The AMIS Assessment has been used for 30 years to help organisations understand their asset maintenance performance on a consistent basis.
The AMIS Assessment will identify weaknesses in an organisation and when used regularly helps focus on the actions needed to make improvements in an operations’ performance.
The AMIS Journey impacts on many different aspects of an organisation’s operations to provide a logical step-by-step development approach. It can deliver Equipment Reliability, Equipment Performance and Availability, Business Processes, Organisation Structure and Development, Data, Document Management and Information Systems, Work Planning and Scheduling, Spare Parts and Inventory and Training & Skills Development.
Equipment Performance and Availability
Business Processes for Sustainability
Organisation Structure and Development
Compliance and Quality
Equipment Reliability drastically affects the three key elements of competitiveness — quality, cost and product lead time. Well-maintained machines hold tolerances better, help to reduce scrap and rework and raise part consistency and quality.
By increasing uptime and yields of good parts, Equipment Reliability can reduce capital requirements, thereby cutting total production costs. It also can shorten lead times by reducing downtime and the need for retooling.
A company’s bottom line is directly impacted by how consistently and efficiently its machinery performs the required tasks throughout the product creation process. Consequently, every measure must be taken to maximise the machinery’s output, if the company that relies on it is to not only survive but grow and prosper.
Poorly performing machinery can prove to be the Achilles’ heel of any company. Calculating the availability of machinery is one of the crucial considerations for ensuring a company’s performance.
Defining the key business processes that drive an organisation will be identified through The AMIS Assessment. A standard approach for developing processes, process maps and procedures is used to ensure consistency of approach and use to guarantee sustainability.
The AMIS Assessment will deliver analysis against which real decisions can be made. That is why it is used extensively across all industry sectors and in companies worldwide.
Organisational structure and development is a company’s ability to manage resources, such as employees, effectively to gain an advantage over competitors. The company’s organisational capabilities must focus on the business’s ability to meet customer demand.
The AMIS Journey helps to support and improve organisation capabilities by defining the appropriate organisation structure roles responsibilities and training needs.
MCP helps organisations optimise their product costs sustainably, thereby improving margins significantly. The unique combination of MCP’s methodological expertise and a deep technical understanding of complex products enables us to identify the right levers and make specific practical suggestions for cost optimisation.
Compliance and quality are crucial components of the maintenance process but, it is important to differentiate between the two. Quality is defined as products and services that deliver intended performance, while compliance is defined as meeting regulatory requirements.
The AMIS Journey helps focus and deliver the required quality and compliance requirements.
