An Installed Base Evaluation can help you reduce costs by identifying and eliminating excess inventory, which can help improve Return on Net Assets (RONA), increase uptime by ensuring critical spares are on site to support production and maintenance, identify and mitigate risks associated with supporting legacy equipment, gain broader visibility into your plant assets. In collaboration with Rockwell Automation there are three steps to the process:
Step 1 – Field Collection:
On-site data is collected by a Field Service Professional. During a site visit, we work with you to
develop a systematic model for data collection, which can include a review of your complete electrical and mechanical installed base. We focus on the process and machines in place, providing analysis in the context of your most critical facility performance.
Step 2 – Processing:
Using customized software for analysis we determine plant lifecycle risks and overall Maintenance, Repair & Operations inventory status. To determine recommended inventory levels, we review your products installed, plant operating hours and product Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) data.
Step 3 – Delivery:
Using a consultative approach, we deliver the analysis to you, along with recommendations and work with you to develop an action plan. The reports detail what’s installed, what’s missing and what equipment is nearing the end of its critical life. Our presentation to you discusses solutions that are going to be most effective in helping you improve plant performance.
Your final analysis includes:
Easy-to-read reports, with red, yellow and green coding indicating the lifecycle status of all parts
Identification of critical spares, including excess, insufficient and inactive spares
