The Equipment Ranking Method
Equipment Criticality Analysis
Every Maintenance Organization must have a comprehensive equipment register ranked for criticality, this is an absolute requirement for an effective maintenance strategy. There are many ways a Maintenance Organization has attempted this with various levels of effectiveness, but major drawback of each of these attempts is stopping at the machine level. An effective maintenance strategy must be established at the component level. This is where the appropriate maintenance task is selected to reduce equipment downtime thus improving OEE.
An Equipment Criticality Analysis process expands traditional Equipment Ranking processes to include ranking individual components on critical equipment. This allows an Equipment Ranking Team to select an appropriate maintenance task for the component. When the ranking analysis is completed, and a comprehensive list of maintenance tasks have been identified including Predictive, Preventive, Failure Finding and Consequence Reduction Tasks.
