Optimize plant reliability with operator-based maintenance programs
This case study demonstrates the potential maintenance-labor cost savings that can be obtained through the greater utilization of operations staff; such savings can justify OPPM program investment.
There are few groups within an operating facility that have as much impact on production and availability as operations. Regardless of the level of process automation and condition monitoring, an operator-performed preventive-maintenance (OPPM) program, in conjunction with positive and consistent engagement with operations, will be a driving factor in a facilitys total effectiveness. OPPM programs provide a boots on the ground approach in determining asset health, along with determining other issues that may not be reflected through a traditional preventive-maintenance (PM) program.
For many organizations, OPPM has traditionally been an informal process with scant attentio
