  1. I wanted to let you of some upcoming changes to the Road to Reliability Community site. First of all, I am very excited to announce that work has commenced on a Road to Reliability app that will become available in Q2 2021. This will make all courses offered through the Road to Reliability Academy available to you on the go via a native iOS and Android app. More to follow on this in Q1 2020. In preparation for this, the free online community will merge with the Road to Reliability Academy site later this year or very early in 2021. This is so that we can offer the community thro

  2. Having been in the Reliability arena for many years as well, I directly connect to the feeling that Reliability and Maintenance is mainly perceived as an inconvenient (though possibly necessary) cost centre, and only when things really go wrong the ‘Firefighters’ are rewarded for their quick and temporary solutions; “….and let’s not spend more money on it since the equipment is working again and we need to catch up on Production”. Those that diligently plod-on with prevention of incidents or failing equipment and enhance staying in control of Availability are often not seen nor acknowled

  4. 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

  5. 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 man

  6. 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 equipme

  7. Agree with you @Superman. There is this common mistake found in field that people in charge did not take oil properly. They often taking shortcut to easieng their job such as taking directly from the drain plug instead of using vaccum pump, not using glove, putting the bottle and comp. in unhygeness place or taking the oil as soon as the machine off, the commulative oil will not able to take since some is still have not drop from system and also dangerous since the oil hot. Its important to have someone capable to vising the work.

  8. Hi @Doug Shortt apologies for the late reply. Also just re-reading I should have use "RIME" instead of RPN which I have no fixed. I've attached a sample of both the RIME and RAM methods which are slides from the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling course

  9. I can easily find examples as it relates to FMEA RPN by searching the internet, but haven't been able to locate anything that adds points as work sits in a backlog.

  10. @Erik Hupje do you have more info, or examples of, on using RPN as I agree with your comment in regards to the benefits of it's use. I am currently employed as a Contractor Site Manager offering contract tradespersons to our client and they are stuck in a very reactive culture, yet won't admit it. I would be very interested in seeing an example of a RPN to learn more about the scoring. I am aligned with your thinking and logic in your "Road to Reliability" documents and want to use more to try and develop a more proactive culture at the site. It is often very difficult to get owners to listen

  11. Thanks for sharing your SAP journey with us @Hadwll When you train your staff make sure you do not just train your staff in SAP transactions, but that you train them in the business process so they understand what they're being asked to do, how to do it and why.

  12. Sorry @Raul Martins and @Herr Schneider missed this topic. I do not have direct experience with what is referred to as Risk Based Work Selection, but I have been actively involved in scope reviews for major turnarounds and these were very much risk based. And very similar to what is described for RBWS in the Becht article in that it was a facilitated review of all turnaround scope with all technical experts in the room and consisted of a risk review of doing the scope in the outage, or not. What worries me in the article by Becht is that they look at benefits vs costs, but very often in h

  15. Hi Erik, I have passed it in 2015. My membership have lapsed now and I didn't renew it as it is not widely recognized here in Malaysia, and the courses to get the points are not as easy to get locally. If memory serves me right, the exam itself was not extremely difficult, as it was just a couple of hours worth of exam to regurgitate what you have (or should have) listened to after a 3 day presentation/course. I guess the trickiest ones are the definitions Have you attended the CMRP?
