Maintpartner Value Element Maintenance Audit brings clarity to maintenance management


Operative models and milestones for production and maintenance are built up over the years. Changes in society and subsequent need of efficiency improvement in production demand efficiency also from maintenance operations. It may, however, be difficult to identify the key maintenance development activities that have the best impact on productivity improvement targets.

Maintenance audit executed by Maintpartner provides a clear and measured view of the current status of maintenance operations and identifies key development areas and potential. In addition, we benchmark the audit results to other sites in same and different industries.

Maintenance audit is conducted by Maintpartner's maintenance specialists who apply a standardized audit form. The audit is based on interviews and analysis of the available maintenance data.

Maintenance audit includes the following sections:
- main targets and challenges for production and maintenance
- metering, reporting and resourcing
- order-delivery process, planned maintenance, operative activities and failure repair
- spare parts and materials, procurement
- safety, quality and environment, IT systems
- maintenance costs

Maintpartner has carried out maintenance audits in various industries, leading to clear decision and actions plans. Maintpartner's Maintenance audit is a productized Value Elements service, which can be ordered as a separate service or it can be part of a larger maintenance package delivered by Maintpartner.
