Good maintenance practices are necessary to achieve financial objectives for revenue and margin – particularly for asset-intensive industries. The equipment must function properly to produce the product being sold to customers. Dreaded unplanned downtime interrupts production, causing lost revenue and can lead to safety or environmental incidents.
Regulatory and competitive pressures led Alliander to start a condition-based maintenance program to improve asset reliability and the sustainability of the company. Planning and executing repair work orders involves orchestrating technicians, parts, documentation, GIS location, and more. Effective and credible management of this maintenance requires a foundation of asset information with high data integrity and good governance.
