We attended SMRP’s 30th Annual Conference!
We recently attended SMRP’s 30th Annual Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina! During our time at the conference, we saw two major themes. First, many industrial facilities have reliability programs that are in their infancy and facility leaders are looking to mature their programs by incorporating basic reliability principles into their processes. Second, facilities are looking to switch to a more proactive maintenance approach and are looking for a solution that will streamline and prioritize data from multiple systems into a single view of reliability.

How to Eliminate Data Silos to Drive Better Reliability Decisions at Your Facility
Sean Rosier and Michael Wallace
Many industrial facilities have design, operations, process, asset condition, and risk model data stored in a variety of different repositories, creating data silos. Regardless of whether the data is a hardcopy, stored in spreadsheets, or software, the solution is not simply integrating everything into one software. The key to building a strong reliability program is to correctly bring your data together and properly contextualize it by feeding it into the right models. In this presentation, Sean Rosier and Michael Wallace discuss how facilities can approach solving common data challenges to build a strong reliability program.
Today’s projects have become more complex and require an ever-increasing integration into multiple areas of customer operating organizations due to the large volumes of engineering and operational data required to effectively operate and maintain a facility over its expected design life. Additionally, increasing government regulation and financial performance have required owners to have all operating systems and information in place prior to start up or the awarding of an operating license, making operational readiness a critical component of achieving facility goals in the design phase. In this presentation, presenters will discuss a case study example of how a wastewater treatment facility undergoing an estimated $1.7B capital expansion was able to recognize an estimated $100MM in cost savings over the life of the facility by applying Reliability Centered Design (RCD) and Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) principles from front-end engineering design all the way through commissioning. Watch to learn how you can leverage operational readiness to improve design, optimize capital and operational expenditures, and streamline operations and maintenance at their facilities.
