A major resource house identified an improvement project to identify, catalogue, assess, and prioritise production critical equipment for maintenance strategy development, data point verification, and accurately update records in SAP.
Commencing with a ‘rough-cut’ listing of critical equipment by functional location, further refinement was undertaken through the application of risk-based modelling to test and rank equipment.
Major scope items:
Identification of Functional Locations
Review of OEM manuals to extract critical material spares
Analysis of purchasing history
Desk audit to develop critical spares prioritisation
Key to the success of this project has been the field verification activities with relevant stakeholder groups and post-analysis review of mater data updates to ensure accuracy and minimise transposition errors
Development and validation of a ‘Critical Spares’ list
Linkage to materials associated with work order history
Warehousing reviewed, appropriately tagged, and linked to bills of materials and task lists
Preservation maintenance strategies for all critical spares developed and loaded into SAP
