Continuous maintenance improvement in the pharmaceutical industry
In recent years manufacturing processes have been under scrutiny. Every production process is examined to see where it can be modernised, maximised and optimised to ensure highest possible yield at lowest possible cost.
ESS’s continuous maintenance improvement (CMI) service helps companies reduce cost and maintain efficiency. Effective asset management ensures that equipment is always available and reliable to meet the demands of the market place. CMI is especially useful in highly regulated industries such as the pharmaceutical industry.
Condition-based maintenance in the pharmaceutical industry
CBM ensures that maintenance is performed on the right equipment at the right time. The ESS CBM team will work with you to identify where CBM can add value to your maintenance programme. You can then either carry out the condition monitoring programme with your own staff or ESS can assist you in developing a CBM programme – either way you can be sure that you are not over-maintaining your critical equipment, because it is telling you when it needs to be maintained.
