Consultancy to get to know the reliability of your project, process or product and support the decision-making process.

If your company needs to analyze reliability from a defined scope, but you don’t have the time or team prepared to carry out this activity, the Compass team of engineers is the solution.

Our consultancy will be based on one or more of the methodologies described below:

RAM Analysis Consulting (Reliability, Availability and Maintainability):

For the modeling, analysis and simulation of the reliability, maintainability, availability and productivity of process plants, products or systems, in various scenarios of interest.

Deliveries

• RBD model representing the reliability, maintainability, availability and productivity logic of the assets in the scope of the project.
• Simulation of the system presenting the following results (system and its assets):
>>> Reliability, maintainability and future availability
>>> Production capacity forecast
>>> Expected number of failures, repair times and operating times
>>> Maintenance cost forecast
>>> Most critical equipment (bad actors)
>>> Production flow analysis (throughput)
>>> Simulation of improvement scenarios
• RAM analysis delivered in BlockSim analysis software.
• Simulation for improvement scenarios.

Benefits

• Determining the reliability and future availability of the system.
• Inventory adjustments of spare items.
• OPEX and CAPEX cost reduction.
• Increased availability and productive capacity.

RCM Analysis Consulting (Reliability Centered Maintenance):

To develop an optimized maintenance strategy that will ensure the best performance with the lowest cost and within an acceptable risk.

Deliveries

• Reviewed and optimized procedures and plans.
• Reviewed hierarchy.
• Classification of failure modes and their financial, operational and safety impacts.
• Analytical maintenance plan, in spreadsheet format to be loaded in the CMMS, containing all the necessary information for the maintenance strategy.
• RCM analysis delivered in RCM++ analysis software.
• Final technical report contemplating the methodology used in the project, identified critical points and conclusions.

Benefits

• Optimization of the maintenance plans.
• Reduction of the total amount of maintenance plans.
• Average reduction of 50% of the maintenance activities based on time.
• Average increase of 30% of the maintenance activities based on the condition.
• Average reduction of 20% of the annual maintenance costs.

Spare Part Analysis Consulting (Spare Part Forecast):

To determine or adjust the optimal levels of spare items necessary for the continued and safe operation of your process, avoiding the lack or excess of materials.

Deliveries

• Optimized list of spare parts for each item analyzed, including maximum and minimum quantity and the respective probability of success.
• List in a spreadsheet, prepared to be loaded in the supply system of supplies.
• Final technical report contemplating the methodology used in the project, identified critical points and conclusions.

Benefits

• Increase of system availability by the precise definition of the right amount, at the right place and at the right time.
• Potential reduction of up to 50% of the current inventory of spare items.
• Short-term financial results.

LCC Analysis Consulting (Life Cycle Cost Analysis):

Life cycle cost analysis (LCC) is a process of economic assessment of the total cost of an asset. It is a methodology to determine the ideal moment to replace, overhaul or decommission the assets. Also used for capital investment programs.

Deliveries

• Asset life plan.
• Determining the economic life of the asset.
• Descriptive report with theoretical details and the metrics used in the analyses.

Benefits

• Increased availability and reduction of maintenance costs by accurately determining the asset’s economic life.
• Reduction of loss of profit by the correct definition of the asset’s economic life.

Consultancy in Failure Analysis Management

To ensure an effective registration process, failure analysis and the implementation of corrective and preventive actions. The process of failure management is a standard activity in companies, but this process usually doesn’t eliminate the root cause of the failure, generating a recurrence of the events that cause the system shutdown.

Deliveries

• Report pointing out the gaps found in the current failure management process.
• Optimized failure management procedure.
• Implementation of the new failure management process.

Benefits

• Reduction of failure recurrence.
• Reduction in the number of unforeseen occurrences.
• Increase in the system’s availability and productivity.
• Promotion of continuous improvement.
