Between 2015 to 2017 we completed statutory compliance assessments for maintenance programmes across all Australian States and Territories on over 150 facilities across 500 plus buildings, and over 300 unique asset types. We found compliance gaps from 10% to 35% based on asset type and maintenance frequency.
In this paper and case study, we show how our process was able to provide cost savings of up to 40% of total annual preventive maintenance through a rationalisation of the Preventive Maintenance (PM) strategy without increasing overall risk to operations and still assure compliance to mandatory maintenance.
This paper presents a methodology for the efficient upgrade of the maintenance strategies for all assets in existing facilities from initial asset confirmation to upload of the master data in the management system. The techniques are presented utilising a case study of a coal-fired power-station in Southeast Asia. The challenges which were addressed included an inaccurate plant configuration and inefficient preventive maintenance (PM) procedures resulting in a steady decline in the power-station reliability.
