The different aspects of maintaining operational conditions

The alliance between preventive planning, responsiveness and the capacity to anticipate failures ensures the reliability and durability of your equipment.

  • Repair and Overhaul: MOC encompasses meticulous repair and overhaul processes that go beyond simple failure correction. These operations aim to return equipment to optimal condition to ensure its reliability and optimal operation.
  • Spare parts management: MOC involves a precise management of spare parts, ensuring that critical components are available at the right time to minimize downtime. This requires careful planning and effective coordination with suppliers.
  • Modernization and Improvement: In addition to repair activities, maintenance in operational conditions can involve modernization and improvement initiatives. This enables incorporation of the latest technologies, improvement of performance, and can prolong the operational relevance of equipment.
  • Regulatory compliance: Maintenance in operational condition is subject to strict regulations and standards, in particular in sectors such as aeronautics. Complying with these regulations and standards is a key priority in guaranteeing the safety and reliability of the equipment overhauled.
  • Cost savings: Although MOC can require initial investments, it can result in savings in the long term by prolonging the service life of equipment and by avoiding costs associated with frequent equipment replacement.
  • Performance monitoring: MOC integrates performance monitoring systems to assess the effectiveness of maintenance operations. This includes the collection of data, the analysis of trends, and the continuous tweaking of processes to optimize results.
