Defining the Optimal
Maintenance Strategy

Designing the optimal maintenance strategy for facilities is seen as one of the best ways to improve productivity, safety and equipment downtime, as well as reduce total cost of operations. U.S facility and production owners lose over $647 billion* every year due to equipment downtime, which then carriers over to loss of productivity, bottom-line impact to the company and potential customer satisfaction impact.

Several factors need to be considered when developing an effective maintenance strategy:

  1. Understanding the mission of the facility.
  2. Understanding the criticality and condition of equipment, systems and assets that support the mission of the facility.
  3. Prioritizing the equipment, systems and assets, based upon business disruption cost and cost to repair or replace the asset.
  4. Systematically applying preventative, predictive or proactive maintenance strategies to each asset.
  5. Monitoring asset condition and performance based upon manufacture recommendations and ASHRAE Asset Life Cycle.

There are several benefits to implementing an optimal strategy, including:

  1. Reduced or eliminated unplanned downtime (unplanned failures cost 5x’s more than planned repairs)
  2. Reduced operating costs —up to 25%
  3. Improved operational and employee productivity
  4. The ability to be more strategic with capital budgets
  5. Reduced energy consumption
  6. Improved customer satisfaction levels

Aligning Facility Asset
Management Playbook with Organizational Goals

The key to an effective playbook is understanding the mission of the business and the assets that support that mission.

To do that, we first have to understand the equipment, assets and systems that enable the facility to operate effectively. Our second priority is to align the maintenance plan with the capital plan. When these two plans are aligned, it enables the Asset Management Lifecycle Program to create opportunities for clients to make more informed decisions regarding four facility budget categories:

  • Capital Budget
  • Maintenance & Operations Budget
  • Repair Budget
  • Energy Budget

By leveraging the various elements of the above plans and budgets, facility and financial leaders can expect to optimize their budgets and improve the overall asset lifecycle, which will reduce maintenance and operations costs while optimizing the capital budget.
