Machines Management and your business Strategic Model for Machines Management

Machines Management and your business
• The cost of not managing your machines.
Strategic Model for Machines Management.

Do you have a Machine Management Strategy? If so .Do you know what it is? .

How critical is the performance of your machines to overall performance of your business? .

You must take into consideration: • Is your plant single stream? • What is the cost of downtime / lost production? • What is the cost of maintenance? – Planned – Unplanned .

Machines Management and Your Business. Strategic Model for Machines Management. • Critical success factors for machines management. .

Adopt a totally proactive maintenance approach .Strategic intent of Incitec’s machines management program.

Equipment Life Plans . What needs to be done. when and how.Providing systems of work which ensure an appropriate level of proactive maintenance is carried out.

decision making and planning.Installing Systems which provide information to support analysis. Condition Monitoring Systems .

Installing Systems which dictate how a maintenance task is to be performed. Work Instructions and ITPs .

abnormal condition management and decommissioning.Installing Systems which dictate how an operating task is to be performed. ie for commissioning. Operating Procedures . normal operation.

Lubrication Management Systems .Ensure ongoing reliable operation through the utilisation of best practice lubrication (filtration) management systems.

Lubrication Management Systems . Full plant audits with 6 monthly reviews. Improved lubrication practices.System to capture and act upon audit data proactively.M. Optimisation of product.Dynamic oil C.

Ensure that no unplanned outages or extension to planned outages occur through component problems. Critical Spares Management .

Critical Spares Management .Control on stores inventory through MRP planner. Savings through Vendor Alliances. Regular stock turnover reports looked at. Dedicated use of SOS software.

Ensure that components are replaced before failing due to an end of life mode. Remnant Life Analysis .

Root Cause Analysis .Ensure that the root cause of equipment failures is established. understood and addressed with the corrective actions reflecting business impact.
