Serving the Manufacturing Industries

The competitive nature of manufacturing has always resulted in a strong focus on cost of goods sold and Quality Management principles.

In today’s environment, to operate in either a Domestic and/or Global market, manufacturing must implement best practice asset management methodology coupled with the ability to embrace ISO 55001 methodology around cost, risk and performance improvement while providing an environment for emerging technologies such as AI (Artificial Intelligence), IOT (Internet of things) Predictive Analytics.

Covaris is a major Australian resource in developing world’s leading practice in an asset management for manufacturing and food industries. Covaris has been supporting these industries in the establishment of their assent management system for over 20 years focusing on getting the basics right such as:

  • Preventive Maintenance
  • Condition monitoring
  • Lubrication strategy

The delivery of these are supported through the implementation of:

  • Work Management improvement.
  • CMMS /EAMS Implementation
  • Outage Management
  • Asset Analytics and prognostic

The Covaris approach reflects a need to deliver improvement at the best possible price, while ensuring it has effectively no risk to any stakeholder since the work is well understood and resourced by competent people. As one of Australia’s leading researchers and practitioners in asset management, Covaris can deploy leading practice through the period of the improvement project in a way which the internal stakeholders can take up.

The Covaris approach is based on multiple projects successfully delivered across numerous companies in Australia and internationally covering, NZ, SE Asia, and Europe. The methodology used leverages the Covaris intellectual property developed in these projects and will lead to a substantial cost efficiency as achieved in the earlier projects.

Covaris deploys its unique mix of engineering know-how, data libraries of PM procedures for standard manufacturing and food industry assets and facility equipment, as well as utilising our proprietary technology (PMsure) to efficiently deliver the improvement project.

Augmentation of this work borrows from other Covaris technologies and service capabilities including asset criticality assessment, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and mobility solution for asset validation and condition assessment. Covaris has invested in trades-level training materials and courses with experienced Australian maintainers, to deliver high-quality adult education in the procedures and methods required to support the proposed preventive maintenance approach.
