BI-Cycle is built to support a maintenance improvement process that has an excellent track record in various types of industries. BI-Cycle works together with certified maintenance consultants to implement and support this process.
The BI-Cycle improvement process is shown in the image below.
The BI-Cycle Improvement Process
A maintenance program/plan aims at a high level of plant availability and safety by means of cost-effective maintenance tasks. Over the years a wealth of experience data is generated in the form of work orders, failures, spare part usage, projects, process data, etc. Thorough analysis of this accumulated history will bring to light bad equipment, root causes, ineffective maintenance tasks and unnecessary costs, ultimately leading to decisions that change in the maintenance program.Improvement process support
BI-Cycle provides support in every step of the improvement cycle. It assists in
collecting and analyzing data as well as in making well-documented RCM based
improvement decisions. BI-Cycle provides
- An improvement process which yields tangible results
- A short implementation period and fast feedback of results
- A tremendous time saver for the maintenance department
Fredrik Holm, Maintenance engineer at Oskarshamn Nuclear Power Plant, Sweden:
BI-Cycle has shown us that we can use our maintenance history data in a far more effective way than we thought, both with easy trend analysis and ranking of equipment.
Improving our maintenance effectiveness is of key importance for OKG in order to meet existing and future demands to reduce maintenance costs, while keeping a high safety level and availability. Several RCM pilot studies with support of BI-Cycle have shown that BI-Cycle is a good complementary product for reaching our goals.
