Despite the best preventive maintenance programs, equipment components eventually need repair or replacement to keep equipment running at desired performance levels. Therefore, maintenance organizations rely upon Bills of Materials, or BOM’s, that identify components and parts for each equipment asset so they know what and from where to order – and what and where to stock them.
Consequently, an accurate and complete BOM is essential to effective and efficient maintenance. Infralogix will validate BOM’s for critical assets to ensure they are recorded in appropriate detail and at levels necessary to support maintenance, repair and replacement needs.
A typical BOM Validation effort involves the following:
Furthermore, proper BOM’s serve as the foundation for developing a spare parts strategy that cost effectively aligns a stocking plan with reliability goals and budget objectives.
