CMMS solution for mining, quarrying and civil engineering industries
The availability and reliability of machinery and equipment are vital for companies in the excavation, quarries, and civil engineering sectors. Equipping yourself with a CMMS is a must nowadays.
Maintenance issues for excavation, quarries, and civil engineering companies
Companies operating in these industries are subject to very specific problems that the maintenance team must take into account.
Sometimes, mines and worksites are very remote, and access to human and material resources is complicated. This characteristic leads to problems with:
- long response times due to the availability of parts. The supply time is often very long,
- access to documentation from the field of the maintenance site;
- personnel safety due to maintenance occurring in the middle of production;
- legal obligations with the PGI (Periodic General Inspection);
- substantial financial commitments due to the fixed nature of costs generated by the rental of a piece of equipment;
- performance: hostile environment can cause a recurrence of breakdowns.
Both the mining industry and civil engineering have to operate with highly specialized and costly machinery and equipment.
As soon as a piece of machinery breaks down, you find yourself stuck and paralyzed with your work. The only way out is to repair the machine.
The environment can be particularly hostile, in which case parts and machines wear out much more quickly. As a result, they need very regular maintenance and a preventive maintenance plan.
Keeping the quarry and mining equipment fleet in good working order is essential for the continuation of the activity.
A major challenge for the maintenance team is obtaining spare parts.
The financial issues impact mostly civil engineering firms, but companies in the extraction sector may also be affected.
In civil engineering, profitability is key as projects are often carried out following calls for tender. Contractors are chosen on their portfolio, which also includes financial elements. Indeed, the costs must be in perfect adequacy with the conditions defined at the time of the signature of the contract.
In case of non-compliance with deadlines, financial penalties per day of late delivery occur.
Consequently, civil engineering companies must constantly ensure the profitability of their projects.
Since 2004, handling machines and equipment have been subject to a mandatory periodic inspection. The Periodic General Inspection (or PGI), carried out every 6 to 12 months, verifies assets’ conformity and anticipates any risk for the user. An inspection report details the operation of the equipment, the anomalies identified, and the potential causes for failure.
The maintenance team plays an essential role in keeping these machines in good working order. A preventive maintenance plan must be put in place to avoid problems. Checks are carried out on :
- oil with oil changes ;
- changing the various filters (for oil, fuel, air, etc.);
- mechanical and engine overhaul
