The initial pilot program began at CPC’s California and Hendersonville plants with a goal of rolling it out across all US locations. Within a month, assets, work order templates, work request templates, and reports were accessible through the system. Over 150 PM tasks were defined and applied to related assets. Lassonde Pappas utilized the system to develop accurate bills of materials, set inventory reorder levels and define inventory reports that would hold contractors accountable for inventory and help drive down inventory carrying costs. Sharing inventory between plants (critical spares, in particular) will allow inventory levels to be lower without impacting uptime. Several different work order types were established for planned and unplanned work including corrective work identified during preventive maintenance checks (CmPm).
Emergency requests are auto-approved and set to a high priority. They have established a process of post-analyzing each repair and then optimizing their PM procedures moving toward a world-class goal of 80% planned maintenance and 96% uptime. The scheduling feature allows CPC to maximize productivity and measure actual performance against standards.
