The Fourth Generation of Maintenance: Failure Elimination

Cost: Free

When: August 31, 2021, 11:00 am - 11:45 am CDT

Co-Presenter: Swain Smith

Failure elimination starts with precise information about the origin of problems, which components are failing, and why. While previous maintenance strategies could improve and better inform decision-making processes, a modern approach to failure elimination supercharges failure reporting and analysis.

In this webinar, we’ll define a true asset lifecycle philosophy in terms of equipment performance – what are the equipment performance expectations overall that sum up production requirements over time? We’ll also demonstrate how Problem–Failure-Cause codes work with your EAM/CMMS to provide maintenance with granular insights into equipment corrective maintenance activities.

Key Webinar Focus / Agenda:

  • The Business Case for the Fourth Generation of Maintenance
  • Best Practices in designing failure elimination processes, standards, and procedures
  • Failure Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action System (FRACAS)
  • Key metrics and performance management considerations
  • The importance of interoperability in Failure Elimination
  • Ensuring Maintenance has the information necessary to improve asset reliability
