We literally wrote the book on Maintenance Management! “Uptime“.
What we gain by maintaining our physical assets diligently is Uptime. If you want to achieve high performance from your physical assets, then talk to us. We don’t impose rigid “best practices” – you can always find a way to do better! We teach and help you use proven “successful practices” and tailor them to suit your situation.
We are the subject matter experts who the big firms call.
Reliability is the goal - maintenance is the method
Maintenance executes your reliability program and repairs what you allow to break down. Our “Uptime” successful practices increase technician wrench time and productivity while working safely and with the resources needed to do the job right, the first time, and every time.
Reliability depends on doing the right maintenance the right way.
- Inefficient maintenance program execution increases your costs
- Ineffective maintenance programs increase costs, lower revenues, and increase risks
The “Uptime Pyramid of Excellence” is the de-facto standard for how to manage maintenance and reliability, worldwide. It originated in our book, “Uptime -Strategies for Excellence in Maintenance Management” (1995, 2006, 2015). Its objective is simple: high asset performance leads to greater profitability, enhanced safety, and environmental performance.
“Uptime” is our framework. Each of its 10 inter-dependent components add value, and the effect is enhanced when you have them working together. Your operation is unique and we help you choose an optimal path to put in place the practices that do the most good for your business.
The (free) Maintenance and Reliability Maturity Assessment will show how well you are doing and whether it is worth taking a deeper look.
The “Uptime Self-Assessment” tool can be used to determine just how you rate when compared against world-leading practices and performance. Note that in order to avoid misinterpretation of questions in the assessment, you will need to have completed our online “Uptime” course before you can get access to this tool. That course is available in English, French, and Spanish.
The “Business Case Estimator” can be used for a single site operation to determine just what improvements in M&R will be worth to your business.
If you want an unbiased third-party assessment, then learn about our “Uptime (rapid) Value Assessment“. We identify opportunities, quick wins, and what making the improvements will be worth to your organization.
We also provide support throughout the implementation of your Uptime program. Our consultants have all been there and done it before – take advantage of our experience to avoid problems and achieve results quickly.
We have been doing this work for decades, we are confident in our ability to help you achieve the results you are looking for. We even guarantee our work.
