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.
Alliander has deployed the SAP Master Data Governance, enterprise asset management extension by Utopia software. This provided a solid foundation of asset information for a broad condition-based maintenance (CBM) program. Alliander is now on a path to reduce unplanned downtime and improve uptime with lower maintenance costs.
