CMMS Computerize Maintenance Management System best practice 2 (asset management software)

Computerize Maintenance Management System best practice In the previous article, we discussed CMMS Computerized Maintenance Management System best practice on Work order management. Now we will talk about second best practice on Planning-scheduling. Normally the Planner prepares a set of work orders weekly. The planning activities include checking work order scope of work, prepare material for work execution,  prepare supporting equipment such as lifting equipment, work alignment with other team and also prepare sequence of work.   CMMS Computerized Maintenance Management System best practice – scheduling After the planner complete planning activity, he continue the next step for scheduling activity.

CMMS Computerized Maintenance Management System best practice 1 (asset management software)

CMMS Computerized Maintenance Management System best practice Today we will discuss about CMMS Computerized Maintenance Management System best practice that used by Maintenance team. There are many software companies create CMMS software. Mostly they use Oracle database to maintain its data. Some known CMMS product are Avantis, Maximo, Dematic, API Pro etc. CMMS Computerized Maintenance Management System best practice – Work Order There are many Work Order type used in CMMS such as WO Predictive, WO Preventive or WO Corrective. WO preventive is used for preventive task by maintenance team like changing Lube oil every 6 months. WO predictive is used for predictive task by Inspection Team like vibration measurement every 3 months. WO corrective is used for corrective work like pump overhaul or pipeline repair. By dividing WO to 3 types, we can easily review maintenance cost of each equipment.  Maintenance cost analysis is used to define worst actor or bad actor in each plant. Reliability engineer use this data to review maintenance task during RCM assessment.

IDMS Integrity Database Management System best practice 3 (asset management software)

IDMS integrity database management system best practice we will continue the previous article about IDMS integrity database management system best practice. Previously we talk about design code, inspection method involved and trending. now we will focus on Risk Based Inspection feature. IDMS integrity database management system best practice : upload Risk Based Inspection assessment One of Asset integrity Engineer job is conduct Risk based inspection for all fixed equipment. Risk Based Inspection assessment involve many job functions such as Asset Integrity engineer, Inspection specialist / API inspector, Corrosion engineer, operation folk and also IDMS Specialist. there are 3 type RBI methods i.e qualitative assessment, quantitative assessment and semi-quantitative assessment. In qualitative assessment, the SME (Subject Matter Expert) make a score of Pof (probability of failure) based on their expertise. They can say a carbon-dioxide pipeline is higher corrosive than a “high purity” crude oil pipeline.  They do not need to see or review corrosion rate & inspection results on those pipelines. In quantitative assessment, a RBI team require a set of data and justification to make PoF score. Usually RBI team require inspection result data, corrosion rate data, fluid properties, operation condition and pipeline material properties. In semi-quantitative assessment, a[…]

IDMS integrity database management system best practice – Thickness measurement location TML

Recording Thickness Measurement Location – TML we will continue the previous article about IDMS integrity database management system. Previously we talk about design code and inspection method involved. now will focus on trending of inspection result represented by a term called Thickness measurement location or TML. Thickness Measurement Location records contain various fields that store information to identify a TML. When we create a new Thickness Measurement Location record, we will need to supply information in some of fields. The following information provides various fields that are defined for the Thickness Measurement Location such as TML ID design pressure design temperature corrosion allowance Allowable Stress Design Code Code Year (Allowable Stress Lookup) Material Specification T-min formula Critical thickness structural thickness number of reading nominal thickness inspection date previuos inspection date inspection interval expire date corrosion rate IDMS integrity database management system – understanding Thickness measurement Location – TML trending In practice, the fixed interval of pressure vessel inspection is 5 years. UT inspector takes the measurement shell & head thickness at some locations. we call it as TML, thickness measurement location. an IDMS data entry populates TML readings into IDMS software. IDMS software calculates short corrosion rate, long corrosion rate,[…]
