BoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesWebcastBoK Content Source:Practitioner ProducedOriginal date:Thursday, May 28, 2020Organizations have a performance metric for productivity measured as cost per unit produced, or sometimes called unit cost or cost of service. In operations, we recognize we can affect the numerator with how well we manage our costs, and we can affect the denominator with how much we can produce. What is Super-Productivity? We define Super-Productivity as the sum of all the bad over the sum of all the good. As a leader, if you really want agency over all your organization’s activities and you desire operationally excellent results, then you must reflect all the opportunity costs your organization has been blind to in the measure of productivity. Is your organization courageous enough to see yourself in that light? Few are. Here’s what it takes. Join Paul Daoust as we challenge our perceptions on the fascinating relationship between cost, performance and risk. Together we will apply these concepts to asset-intensive organizations to enable more, better decisions, vastly improved business plans and higher value business outcomes from the same assets with fewer resources.
Increasing Operational Service Levels Using Preventative Maintenance Optimization Strategies: A Case Study of the LINK APM System at Toronto Pearson International AirportBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2018Original date:Thursday, March 29, 2018In 2017, the LINK Automated People Mover (APM) at Toronto Pearson International Airport transported an average of 24,000 passengers per day — a 20% increase in passenger traffic from 2015, according to a 2017 report by the GTAA. To increase operational service levels, preventative maintenance optimization (PMO) initiatives were undertaken in 2015 and 2016 in co-ordination with the APM owner, manufacturer, and O&M service provider. The initiatives were designed to increase the overall day-to-day operational run-time of the LINK system while maintaining existing levels of safety and reliability. In this workshop, we’ll use the LINK APM system as a case study to discuss the requirements for successful PMO implementation, which include interorganizational communication and co-operation, RCM strategies, and due diligence as it relates to safety-related subsystems and processes. We’ll also offer a blueprint for similar optimization strategies.
Democratizing Predictive Maintenance through the Industrial Internet of ThingsBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2018Original date:Wednesday, February 28, 2018With all the talk about big data and the IIoT, many are asking how can we use this in maintenance? The IIoT enables us to put sensors in any location where we might want to collect and analyze equipment condition and performance data. There are companies that offer predictive maintenance services, and some companies do this for themselves, in-house. Typically, it’s the larger companies that can afford this, but democratization has meant this has become available to a much broader market. But there are hurdles to taking advantage of this sort of continuous monitoring program, even for your most critical equipment. One, it’s expensive, whether you do it in-house or outsource. And two, there are data bottlenecks. Condition monitoring data comes is huge volumes and it’s all time-sensitive. Even if you can afford it, you need a data handling network with a lot of capacity. In this workshop, we’ll present a viable technical solution to the data bottleneck problem — based on a solution already proven in financial securities markets — that opens up these possibilities in the realm of plant continuous condition monitoring.
Uptime ThreeBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2015Original date:Tuesday, September 29, 2015"Uptime - Strategies for Excellence in Maintenance Management" has been a best-seller since 1995. It's 3rd edition includes a number of significant changes from the earlier editions reflecting changes in successful practices, the emerging field of Asset Management and the new imperative that any changes become sustainable. This workshop will provide an overview of the new Uptime "Model of Excellence," introduce the book's new material, explain how it all works and fits within the broader asset management framework.
