SMDsystem (Strategic Maintenance Development) simplifies the development of maintenance strategies and the implementation of comprehensive maintenance plans that are focused on your business risk. It also allows you to refine these strategies and plans in a controlled manner based on feedback from the results of current maintenance activities, operational errors as well as on changes to your business environment.

We have created our system to simplify the process of developing and implementing a maintenance plan. The system has been developed around drag and drop or mouse click functionality. As a result of this we have found that the time required to develop a comprehensive plan has been halved. In addition to this the system can provide all of this information in standardised reports ready to be uploaded into your CMMS (such as Maximo or Infor).

The system allows you to develop detailed checklists for both simple and complex maintenance activities. The frequency and depth of these activities is based on the criticality of the equipment, with the criticality assessment process built into the system. All of these activities can be combined into maintenance routes, and the system will combine the individual equipment checklists into a comprehensive set of checklists for these routes. At the same time the system automatically calculates the annual planned maintenance workload per skill helping to identify the staffing complement required to maintain the system.

The system provides a pre-scheduling agent allowing you to schedule the work at the click of a mouse button. For simple routes the system displays a tick in each week the route is to be performed, while for complex routes the system will automatically calculate which checklists are required for a particular occurrence and place a tick in the appropriate box. We also know that due to production requirements some intrusive activities cannot be carried out during high demand periods, and by selecting a week that this is the case, all of these activities are rescheduled.
