Can assure the proper permits have been obtained and that a job plan with clear deliverables has been created prior to the start of work.
Asset Utilization Management - Method of management of equipment which incorporates business objectives such as asset availability, product quality and overall equipment efficiency (OEE). Incorporates output to drive business decisions regarding staffing, equipment replacement / rebuilds, and redundant plant. Utilizes metrics such as Maintenance cost as a percent of RAV (replacement asset value), stocked indirect material, repair parts, and operational supplies as a percent of RAV. Capable of calculating OEEs. Uses OEE data in decision making regarding improvements in maintenance plan versus equipment renovation. Utilizes Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) data to adjust maintenance plan. Uses efficiency data and utilization data to influence decisions.
Maintenance Reliability Engineering - Failure management strategies, including predictive (PdM), preventative (PM), and conditional maintenance, ratings/deratings of components to optimize useable life of components to meet specific needs based on the concepts of Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM), Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and other quantitative techniques to choose the specific technology to be use to lower the probability of failure to acceptable limits. When failures do occur, Reliability Engineering techniques included are Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Failure Analysis, FMEA.
