INCREASING O.E.E. AND COST EFFICIENCY

Downtime is the enemy of profit. Disruptions and plant production shutdowns immediately affect your company’s operating results. That is why maintenance – especially in times of advanced automation and networking – is becoming more and more of a strategic success factor. Depending on the plant intensity and industry, today up to 60% of the complete production costs depend on the efficiency of the maintenance and asset Management.

Our projects increase the reliability, availability and process stability of your machinery and decrease the maintenance costs. This can be proven by demonstrable outcomes from the last ten years at more than 200 production locations. Make sure to also profit from our successful best practice methods as well as our company’s pioneering role within all plant-intensive industries.

VALUE-ORIENTED MANTENANCE

The main goal of value-oriented maintenance is excellent, stable processes. Maintenance performance is the indicator of how efficiently and profitably a company deals with the plant and machinery capital it is using. Therefore, maintenance is much more than just a cost factor or service provider.

Value-oriented maintenance

  • encompasses economic maintenance strategies on a component level and an integrated order management with optimal capacity and scheduling,
  • relies on targeted insourcing and outsourcing as well as replacement parts and contractor management,
  • increases the effectiveness through operator involvement,
  • provides tools for an efficient turnaround and shutdown management,
  • builds on informative key data and visualization
  • and integrates innovative concepts such as Maintenance 4.0 with the modules predictive maintenance, mobile maintenance and asset innovation/life cycle costing.

As innovators and one of the leading consulting companies in the field of maintenance and asset management we use our project expertise to make sure that your industrial production is still profitable tomorrow. Typical improvements that our projects attain are increases in overall equipment effectiveness (O.E.E.) – an average increase of 23 percent – or the decrease in  maintenance costs rate – an average decrease of 15 percent.

ScoreTests

In order to define the fields of action for a systematic optimization of maintenance and asset management, ConMoto has developed an interactive ScoreTest method. These one-week, standardized test procedures analyze and evaluate processes, structures and key performance indicators. The test results are worked on by an interdisciplinary team made up of management and employees from the shop floor. The results provide a holistic view of the strengths and the weaknesses at hand. This company-specific efficiency profile is then compared with a best practice using an objective scoring method.

The MaintenanceScoreTest provides starting points to increase the plant effectiveness, decrease the disruption rates and improve planning. The plant planning capacity and the initial operation “as is” is systematically evaluated using the AssetInnovationScoreTest.

This comparison delivers reliable figures on the economic efficiency of investment projects whilst taking into account the life cycle costs of the machines and the plant units.

The O.E.E.+ScoreTest combines the analysis of the production system with a detailed evaluation of the maintenance organization and the effectiveness of the plant as a whole. The test procedure builds on the tried-and-tested ConMoto maturity models for production and maintenance. This method was especially developed for discrete manufacturing with a significant value-added share through plants and machines. As a result the O.E.E.+ScoreTest gets the best out of both worlds.

GETTING THE OPTIMUM FROM YOUR PLANT WITH ASSET INNOVATION

With asset innovation/life cycle costing you can increase the profitability of your business assets through optimal financial investment. Especially in industries that are very plant-intensive, our projects increase the corporate added value through innovative and proactive plant planning. Asset innovation ensures the systematic alignment of new machines and plant components to their life cycles and functionality.

Successful companies make use of methods such as risk-oriented and reliability-centered plant installation design, value engineering as well as integrated planning and stringent project management. Additionally, the innovative power of the the project engineers, should be used. A close and open interaction between the partners is the basis for this.

The early inclusion of all aspects within innovative asset management substantially decreases the overall costs of plant installations  throughout their life cycle. This can lead to savings of between 15 and 30 percent. This corresponds to a 1- to 2-fold sum of the initial purchasing costs if a long-term plant usage takes place.
