Conducting a Site Audit for Maintenance Management

Having completed over 24 maintenance audits since 2004 using an objective maintenance systems auditing tool, we have highlighted to clients several key maintenance issues that are significant contributors to poor maintenance performance.

These in-turn contribute to high maintenance costs, unreliable plant and equipment and poor availability.

Key Maintenance Issues
  • Lack of maintenance direction
  • Lack of detailed planning
  • Lack of meaningful reports
  • Lack of formal maintenance business processes & procedures
  • Lack of clear position descriptions that support the business process
  • Lack of maintenance KPI’s (you can’t control what you don’t measure)
  • Poorly set up maintenance system
Key Maintenance Audit Steps
Identify the Issues
You can’t commence change unless you know what you need to change. We do this via our objective spider audit assessment.
Deliver Directional Focus
AME deliver a concise and informative report clearly outlining key issues, prioritised, together with recommendations that may improve the performance of your maintenance business. 
Provide a manageable program for change
Starting with high return areas, we provide you a program to follow to implement & monitor improvement

We have been using AME for the past year and a half for all our classified plant needs and have always found their service to be thorough and very helpful. They have always helped out with any questions I have had and have helped our site to become more aware of our itinerant plant requirements through their very informative awareness courses.
