Watching the Horizon with Criticality Analysis

Criticality analysis is a structured process to quantify how important an asset is to the organization by determining the level of risk specific failure modes pose. Criticality analysis is used extensively in high-risk industries like petrochemical, mining and chemical processing.  By varying the level of detail, any organization can use the process to reduce risk and lower overall manufacturing costs.

Bill of Materials: A List of Parts to Streamline Maintenance Work Management

No other element of the technical database provides as much value to planning as an accurate bill of materials. Bills of material are a list of parts that are used on the equipment. When developing BOMs, focus on parts used for routine maintenance, repair, and operation of the equipment. Individual parts should contain a minimum amount of information including: a consistent and organized name, manufacturer and their item number, price, lead time, and quantity needed for the equipment.

Engineering Standards to Help Lower Cost

The consistent use of accurate engineering standards represents a huge opportunity to simplify the planning process. Engineering standards cover a wide range of topics from design to operation and maintenance activities. Many already exist and are commonly used across industries. Plant-specific standards take an initial time investment to create, but once written can be reliably used to speed up the planning effort, provide clear instructions to work crews, and help standardize critical and frequent activities.
