
The output of any engineering consultancy work, systemization and mitigation plans will all be visible in AIM along with real-time alerts for condition alarms, and performance deviations.
This data will then further fine tune the maintenance regimes based on asset performance and usage.
