  1. Hi @Siddiqui, Welcome to Road to Reliability Online Community! Also, congratulations for your career and certifications! Keen to hear your thoughts on our discussions! I had some experience with Meridium in the past and it is definitely an interesting and powerful tool, although not really easy to have it set up and ready to go. Regards, Raul Martins

  2. Hi Erik, I will bear that in mind, really there are only a few transactions the technicians will be using and it will be getting them used to using them and as you said explaining their purpose. Small update, we have compiled the master data for the PM including the task lists and PM plans. It has yet to be loaded into the testing environment as the project team is busy with the other sites that are due to go live before us. Our go live is set now for the 2nd week in November. The test scripts for the software are now complete we have 6 roles defined Planner, maint manager, maint supervisor, mechanic, part room lead and part room attendant. The master data that was loaded checks out so far. The material side of the project is now the focus we have 3-5k parts in the room and no record of them. The process is to log the parts from the shelf to excel and then the SAP codes have to be checked if they are on the system. if not they either have to be created from scratch or requested to be extended from another site. We have had to bring in external support for this section of the project as the task is so great. There has been some discussion on how the notifications should be raised at our site. Weather it would be the operations dept or logged by the maint dept. One site that is coming from a legacy system is looking like it will have the operations dept make the requests. Our site that is coming from excel, were we did not have such a system is looking like the main dept will be asked to log the requests. I plan to make a presentation to the top management at the plant next week to coerce them into pushing the project team towards the operations team making the requests. In my head the main advantages are that there will be fewer missed notifications as the operations team will have direct access to the system. resulting in a better service from the main dept. It will create more items in the bucket list providing the chance for increased utilisation of our workforce, it frees up the planner to do other tasks in SAP. The machine minders will be able to enter a much greater detail and less chance of error than if it had to be input manually by the planner. Our technical dept will be able to log and keep track of their notifications on fabrication as they are closed out. If there are further examples, please let me know your thoughts or if you have any tips for securing the top managements support for the project.

  3. We have been using this tool for years and it has saved the company countless downtime and expenses by catching items before the go catastrophic. The nice thing is that you can detect the issue in the early stage and plan the repairs instead of running to failure and being forced to shut equipment down at a less than desirable time. Myself and some colleagues have all been through the training at Technical associates of Charlotte and are ISO certified category 2. We have routes on all the equipment deemed critical and take vibration readings on a regular basis that way we can trend the equipment and recognize discrepancy's in the readings. We also have a Vibration expert come in as needed to assist with the more in depth issues that may arise.
