The RELIABILITY Conference - 47:14
by Chad Broussard, Phillips 66 and Chris Colson, Allied Reliability Group
Developing, implementing, and sustaining effective maintenance strategies are common obstacles for all organizations. This presentation shares insight into one company’s journey through the implementation of failure-based maintenance strategies, including Preventive Maintenance (PM), Predictive Maintenance (PdM), and Operator Care tasks. Performing the correct work with the correct knowledge and expertise is vital to the operations of a business. Improved equipment reliability requires not only the detection of failures but also improved techniques through proper skills training. Doing so begins with a plan and follows through execution. Success of such is measured through the expectations of precision maintenance and operational techniques that eliminate the root cause of equipment failure. This implementation required constant collaboration between Operations, Maintenance Mechanics, PdM Technicians, Planners, Schedulers, Supervisors, and Management to ultimately improve increased capacity through equipment reliability, all of which has resulted in achieving measurable financial improvements.
