Our experience has proven that the best results are obtained by employing a small number of experienced site personnel to work with our consultants on an as required basis to add ownership to the process and also to edify the site personnel in the process of developing maintenance plans.
This process has proven particularly effective at developing maintenance plans as a new plant or piece of equipment is being constructed. This allows the equipment to be started with a complete maintenance plan in place on day one of operation.
