I am Reliability Plant Engineer at a papermill where we have 6000+ physical assets and currently around 4200 PM templates which get released periodically. Lots of those templates get released every week/month/quarter and we usually get through around 18000 PPM jobs a year.
Our CMMS system has been used to pretty much print work orders since its inception. We have recently started planning strategys to optimise its potential but have no benchmark on what PPMs are important and roughly how many are needed for a plant of similar size.
How many PPMs vs Assets do you have?
What are your PPMs mostly comprised of? e.g inspections / lubrications etc
