Manufacturers require a centralised view on all its equipment and assets in order to enable capabilities such as RCM and TCM to maximise uptime and productivity. There is potential along the manufacturing process to reduce inventory redundancies, wastage in areas of MRO, and maximise utility of the different skill-sets among engineers, all of which are factors directly affecting the OEE of the manufacturing process.
The GWG Equipment Maintenance System (hereinafter referred to as GWG) provides a full range of maintenance process support to enable capabilities such as Total Productive Maintenance(TPM), Total Life Cycle Management, and Failure Mode and Effect Analysis(FMEA). GWG focuses on plant maintenance & equipment operating status management, providing generic information on functional location, equipment, parts, FMEA records, etc. GWG is designed to integrate various maintenance processes and is able to support business analysis functions on its database. GWG supports Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) on equipment management & plant maintenance, enabling Lean Manufacturing in the organisation. The consultancy service helps to improve their equipment performance towards achieving zero accidents, zero downtime, zero speed loss, and zero scrapes. GWG fundamentally integrates with machine measuring tools to record all failures, incidents, instances of maintenance, status checks, and other related information on time. GWG can be deployed either locally in a centralised system or as a SAAS tool.
