Don’t leave the performance of your factory to chance. Operate with peace of mind and make some money with your unwanted parts.
Risk should be taken very seriously, and at CIMTEC it is. Our expert engineers have devised a Risk Assessment Program to assure that your machines run at optimal performance now and in the future.
The CIMTEC Automation Risk Assessment Program is designed to help you avoid downtime by accurately pinpointing and mitigating risks before unplanned downtime occurs. Through a careful analysis of your PLC’s unique performance requirements, equipment type, environmental conditions and other factors, we will evaluate your total system and provide a detailed plan to safeguard your operations. In the process, you’ll gain useful knowledge – and assurance – regarding your PLC’s condition, remaining life and options for maintaining peak performance for years to come.
The CIMTEC 3 step process will minimize costly downtime in your facility and assure optimal performance. We understand what you need, when you need it. Here is what you get when you sign-up for this valuable program:
Part 1: DISCOVERY
The process starts with a brief call to schedule the on-site technician’s trip to your facility. We’ll cover what will be needed by the tech when he arrives, and the general process steps involved.
A thorough evaluation of your facilities automation systems and spare parts inventory will be performed. We will identify specific system components and available backup parts, documenting their age, type, quantity and system application. We’ll examine your programming backup availability and storage process, capture critical factory environmental data, measure application load on each system, and review maintenance practices and other related issues that can impact up-time reliability.
Part 2: ASSESSMENT
Information gathered during the site visit will be analyzed for risk by our team of technical experts. The assessment takes place in several phases: First, automation equipment classes and components are analyzed against our in-house benchmark database on component life-cycles. Next, remaining life estimates for specific systems and parts are reviewed to establish future reliability of equipment for each of your critical production processes. After that, firmware levels, emergency parts access, equipment environment, and operational demands are all added to establish an overall picture of the nature, location and magnitude of risks to your operations.
Part 3: DELIVERY
After an in-depth analysis, the Automation Risk Assessment report for your facility is delivered in both hard copy and electronic versions. The assessment is designed to provide an easy to read, easy to explain overview of key risk considerations, with detailed analysis and back-up information to support conclusions.
