Preventance goes well beyond reliability centered maintenance (RCM) alone providing a breakthrough in maintenance performance technology. Superseding old-school deficiencies of the 50-year-old RCM paradigm, expert information and knowledge are layered such that custom criticality level, operating context, business model, budget and objectives can quickly be modeled and refined. Preventance APM leverages the information in the ASL along with user economic inputs to aid in determining the most cost-effective maintenance strategy for any given component. The outcome is a simple and easily implemented strategy for improving operational uptime and reliability performance
Using content from the ASL (the world’s largest library of failure modes and preventive maintenance (PM) recommendations) Preventance APM analyzes preventive maintenance plans down to a task and interval level, based on the equipment type, its functional importance, and operating context (duty cycle and service conditions).
Results from Palo Verde Generating Station’s use of APT’s Preventance APM software, ASL, and our Value Based Maintenance methodology achieved significant reduction in O & M Labor Demand while achieving gains in Capacity.
