Nihar Associates was asked to provide backfill support to our client’s Maintenance and Reliability team.

Nihar Associates provided a resource who was tasked with analysing historical maintenance data to identify underlying trends in equipment failure and maintenance expenditure, with the ultimate aim of identifying areas where maintenance practices could be made more cost-efficient.

Overall Nihar Associates:

  • Reviewed over 7 years worth of maintenance data in SAP PM to establish failure rates of specific equipment types.
  • Identified equipment that were contributing excessively to overall maintenance expenditure, and provided specific recommendations on how their maintenance could be made more cost-efficient.
  • Reviewed PAS data to identify bad actors, and provide recommendations on how to better capture data in the future to facilitate performing meaningful data analysis.
