Any plant, in order to maximize its production, must have a world-class maintenance team that takes care of every single piece of equipment in the field. Maintenance teams could be considered the superheroes of any plant, since they must always maintain and return the equipment in the fastest and most efficient way. Wrench time is the actual time a maintenance crew works on a piece of equipment, and wrench time analysis is used to measure the maintenance team's effectiveness. Many companies apply wrench time for a very limited time and do not go for a continuous way of study. This presentation will show a self-reporting wrench time case study that was implemented in a Saudi Arabian petrochemical plant. We'll aim to explore the effect of self-reporting wrench time and answer the following three questions: Does wrench time analysis increase maintenance efficiency? Does self-reporting wrench time lead to better maintenance efficiency? What is the impact of self-reporting wrench time on maintenance team performance?
