AREAS OF EXPERTISE

Comprehensive Field Service Assessments

Through our Voice of the Customer (VOC) program, we engage our customers in a long-term strategic partnership, helping them to identify ongoing opportunities for cost savings, productivity improvement, enhanced efficiencies and strategies for reducing maintenance costs.

Our Approach:

Our industry experts conduct a three-day collaborative assessment, followed by a half day workshop and presentation of results. The process uncovers operational pain points and reliability gaps and benchmarks our client’s existing maintenance and asset management practices against industry best practices.  After a diagnosis and root cause analysis of any failures, we’ll propose a corrective action plan and then we’ll work together, to develop a long-term improvement road map, supported by innovative business models, business cases and ROI value propositions.

Mining for the Right Operational Process

Condition Monitoring

Get ahead of costly and untimely downtime with our condition monitoring on critical systems and predictive and preventative maintenance through borescope, onsite vibration analysis, pressure testing and troubleshooting, thermography, used oil analysis, reliability, availability & maintainability modelling, balancing and laser alignment.
