  2. KEY STATS Months of company research time saved Plants across Europe studied 6-8 4
  3. PROBLEM MaterialsCo. was struggling with increasing breakdowns at its factories, due to lack of consistent maintenance practices. In order to reduce this, they wanted to standardize the maintenance processes across all factories. They sought to understand existing maintenance practices and identify maintenance management solutions.
  4. APPROACH – PHASE I Mapping maintenance process to identify optimization opportunities Mapping the overall repair process of the 4 factories. There were identified issue areas within the process, categorized them as process or organizational issues, and listed the reasons for their presence. Next, the impact of key issues was identified on each individual factory site.
  5. APPROACH – PHASE II Scout new maintenance management software Analyzed different sources to develop a list of 41 maintenance management software providers and 12 were shortlisted. Demo sessions were conducted to understand the key features offered & UI. Finally, 5 of these solutions were selected for a further deep dive.
  6. APPROACH – PHASE III Analysis of CMMS requirements and ranking of new CMMS solutions Identified different CMMS in use across different factories and developed a list of key features. Capabilities of the solutions were evaluated with requirements, and were ranked according to support, maintenance process, their cost, and their user-friendliness.
  7. RESULT Sprintly team provided MaterialsCo. with a roadmap to achieve its maintenance process optimization goals and proposed a guideline for the management to choose the right CMMS solution. This project accelerated progress on MaterialsCo.’s maintenance optimization project by 6-8 months.
