MCP’s AMIS (Asset Management Information System) methodology and benchmarking tool were developed in response to DTI’s (Department of Trade and Industry) request for a maintenance benchmarking methodology.
The original AMIS product is now over 30 years old and is still as relevant today as it was when first launched. In that time, it has spawned over 4,000 improvement programmes globally and our database of results lets us identify any gaps to best practice and benchmark you against other organisations within your industry sector.
The DTI estimated that the savings identified by AMIS in its first 10 years could have been as much as £300 million. Individual organisations have realised savings in excess of £20 million for a single site and as much as $400 million for global multinationals.
Today the opportunities for delivering savings from maintenance are just as great, whether you are in manufacturing, transport utilities within the facilities environment. The AMIS Assessment is recognised as the most cost-effective and value for money maintenance assessment and benchmarking service used worldwide by leading organisations.
The question is not can you afford to do it, rather, can you afford not to!
AMIS is the starting point for the AMIS Journey for business improvement in maintenance. MCP’s AMIS Assessment is a 3-5 day on-site assessment – depending on the size of your facility and the scope of the assessment. There is also a calculation of key performance measures and comparative scores which are provided along with potential benefits and action plan.
The AMIS process uses a two-part questionnaire and a cross-functional team who rate themselves against a series of statements of best practice. All responses can be supported by documentary evidence, which means a representative benchmark is always achieved and a clear improvement plan developed.
What you will obtain from the AMIS Assessment:
- Benchmarking scores comparing your site with others in the same sector
- Identified opportunities for improvement
- Quantified benefits from making improvements
- Action plan for moving forward on the AMIS Journey
- Ongoing support to implement changes
- Access to industry experts for advice and support
The AMIS benchmark works just as well for large multi-site organisations as it does for single site SMEs.
Benefits of assessing your maintenance:
- Increased labour utilisation
- Increased OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness)
- Reduced costs of maintenance
- Measured effectiveness of your Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS)
- Focused plan for improvement
- Identify the gap between best practice and your current performance
Benefits of benchmarking your maintenance:
- Access to data covering all industry sectors
- Comparison with your competitors in the same industry sector
- Benchmarks of current performance against a World-Class standard
- Indications of the potential financial improvements
“We have adopted the AMIS framework as the principle in which we deliver a consistent methodology across all our worldwide manufacturing operations to drive improvement in plant reliability and performance.”
“Firstly congratulations on achieving World Class, the two members of my team that attended the Masterclass really enjoyed the two days and came back brimming with information and enthusiastic about the journey that we are starting on after seeing the results that can be achieved from your site.”
