BoK 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.
Motor Management = Less Anxiety, More TranquilityBoK Content Type:Presentation SlidesPresentation PaperBoK Content Source:MainTrain 2014Original date:Tuesday, November 18, 2014In today’s climate of steadily increasing energy prices, poor control of motor efficiency has significant costs that are often “invisible” and uncontrolled. A motor management plan that has buy-in from all affected stakeholders will help realize the full value of your motor asset while saving energy, reducing downtime, lowering operating cost and lessening your “anxiety costs”. In this session review the evolution of motor efficiency and discuss why operating cost needs to be the basis for selecting a new motor versus only the initial purchase price. Learn from cases that illustrate the significant benefits of higher efficiency motors and motor selection tools available.
