On one project alone, the company saved $100,000 by having the right parts on hand and three months of downtime based on past experiences. Effective inventory management helps ensure equipment uptime, and decreases the lead time for critical spare parts. Inventory, as well as accessing reports and dashboards, enables the team to track usage and life expectancy of parts. This is critical, as uptime and PM closeout are key metrics for Pratt & Whitney.
By analyzing data from reports and dashboards, the company is no longer “going through the motions” of maintenance. Gallagher’s team is able to see how often work is being performed to explore process and efficiency problems, discuss issues with technicians and identify the root cause of downtime.
Pratt & Whitney achieved best-in-class performance for PM closeout percentage, and plants currently using eMaint serve as a model for future plants. With the control and visibility into intervals and frequency of failure, the team is able to consistently optimize PM schedules.
