Monitoring & Continuous Improvement

Elevating Performance Through Continuous Monitoring and Improvement

Maintaining the success of a reliability program requires continuous effort to review and reassess what is working, what isn’t adding value, and what changes are required. Without continuous improvement, a reliability program can become stagnant and ineffective. Our experienced team is dedicated to helping you sustain reliability by supporting you with the monitoring and improvement of your program.

What is Monitoring and Continuous Improvement?

Effective reliability and maintenance programs require continuous monitoring, analysis and refinement to optimize asset performance and mitigate risks throughout the equipment lifecycle. Monitoring and continuous improvement involves a variety of activities, including setting and tracking Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), troubleshooting poor equipment performance, investigating failures, and optimization of maintenance strategies.

What Do Our Monitoring and Continuous Improvement Services Include?

  • KPI Definition & Dashboard Development: KPIs help you monitor reliability program effectiveness and identify areas of improvement. We help you define the appropriate KPIs and support the development of dashboards to track and visualize these metrics,  providing insights into asset performance.
  • Root Cause Analysis (RCA): We help conduct RCAs to determine the fundamental cause or causes behind a specific problem or failure and identify and implement actionable solutions to prevent recurrence. Learn more about our RCA Services.
  • Machinery Analysis: Our experts utilize advanced techniques and tools to assess the condition and performance of machinery, identifying areas for improvement and optimization. Learn more about Machinery Analysis. 
  • Bad Actor Analysis & Abatement Plans: Bad Actors are assets that are associated with frequent failures and elevated maintenance costs. We help you identify bad actors and develop action plans to address root causes and improve reliability.
  • Preventative Maintenance Optimization (PMO): Using your historical data, KPI trends, RCA findings, and industry benchmarks, our experts evaluate and optimize your preventative maintenance strategies.
