Maintenance Library

Add Energy have a database of maintenance feed data that links through from the philosophy to equipment strategies to the job task. The maintenance strategies cover all major components that would be found in typical energy plants, these are built with reference to the Failure Mode Effect Analysis (FMEA) along with industry best practice.

Aim-Hi™

A cloud-based maintenance management tool that provides instantaneous intelligence around maintenance KPI’s and the asset’s planned maintenance regime. Visual dashboards enable users to quickly identify areas of underperformance and where opportunity for optimization, cost rationalization and resource maximization can be achieved.

Profi-C™

Profi-C™ is a modelling and benchmarking package which measures factors affecting productivity.

Look-C™

A historical planned and corrective maintenance analysis tool, that measures equipment performance through the analysis of failure and maintenance data. It identifies gaps in scheduled maintenance and equipment with high failure rates, which enables our team to highlight ineffective trends and areas where cost savings can be made.

AssetVoice™

An integrated software and hardware solution which has the capacity to monitor and track stocked and installed components through their lifecycle using IoT technologies. The tagged RFID hardware, combined with Add Energy’s Asset Voice™ cloud-based software service enables stakeholders to track assets anywhere, at any time.

My Take on Managing the Cost of Aging Assets

04 Aug 2020

My Take on Managing the Cost of Aging Assets

Managing operational expenditure is a challenge for any asset, but as the age of an asset increases, additional challenges are introduced, and the cost of operational expenditure typically rises. These additional costs are usually driven by equipment failure, obsolescence, and lack of sufficient maintenance.

To help manage the costs of aging assets, maintenance and operational stakeholders need to consider, and invest into proven initiatives that optimise ways of working, increase equipment reliability and assure safety integrity of the facility.

5 tips for preventing unplanned downtime

5 tips for preventing unplanned downtime

The biggest enemy of maintenance and reliability is unplanned downtime. While planned downtime is inevitable when managing a plant, unplanned downtime is often one of the largest challenges and expenses.

When production has to cease unexpectedly because of a broken part or safety issue, time needs to be urgently spent to identify the problem, fix it, and ensure there are no ancillary issues before restarting. This is highly disruptive and costly, and maintenance teams are therefore always striving to avoid unexpected failures or breakdowns.

5 indicators of an inefficient CMMS and how to overcome them

A computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) is a critical element to efficient maintenance management. It is used to help meet production demands, reduce OPEX costs, increase profits, and minimize risk of incidents. In particular, an effective CMMS can provide better management and control of:

How to save time and money whilst verifying assets and collecting key data

How to save time and money whilst verifying assets and collecting key data

After 15 years of working with companies to help build asset registers and develop maintenance management programs, our team has identified a trend of inaccurate and missing asset register data, which can cause significant issues for an operating facility. Without good quality and fully populated base data, assets run the risk of: 

  • Equipment failing due to no maintenance being assigned or executed 
  • Spare parts being unavailable due to no visibility on what is required 
  • No assurance that the integrity of the equipment is being managed, which could result in an incident

Add Energy’s Maintenance Engineer, Trent Cooper, has witnessed this issue first-hand. In this blog post, he outlines the importance of plugging data gaps in your asset register, the challenges associated with traditional data collection methods, as well as a new digital way to streamline data collection and verification from source.
