PM Optimization - An EAM Best Practice Overview

September 18, 2013 | 10:00 - 11:00 am CST

Following Asset Criticality Ranking, a Preventive Maintenance Optimization (PMO) effort is the next step in achieving world-class reliability standards for a successful Enterprise Asset Management program. The purpose of PMO is to refine maintenance tasks and frequencies supporting a particular physical asset or assets. In simple terms, PMO is performing the right work, at the right frequency, the right way. Although there are a number of benefits to performing PMO, increasing your mean time between failure is one that will have a tremendous impact on the entire operation.

What You Will Learn:

  • The standard approach to performing PM Optimization
  • Utilizing Asset Criticality Ranking to drive your PM Optimization effort
  • The basic framework of a PM Optimization tool
  • Applying PM Optimization to the CMMS
  • Achievable Benefit Examples as a Result of PM Optimization
