Maintenance Strategy Development & Optimisation

Our team has built extensive experience in maintenance strategy development and optimisation for a variety of physical assets which has allowed us implement robust and cost-effective maintenance plans through our branded process and cutting-edge tools. SAE JA1011, MSG-3, MIL-STD-2173(AS), and ISO 14224 are some standards supported by our proprietary framework.

Ensuring maintenance plans are suitable for current operational and environmental requirements is vital through ongoing strategy optimisation. This proactive approach reduces costly equipment failures, unplanned downtime, and safety incidents.

Optimal can help your organisation unlock value through:

Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) which embeds an FMECA (Failure Mode, Effect, and Criticality Analysis) is a thorough, proven, and widely accepted approach for the development and optimisation of maintenance strategies. The methodology highlights failure modes and their effects and provides justification for selecting maintenance tasks.

  • Work Order Improvements and Frequency Optimisation
  • Work Packaging, Routing, and Nesting
  • Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) Studies
  • Failure Mode, Effect and Criticality Analysis (FMECA)
  • Asset Vulnerability Assessment
  • Critical Spares Analysis
  • Root Cause Analysis
  • Risk Based Inspection (RBI) Optimisation (Compliance to API standards)
  • Asset Lifecycle Planning & Optimisation
Precision Maintenance

This is key to “Defect Elimination” in preventing the early onset of failure by paying precise attention to aspects such as lubrication, alignment, balance and fixtures. It sits within developing the right culture within the Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) function. The stronger the culture, the less prescriptive process needed. The right culture seeks to prevent equipment failures at source.
