BoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesVideoBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2022Original date:Friday, April 29, 2022Within the mining industry, the library of KPIs has not kept up with data that has become increasingly available through digitization, therefore leading to an overuse of lagging performance indicators. Additionally, due to the fact that strategic corporate goals are oftentimes built on the basis of soft or perceptual measures from stakeholders, which are subjective in nature, organizations struggle with the process of linking strategic level goals to KPIs on the shop floor. Therefore, creating a communication gap between technical teams and senior management. As a consequence, maintenance leaders have a difficult time demonstrating the added value that maintenance activities create with an organization, leading to challenges in securing the resources required for things such as continuous improvement projects. Considering that the implementation of a robust KPI framework is an alignment of three key areas: people, process, and technology, the first portion of this presentation will be investigating a holistic approach to developing maintenance KPIs that are integrated into corporate strategic goals. Therefore, outlining the steps required for organizational leaders to begin standardizing data gathering procedures and creating a trustworthy system that can be leveraged for decision making. Aside from the previously discussed administrative challenges associated with data gathering within organizations, it must also be highlighted that KPIs are collected on a monthly or quarterly basis, meaning that training sets for forecasting models are extremely limited. Therefore, in order to address the reliance on lagging performance indicators within maintenance departments, a variety of time series models capable of achieving high accuracy on small datasets will be discussed along with direct business applications. Through achieving these goals, the intended outcome is to create a more contemporary data driven methodology for selecting organizational KPIs, as well as directly demonstrating the added value that the various business units create within the organization.
Keynote: Strategic Investment Into Our Greatest Asset – Our PeopleBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesVideoPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2022Original date:Wednesday, February 16, 2022Our collective goals are to operate and maintain the facility in a safe, compliant, effective, and socially responsible manner to sustain a 100% commercial availability. There is no greater impact to these goals than the people directly responsible for the Operation and Maintenance at the Facilities. These goals are met through a combination of strategies that involve a myriad of challenging communications. More than anything, these communications require a complimentary skillset not necessarily honed by todays skilled craftsmen, soft skills. They may take the form of questioning the status quo, holding each other accountable, or courageous conversations. Essentially, we want teams who will listen and understand the facts of the whole situation at hand, and work together to elevate to the occasion, thereby addressing the failure or opportunities for improvements to the absolute best of their collaborative abilities. In addition to having the Technical skillset to operate and maintain our critical assets, our high functioning Teams need to contribute and extrapolate their soft skills by:- Creating a psychologically safe space to work to collaborate and challenge - Know, understand, believe the facts, then Act - Fostering an Environmental & Safety conscious workplace - Empowering each other, challenging the status quo and continuous improvement Teams that can leverage these 4 key strategies are able to rise to greatness at the most critical moments and inspire each other to do their very best work. As such, the focus of this MMP Capstone will be the strategic investment and development of our Teams’ communications skillset. We will explore the many communications related failures that I have personally experienced and dissect individually the cost of each such failure, thereby quantifying the cost of poorly managed communications and, the cost benefit to investing in our greatest asset; Our People.
Case Studies on Maintenance Management and Reliability ImprovementBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2019Original date:Wednesday, May 15, 2019Even today, many organizations see maintenance as a necessary evil neglecting the importance it has toward attaining optimum business results. These organizations have maintenance managers, supervisors, and technicians who are responsible for the preservation of their physical assets. Upon talking to and sharing experience with many maintenance colleagues in various countries, I've learned that most maintenance supervisors and managers don't have a formal maintenance educational background, yet they must make important decisions regarding assets affecting their business's bottom line. We learn about maintenance the hard way, learning from equipment failures and guessing how to avoid them by applying what has resulted well in the past and what the equipment manufacturer tells us. When organizations realize they must do something about maintenance to improve their business bottom line, they're exposed to a lot of information about many tools boasting to offering what they need to do better. This presentation will showcase the results of various case studies performed by our consulting firm at crude oil pumping, pharmaceutical, and water treatment organizations located in North and South America. Several methodologies ranging from Uptime (Strategies for Excellence in Maintenance Management) to RCM-R, ACA, RCA, and even PdM were used to tackle situations at the strategic, tactic, and operational levels.
