CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

APRIL 2016 – Succeeding in today’s complex, highly-regulated process, petrochemical, oil & gas, mining and utility industries depends on how well your company can manage physical and operational risk, while increasing operational safety, efficiency, and asset integrity. Today, that means moving beyond isolated systems to integrated solutions delivering real-time risk visibility across your entire organization. Combining Operational Sustainability’s proven focus on enterprise solutions to reduce risk, enhance efficiency, and improve asset integrity with the risk and reliability training and services of recognized leader Aladon gives companies an integrated approach to asset management.

Aladon is the leading risk and reliability network, delivering risk and reliability training and services through a global community of highly trained reliability professionals certified by Aladon as Risk and Reliability Practitioners and Facilitators. Aladon certified practitioners teach integrated team-based risk and reliability methodologies for all types of physical assets. Through the work of Aladon, companies in more than 80 countries have successfully implemented Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) practices over the past three decades. Through the Aladon-led evolution of RCM to RCM2™ and now RCM3™, Aladon continues to lead the way in designing methodologies to lower risks and increase reliability across all types of physical assets in all industries.

Integrating technology and software to implement the methodologies and processes requires a clear understanding of enterprise level data analysis for risk and reliability. Operational Sustainability’s OSSuite™ provides the enterprise software to underpin Aladon’s reliability and risk methodologies, including:

  • Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM)
  • Risk Based Inspection (RBI)
  • Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA)
  • Process Hazard Analysis (PHA)
  • Condition Assessment (CA)
  • Asset Life Extension Management (ALEM)

OSSuite™ is an industry-leading cloud-based, mobile-enabled Enterprise Risk Management software solution. OSSuite is designed to take the complexity out of navigating asset management challenges, from optimizing maintenance and inspection intervals to reliability centered maintenance and managing equipment life cycles.

The comprehensive approach to asset risk management and performance improvement offered by the combined strengths of Aladon and Operational Sustainability helps companies enhance compliance activities, reduce business interruptions, increase asset utilization, manage lifecycle cost, optimize maintenance and inspection intervals, prevent unwanted events, and protect their reputation. Reliability centered design, operations and maintenance combined with comprehensive performance and asset management form the bedrock of our asset integrity approach.
