Our Five Step Program Include:
Identify Recurring Problems
This involves looking at what is the root cause of downtime, as well as looking at alarm and shutdown logs. We build a trend for recurring problems and create a list that prioritizes best, by going by production loss and safety issues. We have found in the past that getting the Board Operators to document a list of any significant outages i.e: Instrument or Ops Callouts is very helpful to quickly identify a trend.
Provide a Solution
We involve all parties i.e; Engineering, Operations, Construction, etc. and come up with the most cost-effective solution to address specific issues and create an action plan to complete the job.
Communicate The Updates
After the problems are resolved, we make sure to push the information forward to all parties to ensure new construction isn’t being done the old way.
Build a PM Structure for Anything Safety and Production Related
To ensure compliance and safety we use the intervals that have been established by the manufacturers and regulatory bodies. This involves presenting a recommended PM schedule based on our experience with certain devices. For example; Compressors get a complete PM every year and a checkup every six months, whereas gas calibrations will be quarterly. Shutdown devices will be planned for T/A or annual online if an outage is not planned. Also, we build document templates that are updated every time a new piece of equipment is added.
After the first year of PM’s, we review the cost associated and the runtime increase, so we can address any changes the customer would like to make to the PM plan.
We strongly believe in Communication and Documentation to avoid future complications. It is our priority to ensure all parties involved are aware of the proposed changes and that our team champions the task of approving any changes to the program.
