Challenge

Creating and justifying a preventive maintenance strategy is a time-consuming and expensive process when a significant amount of equipment is involved. The customer needed a process to capture best-practices and recommendations for maintenance tasks and procedures based on years of real-world experience. The system needed to allow users to perform risk assessments due to modifications of the recommended maintenance strategies.

Solution

A maintenance planning framework was developed by Efficiency Lab as a web application that allows the customer to store all preventive maintenance plans and make updates through a controlled revision management process. Efficiency Lab worked closely with Subject Matter Experts to develop a risk assessment tool that informs the user of potential equipment failures due to modifications in the maintenance plan.

Outcome

The web application is a widely used resource adopted by the electric power industry to establish and justify maintenance plans. The solution continues to be supported by Efficiency Lab and benefits from regular updates and improvements based on real-world usage and feedback from users.
