A standards-based approach
We offer a wide range of maintenance management services based on international standards and best practices, including Failure Mode Effect & Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) and Risk Based Maintenance (RBM).
Using our expertise, experience and in-house tools, we support you in assessing the present quality of your maintenance policy and program, identifying improvement options, and developing and implementing improvement programs with a well-chosen and risk-based mix of corrective, periodic, condition or risk-based maintenance activities. We can also specify the requirements for effective software support and guide your asset managers through the implementation. Furthermore we can deliver, install and implement a dedicated Computerised Maintenance Management System: Cascade.
