Supply Chain & Operations Maintenance
Maintenance costs represent a significant part of operational costs - the more capital intensive the industry is, the higher the ratio of direct maintenance costs to total operating costs.
Maintenance management is a key lever in all industries in order to improve business performance.
Most industries have improvement opportunities in order to improve their operative income through long term maintenance initiatives.
How BearingPoint brings value
BearingPoint can help organisations achieve maintenance excellence by leveraging different issues.
Reliability is the key to maintenance:
Equipment reliability impacts in commercial responsiveness, as soon as the expected standard of equipment availability is not respected. Equipment knowledge must be leveraged within the company in order to determine the right maintenance strategy to apply.
Flexibility is needed, in order to adapt to demand volatility:
As production cadences vary, maintenance plans may change. Production activity peaks should be well anticipated in order to optimize assets utilisation. Communication between manufacturing and maintenance ensures the synchronisation of ‘planned’ events and the definition of rules for dealing with ‘unplanned’ events.
There are conflicting goals between engineering, production, purchasing and maintenance performance:
In all asset life cycle phases, and more specifically during design phase, involved departments must be present, active and share objectives. Equipment complexity and technology also impact on the ability and strategic choice of the company either to maintain itself or to outsource.
Maintenance is perceived as an added-value service within the company:
… and not only as a cost center. Ensuring the expected standards of equipment availability is a real added value. This involves more professionalisation of maintenance, and for example, implication of production within first level operations.
Compliance with environmental regulations is a must:
Maintenance must support the safe, reliable and economic performance of plants, by providing the results and the documentation to adhere to comply to regulatory requirements.
