This innovative approach converts capital expenditure into operational costs that are in the hands and control of the operational management.
  • Binmak Kwenza has two main broad categories of applications:
    • Asset Reliability systems
      • Binmak Hungwe: Asset Criticality
      • Binmak Chapungu: Asset Strategies & Plans Development
      • Binmak Rukodzi: RCA & Defect Elimination
      • Binmak Gondo: Focused Improvement
      • Binmak Njiva: Condition Monitoring
    • Asset Management systems
      • Binmak Motlodi: Asset Management Maturity Assessment
      • Binmak Hurudza: Production Flow
      • Binmak Njerere: Mobile Work Management

Asset Reliability Systems

  • Binmak Asset Reliability Systems are created to enable consistent asset reliability and asset performance. An asset is “reliable” when it is functioning as required within a set of specific operating conditions. Asset reliability means delivering on organisational objectives, stakeholder requirements, business requirements, and regulatory requirements.
  • Named after the most successful African Birds of Prey, these Binmak Kwenza applications that comprise the Binmak Reliability Suite are equally deadly in the hands of a focused Reliability Engineer.
    • Key Elements of the Reliability Suite include:
    • Asset Prioritisation on a Risk Based Approach
    • Addressing all asset related risks using FMEA
    • Eliminating all identified and recurring defects and failures
    • Relentless focus on rapid and continual improvement
    • Reliable assurance of current asset condition in real time.

Binmak Hungwe: Asset Criticality

The African Fish Eagle

  • The Binmak Hungwe Asset and System Criticality System enables organisations to rank systems and asset in order of priority based on their criticality. The process of determining asset criticality in a risk based approach.
  • ISO 31000:2009 – Risk Management – Principles and Guidelines defines risk as “the effect of uncertainty on objectives”. The risk assessment process starts by first identifying risk events. In turn, these risk events have two dimensions:
    • The consequence of an event
    • The likelihood of an event


  • The overall level of risk is determined by the combination of these dimensions, frequently visualised in a risk matrix. 
  • Determining equipment criticality is a prerequisite to determining the appropriate asset strategies for each asset.
  • Steps in determining asset criticality
    • Agree on risk matrix to be used
    • Create an asset register and asset hierarchy
    • Determine the consequence rating of each risk factor that impact the asset
    • For each risk factor determining the probability/Likelihood of failure/occurrence
    • The risk level of the asset is determined by the total consequence multiplied by the probability of occurrence
    • Based on the risk level the asset s are then categorized into High, Medium or Low criticality
  • For all High and Medium criticality assets, we then conduct a full FMEA to ensure that the assets remain at an acceptable level of risk.

Binmak Chapungu: Asset Strategies & Plans Development

The Bateleur Eagle

  • The Binmak Chapungu Asset Strategies & Plans Development system combined the powerfull capability of the RCMII based Failure Modes and Effect Analysis (FMEA) with associated Tactics selection and Task development in one seamless application.
  • The output of the ASPD process is a clear and succinct Asset Management Master Plan for the Asset Type. The Asset management plan includes a high level annual maintenance masterplan as well detailed task lists with requisite resource requirements.


  • The Binmak Chapungu Asset Strategies development process follows a simple but effective tactics selection logic to determine the appropriate tactics with the goal of ending up with at least 60% condition based maintenance as the optimum maintenance mix

Binmak Rukodzi: Defect Elimination Process

The Hawk Eagle

  • The Binmak Rukodzi Defect Elimination System Provides Reliability Engineers with a powerful yet flexible and simple system to conduct root cause analysis and structured problem solving.
  • Based on the DMAIC process and employ the ISHIKWA process steps in identifying root cause and ultimately the most effective solutions.
  • Key steps in the Binmak Rukodzi Defect Elimination process include:
    • Defining the problem
    • Measuring: Getting the evidence
    • Analysis
    • Implementing the solutions
    • Controlling and sustaining
  • The output of the DE process is an action oriented A3 pack with roles, responsibilities and implementation timelines.
  • The Binmak DE Process also prioritises problem into 3 level depending on severity and hence level of detailed analysis
    • Level 1: Minor – 5 WHY
    • Level 2: Recurring problem – A3
    • Level 3: Serious problem – Full RCA or FMEA

Binmak Njerere: Focused Improvement

The Peregrine Falcon

  • The Binmak Njerere Focused Improvement System Like the preregrine falcon, which is the fastest animal on earth reaching speeds up to 390km/h, the Binmak Njerere Focused improvement approach is designed to produce rapid tangible results in record speed, usually within 100 days.
  • Key elements of the focused improvement approach include an 8 step change management process:

Implementation Timeline for the 100-day Focused Improvement Implementation Approach include:

Based on the accelerated delivery approach as seen in times of crisis when extraordinary results can be achieved in record time the Binmak Approach follows a clear and repeatable process for creating a sense of urgency, focus on results and team empowerments to drive action
