BoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesWebcastPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2018Original date:Friday, April 6, 2018R&M professionals are typically the main drivers and beneficiaries of an RCM or similar reliability study at a facility. However, when you invite operations and other key business personnel to participate, we’ve found it often opens their eyes to M&R improvement opportunities and helps paint the picture for future joint improvement efforts. Organizations are then able to operate with the most efficiency, driving toward a world-class reliability program with plant-wide buy-in for the reliability improvement journey. This presentation will discuss a case study of a joint client and partner consultant approach of choosing a machine or line performing below desired performance levels. Using an RCM approach to improve maintenance strategies, the organization experienced reduced downtime and less labour reallocation and idle time, and gained many instant wins like increased visibility in the maintenance budget and increased collaboration between facilities.Presented at MainTrain 2018
‘Pumping’ Technology into our ‘Sewage Pumping Stations’BoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2018Original date:Tuesday, April 3, 2018“Sustainability through reliability” — presented at the 2015 MainTrain Conference — focused on the rapid growth of passenger flow at Toronto Pearson Airport and how, due to this growth, we were experiencing a high number of plumbing drainage failures. We carried out an RCA on our system and came up with changes in how we would prevent drainage failures. The changes we made dealt with our plumbing design standards; food and beverage tenant fats; oil and organics recovery system; lease agreements; and maintenance practices. However, that was only the starting point. In this presentation, we’ll discuss RCA conducted, the failures experienced, and the enhancements and improvements we made to make our system more reliable.
