Detailed description
How to use


The model is structured in three categories and eight areas, each area includes 3 – 10 detailed best practices; this structure enables to identify preventive maintenance performance at a high level and holistic view and at a detailed level. 

Two uses are possible:

  • learn preventive maintenance management best practices
  • assess preventive maintenance practices against world performers thanks to the online questionnaire functionality

The best practices are structured in the Wevalgo Preventive Maintenance Model

maintenance preventive model

Brief description of the best practices, categories and areas

Maintenance types
  • 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

Policy by equipment
  • 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

Example of usage for evaluation

Get a in-depth and detail assessment of your preventive maintenance management and practices to:

  • precisely understand preventive maintenance management strengths and weaknesses through quantified data allowing internal and even external comparisons
  • define new production preventive maintenance management ways of working, trainings, or other improvement actions
  • define targeted areas to monitor closely on preventive maintenance management
  • easily compare improvements and progress at different points in time

Specific analyses when used for evaluation

An assessment against best practices

  • Each question is an assessment of a practice against the best practice identified by our experts
  • The result allows immediate visualization with a score from 0 to 100, 100 being the best practice score; this regardless of the question format

    • A normative evaluation

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

      Some evaluations use a standard derived from the CMMI, others use a specific Wevalgo standard. Depending on practice, the evaluation criteria used are, for example:

      • quality and completeness of application
      • clarity of roles and responsibilities
      • ownership by people and effective level of use
      • formalisation and level of detail

        • A synthetic and detailed structured evaluation

          • The evaluation model is structured in a 'Pyramidal' way to provide both a synthetic and detailed analysis
          • There are four levels of consolidation; individual practice (question), sub-category, category, general total

            • Integrated Maintenance Preventive Maturity Model

              We have built a model to assessment 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 model

              Wevalgo organisational modelThe evaluation defines the actionable drivers for the identified improvements enabling concret action plan definition:

              • Leadership & People: leadership capabilities, competences, social climate and values
              • 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

Key steps

The best practices are accessible directly after purchase. In case of usage to evaluate the practices the following steps apply

  1. The service manager* can directly carry out an evaluation by answering the questionnaire (optional); steps 2 to 4 are optional depending on whether he/she wishes to invite other participants to carry out the evaluation
    • If he/she wishes to invite other participants to conduct the evaluation, he/she proceeds to steps 2 to 5
    • Otherwise he/she goes directly to step 5 of viewing the results
    • He/she can still do his evaluation after the participants if he did not do it at the beginning
  2. Customisation of the service to the organisation by the service manager*
    • Service name, title and introduction for the participants invited
    • Selection of participants to the service
    • Definition of dimension to enable analysis by organisation dimension (optional)
    • Selection of anonymity option
