Celebrating 25 years of AMIS

It was 25 years ago that a survey commissioned by the DTI into the UK’s maintenance management practices revealed that an astounding £1.8 billion of potential savings could be made through increased understanding of maintenance management by industry. This led to the introduction of AMIS, the DTI supported benchmarking service provided by MCP.  By 1997 the DTI estimated that the AMIS approach had potentially saved UK industry over £300 Million.

Now 25 years on MCP has conducted their 3-5 day AMIS maintenance assessments at over 1500 sites worldwide, and helped in over 4000 Operational Improvement Programmes in industries ranging from food and drink, chemicals, automotive to pharmaceuticals.

AMIS has continuously evolved to measure the effectiveness of an organisation’s asset management systems, maintenance approach, organisational structure, training and development, computerised maintenance management systems and operational processes……more 25 years of AMIS

Why you need MCP’s AMIS Maintenance Assessment

Reviewing your maintenance – MCP’s helpful check list will help you to ensure you are covering all aspects of maintenance and asset management activity. If you answer no to more than two of the questions you are missing an opportunity to reduce your maintenance costs and improve your plant performance, which typically results in lower cost of goods sold.
