Balance risk, cost, and performance through optimized and justified maintenance plans.

With cost constraints and challenges in justifying preventive maintenance activities, the pressure of managing risk and responding to any unplanned equipment outages is real. What’s required is a method to implement strategic changes to drive improvement and regain control while fighting the current fires and emerging work caused by the existing environment?


Are you experiencing any of these problems?

  • Escalating pressure on the cost to maintain assets
  • An aging asset base yet increasing pressure on performance
  • Unexpected major outages or high unavailability
  • Difficulty in justifying maintenance budgets or asset replacement
  • Challenges in using real data to drive decisions
  • Difficulty in implementing cost-effectiveness improvements

ARMS Reliability’s extensive industry experience, structured improvement processes, diverse consulting team, and partnering approach allows you to gain immediate traction on improvement, reign in costs and understand the areas of risk to target first. We implement structured processes that deliver rapid results that continue to drive value on an ongoing basis, ensuring that you have the best asset maintenance strategies deployed to all assets, at all times.

How ARMS Reliability Helps

Build Reliability into Design

RAMS studies conducted in the early phases of the Front-end Engineering Design (FEED) process enables you to verify design decisions, including redundancy levels and equipment type selection, identify critical reliability issues, and assess the impact of maintenance outages on production availability and capacity.

Improve Performance

Ensure optimal whole of life asset strategies are deployed to all your assets, identify bottlenecks, assess shutdown intervals and establish how to extend them.

Forecast expected levels of system availability and production levels, and cost / resource requirements to maintain equipment, as well as high risk areas and items.

Manage Risk

Identify areas of risk proactively by developing insight into the disparity between what’s getting executed and approved asset strategies. Assess risk of high severity, low likelihood events and determine appropriate mitigation strategies.
