Focused and in-depth assessment of the preventive maturity of a maintenance function within all industries of any size in particular tailored for those that have manufacturing sites with automatised or semi – automatised production lines. The evaluation provides a targeted diagnostic against world best practices in preventive maintenance, looking at:

  • Policy by equipment
  • Preventive analysis
  • Maintenance Types

The assessment provides multi-level analysis on several axis: by individual or consolidated area of best practice, by organisation dimension (geographical location, department, production area, hierarchical level or any other dimension depending on your organisation), by evaluator, by action drivers (Wevalgo model), by Preventative Maturity

The results are provided in a concise and detailed (if option selected) report with multiple graphs and allowing you to clearly identify areas of improvement as well as perform internal or even external* benchmarks 

Scope and industries

This service is tailored for:

  • all industries that have manufacturing sites with automatized or semi – automatized production lines; this include manufactured products and processed products.
  • companies with one or several production sites
  • focused on assessing the level of maturity of the preventive maintenance

Who For

Company Production or maintenance senior manager, Production site manager, Production manager, Maintenance manager, internal consultants (e.g. continuous improvement team) or external consultants


More than 40 best practices evaluations, focused on preventive maintenance structured in 3 categories and 8 areas, enabling to identify strengths and improvement opportunities in a detailed and a consolidated view

  • Identification of strengths and improvement opportunities according to a WeValGo organisational model enabling to define improvement actions along consistent drivers (strategy and assets, organisation and governance, Leadership and people, process and rules, effective implementation)
  • Evaluation according to an Integrated Preventive Maturity model, that is not only evaluating the practices directly linked to the Maintenance policy, but all the categories and areas of maintenance
  • Normative questions with precise and auditable criteria (check with evaluated organisation data) enabling objective evaluation
  • Ability to create own organisation dimension (functional, geographical, hierarchical, or even particular organisational entity) enabling to compare evaluations:
    • of the same system (the practices, tools, organisation set up) used by or applied to different people
    • of different systems used in the various organisational areas or units of the evaluated organisation (e.g. different geographical sites)
  • Evaluations can be kept anonymous

How long does it take?

Since it is a focused assessment, it takes around 45 – 90 mins by evaluator to fill all the questions in a meaningful way. The questionnaire can be recorded and answered in several sessions

Result report

The result report is accessible once the evaluations are completed and contains graphical and text results. There are two options defining the level of analysis details displayed in the report.
Summary analysis: 
  • Answers by question with average performance for scored questions
  • Overall result scoring displayed in a chart
  • Analysis of the results difference between the top level questionnaire categories
  • Comments by evaluator
Detailed analysis:
  • Detailed answers by participant
  • Answers by question with average performance for scored questions
  • Answers by question and by participant with performance by participant for scored questions
  • Heatmap of the results, with category and subcategory performance levels

Wevalgo Preventive Maintenance In Focus Model


A model built on practical experience of preventive maintenance best practices

As with all Wevalgo off the shelf services, this model is built on the extensive management consulting experience of international Maintenance practices; each of its best practice has been observed in real conditions.

More than 40 best practices in a structured model

The model is structured in three categories and eight areas, each area includes 3 – 10 detailed best practices; this structure enables to identify strengths and improvement opportunities at different levels, from a high level and holistic view to a detailed view. It looks in depth at the preventive practices in place in the organisation compared to world class practices across multiple sites and/or others in the same industries and other industries.
  • Total productive maintenance: definition and communication of the principles, shared objectives, KPIs and collaboration between production and maintenance, autonomous maintenance...
  • Planned maintenance: systematic schedule, operations data management and storage
  • Predictive maintenance: operations triggers,  operations data management and storage, usage of mathematical models, usage of Articial Intelligence
  • Reliability programme: Reliability centered maintenance, Reliability programme in place, Experience in Reliability management, Reliability programme foundations
  • Equipment critical analysis: Equipment criticality list, Criticality analysis process, Quick analysis process, cross functional teams, statistics usage (FMEA, MTBF, MTTR...), Impact analysis
  • Root cause analysis: historical data analysis, level of training and competences, specific roor cause analysis actions, methodologies, improvement plans, cross functional teams
  • Maintenance policy definition: definition and update process, inputs, multi-site policy, definition level of content
  • Maintenance policy application: knowledge of the policy, proportion of equipments with a formal policy, effective usage and update

Normative questions

For each best practice, the question is very precise and the answers choices are almost systematically normed to facilitate the evaluation and mostly to avoid subjectivity

For example, some evaluations use a norm derived from CMMI; for others we have defined specific norms.

According to the practices, evaluation criteria used are, for example:

  • formalisation and detailed level,
  • quality and scope coverage,
  • people ownership and effective usage level,
  • roles and responsibilities clarity.



Integrated Preventive Maturity Model

We have built a model to assess where is your maintenance in the journey that goes from being organised to be predictive in four stages as described below


Description of the stage


The maintenance has defined processes and methodologies and applies mostly a corrective type of maintenance

Plan and coordinate

There is a defined strategy and maintenance policy per type of equipment, with planned Preventative maintenance and with Total productive maintenance principles partially implemented.

Maintenance uses planning tools and conducts some improvement plans including reliability actions

There is a good coordination with other functions

Analyse and prevent

Key Performance indicators are used to steer maintenance organisation.

There is a strong usage of data analysis (equipment performance analysis and failure root cause) to define equipment criticality, condition-based maintenance, reliability programmes


There is a strong usage of statistical data analysis and mathematical modelling; artificial intelligence starts to be introduced.


In most maintenance maturity model, there is an evaluation of how preventative or predictive is the maintenance organisation; but it is in often limited to the maintenance policy area.

The additional value of our model is it is integrated with each maintenance area : each maintenance area is assessed with criteria belonging to this model as pictured below (strategy area example ).

 Integrated Preventive Maturity Model


Wevalgo organisation performance drivers model

In the detailed results report each practice is linked to one of the Organisation model dimension so that the improvement drivers are also defined along these dimensions.
That enables to have even clearer and more actionable drivers to facilitate the improvement action plan definition.
The dimensions are:

  • Leadership & People: leadership capabilities, competences, social climate and value,
  • Strategy & assets: organisation strategy, technology, tangible and intangible assets,
  • Organisation: organisational structure, roles and responsibilities,
  • Steering: decision making, actions and performance indicators management,
  • Process: process, operating procedures and rules definition,
  • Tools: decision making tools, process support tools, software applications,
  • Implementation: effective implementation of strategy, organisation, steering, processes and tools,
