Shared Learning Library
Welcome to PEMAC's Shared Learning Library, a growing body of community created knowledge, built up and maintained by the PEMAC member community. Explore a range of articles, presentations and webcasts covering a wide range of maintenance, reliability and asset management subject areas. You can even find presentations from past MainTrain conferences and PEMAC Lunch & Learn webcasts.
To easily find what you are looking for the content of the Shared Learning Library can be filtered by both Maintenance Management and Asset Management subject areas using the options in the menu to the left of the screen.

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.
Case Study: Lean Six Sigma in Maintenance OptimizationBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2017Original date:Wednesday, April 12, 2017Application of Lean Six Sigma methodology in the optimization of maintenance execution by using data and facts. As always, equipment maintainability plays an important role in uptime. Besides the reduction of failure rates, the quick recovery from those failures or the successful execution of scheduled activities makes a considerable difference in availability indicators. The application of Lean tools and Six Sigma analysis contributes to the improvement of maintenance execution by applying the 5 steps of Lean Six Sigma methodology (Define, Measure, Analyze, Implement and Control) and using the tools associated with them. This presentation will discuss Lean Six Sigma theory, basic principles of the methodology and case studies showing the use of tools. Case 1 will illustrate the application of Lean Six Sigma in scheduled preventive maintenance for slurry pumps operating in the oil sands industry. Case 2 will examine how the use of Six Sigma analysis reduced the corrosion rate of tubes in a bank of 12 heat exchangers shell and tube type, which heat diluted bitumen upstream of a distillation tower. Both cases emphasize the importance of using data and facts to make decisions, including front end personnel, and the sustainment of implemented solutions. Presented at MainTrain 2017
Process Performance Optimization (PPO): Combining Reliability, Lean and Change ManagementBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2015Original date:Tuesday, September 29, 2015Today, leaders of organizations are stretched to do more with less. They are asked to cover more areas with fewer resources, with less time and smaller budgets. Given these constraints, how can we continue to drive improvement and achieve success? We must focus tactically to drive improvement and eliminate issues that impact our ability to perform. In this session participants will see how focused improvement efforts can provide significant bottom line impacts and be sustained after the project. Learn how chronic and persistent reliability issues can be solved using a targeted Process Performance OptimizationSM (PPO) approach that integrates best practices in change management, lean and asset management. In order to effectively drive PPO, organizations should focus on this four-step approach along with weaving in an appropriate level of change management to sustain the gains.
