Utilize our unique process of PM Optimization; a blended approach of best practices that maximize PM effectiveness in a fraction of the time of traditional methods.
Never look at your PM’s the same way again. Infused with lean principles designed to eliminate waste, the results on average reduce PM labor hours by 40%.
PdM – CONDITION MONITORING
FMEA – FAILURE MODES EFFECTS ANALYSIS
Many maintenance organization’s strategies consist of “fix it after it breaks” (reactive) or “fix it before it breaks” (preventive). Progressive organization desires a strategy of “don’t fix it, eliminate the failures”.
A Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (FMEA) provides the insight to possible issues that affect the reliability of these important assets. FMEA is a structured risk-based methodology for determining critical equipment functions, functional failures, assessment to causes of failures and their effects. The purpose is to understand the failure modes and their effects to design a mitigation strategy to re-design, re-engineer or completely eliminate the failure mode. If elimination of then failure mode is not possible or practical, then addressing the failure with another appropriate action is detailed.
RCM – RELIABILITY CENTERED MAINTENANCE
RCM is a 7-question based process leading to development of maintenance strategies based on ensuring assets performance achieves the design specification or required operational conditions.
It is generally used to achieve improvements in fields such as the establishment of safe minimum levels of maintenance, changes to operating procedures and strategies and the establishment of capital maintenance regimes and plans. Successful implementation of RCM will lead to increases in cost effectiveness, machine uptime, and a greater understanding of the level of risk that the organization is managing.
RCM is defined by the technical standard SAE JA1011 , Evaluation Criteria for RCM Processes, which sets minimum criteria to qualify as an RCM process and follows these questions:
What is the item supposed to do and its associated performance standards?
In what ways can it fail to provide the required functions?
What are the events that cause each failure?
What happens when each failure occurs?
In what way does each failure matter?
What systematic task can be performed to prevent the consequences of the failure?
What must be done if a suitable preventive task cannot be found?
RCFA – ROOT CAUSE FAILURE ANALYSIS
Don’t just fix it….find the cause and eliminate it all together.
Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) is a structured process that uncovers the physical, human, and latent causes of any undesirable event in the workplace. The service determines why the incident, failure or breakdown occurred and how future failures can be eliminated or prevented in the future.
SEAM Group designs, trains and implements a continuous improvement RCFA process in your normal maintenance flow to address “bad actors”. We set the appropriate triggers to initiate the RCFA event based on tracking failure data from work history or show techniques to evaluate PdM results used to trigger the event as well.
RELIABILITY ENGINEERING – BAD ACTOR MANAGEMENT
Create a training/mentoring program with SEAM Group's team of leading Reliability Engineers. Provide the added dimension of control by implementing a full-scale Bad Actor Management Program addressing all aspects of continuous improvement in maintenance and reliability.
