Increasing O.E.E. and cost efficiency

Downtime eats into profit. Faults and system failures take an immediate toll on your operating results. That is why maintenance is a crucial factor in strategic success – especially in times of increased automation. Up to 60 percent of production costs are down to the efficiency of maintenance and asset management. We increase the reliability, availability and process stability of your machinery and reduce the maintenance costs by implementing fully integrated maintenance management.


Our maintenance projects advance preventive maintenance and increase the overall equipment effectiveness to minimize production downtime. ConMoto’s project results of the last 20 years at more than 250 production sites speak for themselves. Your company too can gain from our successful best practice methods and our pioneering role in digitization in all capital-intensive industries.


We enhance Overall Equipment Effectiveness (O.E.E.) by 5 to 20 percent – depending on the industry.


We reduce the maintenance cost rate by 7 to 28 percent.


We reduce spare parts inventories by 15 to 55 percent.


We reduce capital expenditure by 8 to 28 percent.

Top industry performance through value-oriented maintenance

The goal of value-oriented maintenance is first-rate and resilient production processes. Maintenance is much more than just a cost or a service. It is also a gauge of how much a company invests in its plant and equipment.

Value-oriented maintenance means:

  • Cost-effective maintenance strategies on a component level, and an integrated contract management to optimize capacity and scheduling
  • Targeted in- and outsourcing, replacement parts and contractor management
  • Increased effectiveness through operator involvement
  • Tools for efficient turnaround and downtime management
  • The use of key diagnostic data and visualizations
  • Innovative concepts such as Maintenance 4.0, which includes Predictive Maintenance, Mobile Maintenance and Asset Innovation/Lifecycle Costing

We are innovators and one of the leading consulting companies in the field of maintenance and asset management. We draw on years of expertise to ensure that the profitability of your business is sustainable. Typical improvements we have achieved are increases in overall equipment effectiveness (O.E.E.) by an average of 15 percent, and a decrease in the maintenance cost rate by an average of 20 percent.

ConMoto ScoreTests

To identify the areas that require action, ConMoto has devised an interactive ScoreTest. These one-week standardized tests evaluate processes, structures and key performance indicators. The test results are interpreted by an interdisciplinary team of management and shopfloor employees. The results offer a holistic view of a company’s strengths and the weaknesses, while a set of numerical scores allows the objective comparison of a company’s efficiency with best practice.

The MaintenanceScoreTest offers starting points to increase plant effectiveness, reduce disruption and improve planning. The Asset Innovation Score Test systematically evaluates your plant planning capacity against the initial operation as it stands. These tests generate reliable figures on the profitability of investment projects regarding the replacement or preservation, considering the life cycle costs of plant and equipment.

The O.E.E.+ScoreTest combines an analysis of the production system with a detailed evaluation of how maintenance is organized and the effectiveness of the plant as a whole. The ScoreTest builds on the long-established ConMoto Capability Maturity Model, a model specifically developed for discrete manufacturing. Plant and equipment add significant value to key areas in need of optimization and its implementation. Combining O.E.E. and the ConMoto ScoreTest offers the best of both data worlds.

Get the most from your plant with asset innovation

Asset innovation and life cycle costing deliver optimal financial investment and increased profitability of your assets. Our projects increase corporate value creation through innovative and proactive plant planning and are especially effective in industries that are plant-intensive. Asset innovation ensures that new machines and plant are in line with their life-cycle costs and functionality.

Successful companies deploy risk-oriented and reliability-focused plant design, value engineering, integrated planning, and rigorous project management. Also, key to their success are the innovative skills of project engineers and the open exchange of ideas between partners working in close cooperation.


The early inclusion of all aspects of innovative asset management hugely decreases overall costs across the life cycle: for procurement, maintenance, operation, downtime and waste disposal.

This can lead to savings of between 15 and 30 percent, equivalent to 1- to 2-times the initial purchasing costs for assets in long-term use.

In other words: assuming an initial plant value of 20 million euros and an average lifespan of 15 to 20 years, companies may save 1.6 to 2.1 million euros per year during the entire life cycle of a plant.
