Global Chemical Manufacturer has an immediate opening for a Reliability Engineer
The Reliability engineer will provide reliability support to the site by developing and implementing reliability engineering systems. Responsible for implementing Reliability methodologies like RBI (Risk Based Inspections), RCM (Reliability Centered Maintenance), RCFA (Root Cause Failure Analysis) and other reliability-based maintenance engineering principles and practices.
Develops and oversees the implementation of a comprehensive multi-year "Reliability Plan".
•Applying appropriate reliability tools to drive improvements, optimize costs, and improve AE (i.e., Bad Actor Program, FMEA, RBI, RBM, RCM, Reliability Roadmap, etc.).
•Ensuring development of Critical Equipment list.
•Monitoring Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and metrics for proactive identification and resolution of reliability issues.
•Supporting Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFAs) and corrective actions for complex and/or repetitive problems.
•Supporting the Bad Actor Program and create action plans for improving reliability.
oDevelopment of new/replacement equipment specifications for "bad actor" pieces of equipment.
•Supporting the site Mechanical Integrity program.
oIncluding the development and maintenance of the Vessel and Piping Inspection Program, Cathodic Inspection program and relief device and flame arrestor programs.
•Supporting capital projects by supplying engineering expertise in the specification, design, and construction of capital projects in accordance with plant design requirements as well as regulatory and Company standards.
•Assisting in the preparation of spare parts and PM Lists for new equipment.
•Planning and coordinating the activities associated with the maintenance of equipment to improve plant and equipment availability and efficiency in support of site production requirements.
•Designing maintenance strategies, procedures and methods.
•Supporting the Maintenance Department on preventive maintenance requirements and practices.
•Monitor new tools and technology available in the maintenance marketplace.
•Assist in the department's adherence to any Lean Manufacturing objectives.
•Participate in reliability related incident investigations; prioritize action items, and follow-up on their implementation.
•Continued development of a multi-year reliability improvement plan, this plan will include the development and execution of capital and expense projects for various operating units at the Site.
•Provide continuous improvement to the yearly maintenance plan (preventive, predictive) and monitor its execution.
•Ensure lessons learned, best practices, action items of reliability incidents are communicated both internally to the Site and externally to other Sites and incorporated in the design of new projects and new technical specifications.
•Complete monthly reporting, as required.
•Act as primary focal point for reliability related work groups.
•Interface with all Site plant operations maintenance, engineering and research personnel as necessary.
•Maintain all reliability maintenance records and files for the analysis and reporting of all reliability maintenance-related business matters.
