Facility Maintenance

Ensuring a sustainable efficiency of facilities

Due to global competition and the related cost pressure, companies with facility intensive production can only act economically if they further increase the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). This is only successful if repair and maintenance processes are aligned to production processes.

Integrated consulting approach considers processes, methods and systems

J&M supports companies of the manufacturing industry in sustainable optimisation of maintenance processes. Together with the client we analyse the current situation and develop a roadmap with suitable actions. Therefore the affected processes, methods and systems are being considered accordingly. J&M includes existing best practices of the asset management corresponding to service management, spare part management and tool management. This approach enables:

  • Reduction of costs in repair and maintenance
  • Optimisation of interaction between maintenance and production
  • Securing of facility availability, facility performance and quality of the facility output
  • Stabilisation and increase of facility efficiency

In this context it is essential to identify and implement facility-specific maintenance strategies like reactive, preventative and predictive maintenance with replacement strategies.

The road to optimal maintenance

The holistic approach of J&M combines the objectives of high facility availability and cost efficiency. We help our clients to achieve the goal of being "Best in Class" in five steps:

  1. Application of business process excellence approaches – a combination of LEAN and Six Sigma methods for an analysis and optimisation of existing processes and operations
  2. Standardisation of existing data structure (master and transaction data) as well as clarification of roles and responsibilities
  3. Development of target-oriented standards and indicators for all maintenance processes as well as their integration in existing ERP-Systems
  4. Development of a process-oriented organisational structure
  5. Development of self-regulating closed loops between maintenance and production for flexible responsiveness

The result is an optimised cost-performance-ratio due to improved facility efficiency.

Ensuring sustainable project success

In numerous projects in the manufacturing industry J&M has already improved facility efficiency by up to 45 % and reduced maintenance costs by up to 20 %. Responsiveness and therefore flexibility could be increased significantly due to clearly defined indicators and transparent data structures. The sustainable success of the improvements was ensured by trained employees on the client's side, who were included in the progress.

"With the jointly developed solution we will recognise shortages of tools earlier. The connection to operative data ensures the required quality of statements. During the project J&M has proved to be a competent and reliable partner who has contributed significantly to the success of the solution."
