Industrie, food & pharma
Installaties worden ouder, complexer en duurder. Ook in de procesindustrie, de voedingsmiddelenindustrie en in de farmaceutische industrie. Er worden hoge eisen gesteld aan deze installaties. Of het nu gaat om het veilig produceren van voedsel, om het opschroeven van de productie of om te besparen op onderhoud, het wordt steeds belangrijker om de bedrijfsmiddelen (assets) te managen.
Vakkennis wordt specifiek en schaars waardoor het uitbesteden van taken steeds vaker geen keus meer is, maar een noodzaak. Wet- en regelgeving en compliance, ofwel het voldoen aan de norm, vereisen een gedegen werkproces dat geborgd en getoetst moet zijn. Het sluiten van de PDCA-cirkel zorgt voor controle, vertrouwen en transparant handelen. Assetmanagement is de kapstok voor het duurzaam inrichten van het bedrijfsproces.
In the process industry, management and maintenance processes are increasingly seen as an essential part of good business operations. Optimizing these processes requires investments that yield noticeable results. Within the food industry and the pharmaceutical industry, everything revolves around the safety of the product and optimal production at minimal costs. This highly automated high-tech production environment requires optimal management and maintenance processes.
Asset management is increasingly playing an active role in achieving business objectives. Decisions on how to deploy assets, investment and depreciation policies, increased productivity standards and the management of all assets (existing and new) are an integral part of asset management.
Asset management helps to optimize management and maintenance processes in the process, food and pharmaceutical industries.
Companies where large quantities of hazardous substances are present can fall under the operation of the Major Accident Risks Decree 2015 (BRZO-2015). These companies range from simple storage companies to complex chemical process industries, such as refineries. If their assets or organization are not in order, relatively large risks can arise in business operations. Working according to the principles of asset management helps. After all, ensuring that the assets and organization meet the conditions for the stakeholders is the basis of asset management.

The position of a maintenance manager is becoming increasingly important for the operating result. As a result, the maintenance department is increasingly playing a central role. Company values such as safety, compliance, environment and sustainability can be positively influenced by an optimal condition of the assets, the assets. But the condition of the assets is influenced by many factors, often beyond the reach of a maintenance organization. Design parameters, production, raw materials, information management and existing competencies are factors that influence this. Asset management is the latest framework that makes the connection between all facets aimed at the optimal use of assets. This indicates what an organization must have to permanently close the PDCA circle and especially on the connection between strategic, tactical and operational.
Trend 1: Do more with less money
The industry has been working for years to use their assets as optimally as possible. The maintenance organizations usually have sufficient knowledge of their assets. They can respond to changing patterns of a production department and a management. And they’ve become more and more creative because they can incur fewer and fewer costs. But what do you do when the rack is out? Or if investments need to be made? How are the consequences (risks) of a particular choice assessed? Is there enough data available and how is useful information made of it? Read the article about doing more with less money.
Trend 2: From maintenance engineering to reliability engineering
Many industries have been carrying out planned maintenance on their installations for years, usually based on methodologies such as FMECA and RCM. This was often done years ago, where the methods were carried out with a certain pragmatism and no updating took place. The implementation of this often lies with the maintenance engineer. Many of these maintenance engineers are active in work preparation and in the realization of modifications and maintenance. But is there enough time for the optimization of maintenance? Do you have sufficient competences for this? Do you have the right data? Read the article From maintenance to reliability engineering.
