Taking control of the maintenance functions of the organization, with the ability to move maintenance activities freely when acting in “crisis mode”, or following the established plan when working in “planning mode”.
Maximizing your equipment’s operational uptime in optimal operating conditions. This reduces unplanned downtime and the demand for corrective maintenance. Adding work efficiency through better planning of maintenance personnel.
LIMA allows you to control and reduce maintenance department costs. You will obtain important savings by avoiding costly repairs before they occur and improving the efficiency of routine maintenance tasks, in addition, since you do not stop paying the operators of your machines when they do not work, the prevention of stoppages also results in lower operating costs.
LIMA reminds you of the inspections and preventive maintenance tasks required by law. For example, many organizations have a legal obligation to perform regular maintenance on various types of equipment (elevators, firefighting systems, medical equipment, etc.). At that level, LIMA assures you that you will be notified when maintenance is required, and will continue to remind you until the work is actually done, keeping records that show that the maintenance was completed at the time. In this way, your organization is protected against lawsuits or other potential risks.
As a result of a design by engineers for engineers, LIMA Lean Maintenance offers the following benefits
Changing from a corrective or reactive strategy to a planned preventive maintenance environment results in the following improvements
Up to 400% reduction in equipment failure
The identification of the most recurring errors facilitates an improvement in maintenance practices.
A proactive, planned maintenance environment minimizes the cost of unplanned activities and optimizes resource utilization.
Reducing the volume of unplanned activities to a maximum of 20%, while experiencing an increase in planned work
The dedication to planned activities exceeds 80% of the occupation of resources.
And many more benefits that can be more or less easy to quantify
Optimise the purchase of maintenance materials and spare parts stock levels
Simplify interpersonal communication and provide a better organization to increase staff capacity and productivity
Monitoring of maintenance consumables, waste and shrinkage
Need the best-performing teams for future asset purchase decisions
Monitor energy use and efficiency of appliances, systems, lighting, …
Olivia MMI incorporates different types of Maintenance Work Orders (MTO). The preventive OTM, which are generated automatically by the manager, after programming periodic reviews of the equipment and the corrective OTM that on the contrary are generated manually by the user or supervisor once there has been a sudden failure or stop of the machine.
Preventive maintenance planning is based on the existence of a series of plans developed for each type of machine. These plans define the activities, the people carrying out the task, the consumption of materials and spare parts, the tools, the necessary instructions and the measurements to be carried out. From these plans the system generates a series of proposals with intervention dates for a period of time.
Preventive Maintenance Work Orders, therefore, are automatically generated from the Planning Sheets as a result of the choice of a particular Plan.
The intervention data entry is unique. Operators identify and report the time spent, the type of intervention and the materials consumed in the order. There are proposed fields for comments that can be used to explain causes, diagnosis of the intervention or defects to be corrected in subsequent interventions.
The frequency of the plan can depend on the time or counter of cycles or units produced by the machine. If the CTEP (Control of Execution Times in Plant) program is available, then the moment of intervention can be a function of the load of the running machine.
A maintenance plan can consist of different types of interventions, each at a different frequency. For the correct execution of the maintenance from each plan, valuable information can be added that allows the operators to set guidelines for action and precautions.
The Planning sheet proposes new OTM´s depending on the periodicity defined in the plan, the last intervention or the state of the counters. The user has the option of selecting the date horizon from-where he wants the system to perform the calculation.
The system proposes, as the planned start date, the result of the frequency calculation; as the start time, the start time of the shift; as the planned end date and time, the calculation with the planned duration time and the calendar. To calculate the start times of each activity, the definition of the critical path implicit in the definition of the activities in the plan is taken into account.
It is the task of the production planner to synchronize the planning of preventive interventions with maintenance, in order to avoid a possible bottleneck in production. Just as it is the task of the maintenance planner, manage resources to prevent possible interference with other activities.
The corrective OTM’s are generated manually by the supervisor from an easily accessible form.
Before creating a corrective order it is possible to consult the list of planned tasks and the load saturation for an operator. With this set of tools it is easy to reassign tasks to obtain a smoothing of the loads.
The maintenance operators inform the system of all the activities they carry out, as well as all the materials consumed in them. The cost of the activities is calculated according to the operator who performs the activity, the cost being the value of the resource for the time recorded. If it is the case of subcontracted personnel, a previous definition is made in the card of the operator.
In the case of consumptions, the system calculates the costs of materials, using the consumed product tab. These values can be modified manually if required.
You can display all the maintenance tasks to be performed per operator. These activities correspond to the activities of the planned and launched MTOs, not the completed ones.
At any time, the supervisor can modify the data of any line as required, as long as the MTO to which this line belongs is in a planned state.
Maintenance operators are identified in the system and have a work calendar for the assignment of shifts and public holidays.
Olivia MMI incorporates a very useful tool for those companies that wish to structure their assets, machines or installations at different levels. From any equipment that is defined, it is possible to visualize graphically the complete structure in all its levels.
The configuration and visualization is done from the same card of the equipment in a very simple way. As well as the consultation of its use.
Olivia MMI also has a demand sheet for calculating the needs of maintenance materials.
The operation is the same as in the planning sheet, the demand sheet will be filled with those products for which the need is greater than the availability, being the need the pending quantity in OTM plus the safety stock, and being the availability, the stocks plus the pending quantity to receive from purchases.
The user will also be able to enter the data manually if required.
Olivia MMI allows you to manage the maintenance of different entities such as: Resources, Fixed Assets or Machine Centres. From the same equipment file, the code of the Fixed Asset, Resource or Machine Centre to which it belongs is specified. This allows companies from different activity sectors to make use of the module without any previous prerequisite.
