Optimise work management and data collection to complete the link between assets, maintenance and strategy.
Effective asset maintenance goes beyond replacing a worn-out part when needed or checking fluids at a scheduled interval. Whether conducting an emergency repair or undertaking routine preventive maintenance, the work order serves as the electronic “paperwork”, recording the details of the activity performed including the people assigned, the time it took to complete, and the quantity of materials consumed.
It is the team on the ground executing work orders that provide the interface between physical assets, Maintenance Planners and Reliability Engineers. When the work execution process enables them to take meter readings, record observations or accurately record their time, the information captured paints an invaluable picture of the asset’s condition and performance. Done well, the work order becomes a snapshot in time, providing insight into the effectiveness of the maintenance strategy, job costing and operational practices.
When screen time spent managing the paperwork of work execution impacts tool time in getting the work done, the result invariably is poor job completion and missing data, representing a lost opportunity to the business. Clarita works to streamline work execution processes to maximise the value of maintenance resources in the field and capture work data for heightened asset insight. We have helped clients to:
- develop process flows for executing planned and unplanned work orders
- implement meters on inspection work orders to monitor asset condition and trigger corrective works when thresholds are reached
- integrate Permit to Work and risk assessment tools within EAMS/CMMS to create a consistent workflow for maintenance workers in hazardous environments. Eliminating the need to switch between apps in the field boosts compliance and timeliness of work execution
- draw asset and operations information together in an Operations Dashboard to monitor performance and key performance indicators.
Reduce unexpected downtime.
Ensure maintenance parts are available when and where they are needed and leverage efficiencies in invnetory procurement.
Improve the ratio of reactive to scheduled work orders as a measure of maintenance effectiveness.
Streamline capture of data from the front-line of asset performance to inform operational and strategic decision making.
