Too much maintenance is expensive, too little maintenance can result in stopped production, and PM Optimization (just like Goldilocks) is only a fairytale, right?

PM Optimization can seem like a long shot for most businesses. Daily routines are packed which doesn’t leave much time for optimization initiatives. Sensor data can be so vast that it’s hard to know where to start, and without proper criticality ratings, the sensors may be tracking useless information.

So How do you Find your Version of “Just Right”

Step 1 to PM Optimization: Build Your Foundation

Foundational asset data can be a complete win or loss for your business. With asset data that is complete and accurate work becomes frictionless. Planners, schedulers, and maintenance workers have the data they need to do their job at their fingertips. Time isn’t wasted searching for information, and data is accurate and up to date.

Step 2 to PM Optimization: Focus on Criticality Ratings

Part of achieving high quality foundational asset data is having complete and accurate criticality ratings. Why is this useful for PM Optimization? It’s one of the easiest ways to prioritize maintenance. Critical equipment requires a lot more attention due to the impact on production and safety if it fails. Criticality ratings are a good place to start for the prioritization of condition monitoring, and reliability centered maintenance.

Step 3 to PM Optimization:  Start Somewhere

There’s no right place to start when it comes to optimizing maintenance. Everyone does this differently, but there are some best practices. A good place to start would be to compare your PMs to vendor recommended maintenance
