Planned Maintenance and Scheduling Optimization

Project Goal

To reduce the amount of planned maintenance (PM) in the Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), to ensure that any unnecessary maintenance was removed, and remaining planned maintenance was planned, levelled and scheduled efficiently.

What we did

Add Energy benchmarked the scheduled planned maintenance (PM) against existing PM data from a similar asset type to identify areas where PM’s could be removed from the maintenance schedule.

Add Energy’s senior consultants also “routed” the planned maintenance and scheduled the work orders to be executed per location, discipline, etc.

In doing this, Add Energy were able to reduce the amount of PM’s and associated man hours through smarter utilization of resources, time and logistics.



Work Order Optimisation

Suppression and replacement of PM work orders for overlapping maintenance can reduce:

4,435 Work Orders = 5,476 Hours
Giving a total cost saving of $609,134.00

PM Frequency Optimisation

Old Frequency
New Frequency
PM's Affected Work Order Reduction
(Over 5 Years)
1 24 3 174
3 12 22 330
3 48 7 133
6 12 316 1,580
6 24 4 32
6 48 226 2,034
12 48 1072 4,288

  • 1,500 fewer work orders will be generated by nesting 112 Jobs
  • 8,571 total work orders can be reduced over 5 years if the frequency optimisation recommendations are implemented
