GGR Associates assists companies improve their equipment’s reliability, reduce maintenance costs and maximise the performance and reliability of their plant, machinery and equipment. We help companies utilise approaches and strategies based on derivatives of Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) which we have developed. Our Head Office is in Canterbury, Kent, and we work across the UK and Ireland with a wide range of leading manufacturing and process companies.

Reliability Centred Maintenance and Plant Performance Improvement in the UK and Ireland

Using Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) or, more usually, our own developments that include Fast-track RCM, Review RCM and Generic RCM, we help you diagnose and tackle plant performance and equipment reliability issues.

Using RCM or, more usually, our own developments that include Fast-track RCM, Review RCM and Generic RCM, we can help you monitor plant performance, improve equipment reliability and reduce maintenance costs, as well as successfully diagnose and tackle issues, including operating procedures, to maximise performance.

Our Reliability Centred Maintenance approaches are used by leading manufacturers in a wide range of industries including food, drink, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, power generation, paper & packaging, electrical components, mineral processing, and chemicals & petrochemicals.

GGR also offers Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) for safety-critical applications in diverse areas such as lighthouses, nuclear plant and medical equipment.

Over the last 30 years, we have helped leading manufacturing companies in the above industries with Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) and successfully assisted them in improving equipment reliability, reducing maintenance costs and maximising plant performance.

The information we provide below covers the following areas:

Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) and its derivatives, the outlines of other approaches used to improve equipment reliability and maintenance and to monitor plant performance improvement. These include Lean Manufacturing, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and Quick Changeovers (SMED).

The importance of planning for success with Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) projects is to have clear objectives. Recognising the obstacles and issues that might come up, being realistic about resources and selecting the right approaches to improve plant performance are the key objectives.

Here are examples of plant performance improvement projects which give the benefits achieved in a wide range of industries through the use of Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) and its derivatives.

These examples indicate the support that GGR can provide at all stages of a project - initial planning, training in Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) and its derivatives, and implementation of the findings.

Plant Improvement & Equipment Performance

Poor maintenance can reduce equipment reliability, plant performance and productivity and can be responsible for disrupted production schedules, delays in deliveries, as well as poor product quality and safety issues. GGR uses approaches and strategies based on Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM), ensuring that your organisation continues to operate as efficiently and safely as possible. Our RCM approaches also suggest methods and maintenance procedures that will help improve and maximise plant performance and equipment reliability based on the equipment’s design and avoid systemic failures.

We show how to take your plant maintenance schedules to the next level. Based on your company’s needs and equipment, we will suggest the right Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) approach that will improve your equipment’s performance. We assess how to move beyond breakdown and reactive maintenance and focus on effective ways of gaining a better understanding of the equipment and the ways in which it can fail. Our approach involves the introduction of advanced predictive and condition monitoring techniques in improving plant performance. In short, we show how to put the systems, processes and structures in place, to improve the reliability of your equipment, maximise performance, reduce costs and make the most of your maintenance spend.

Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM), training and implementations that GGR offers will increase equipment reliability, improve productivity and performance, and reduce downtime in your plant. GGR’s staff have over 30 years of experience, and all the members of our team are Chartered Engineers. Our RCM-based programmes have assisted many companies in various industries across the UK and Ireland. Our Reliability Centred Maintenance processes aim to help you improve plant performance and identify significant failure modes and operating issues with root causes. We only offer the most modern and up to date solutions to plant and equipment maintenance and performance improvements in your industry.
