What is CMMS Preventive maintenance software?

I have worked in the maintenance team for more than 10 years at 2 different companies. Both of them use CMMS to help manage maintenance activities. The CMMS I have used is Avantis and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (JDE E1). My job function is as a maintenance engineer and planner who is often involved in maintenance strategy evaluation, RCM assessment, and Planning & Scheduling. CMMS is very useful to give users immediate insight into the state of his maintenance needs with comprehensive work order schedules, accurate inventory forecasts, and instant access to hundreds of invaluable reports. CMMS solutions make maintenance management easier by empowering users with information that they can make the most informed decisions possible. What is CMMS stand for? CMMS stands for Computerized maintenance management system. CMMS is software that maintains a database of information about maintenance activities in a particular company. This maintenance activity information is intended to support maintenance folks to do their jobs more effectively and to support management in decision making. Some information is available in CMMS such as data of equipment that require maintenance in a specific period and in a specific area. By using CMMS, a Planner can make preventive maintenance plan, predictive[…]

7 things that must be done to become successful employees

Want to be a successful employee? Of course, everyone wants to get success in his life. Success in the workplace, success in family affairs, entrepreneurial success or success in taking bachelor, master or doctoral degrees. This success can make us feel happy, feel valued, more confident in life and gain satisfaction that cannot be measured by money. This time we will discuss 7 things that must be done in order to become successful employees. improve education Education makes us smarter. High school students have higher intelligence than middle school students. MS students have a deeper insight into the knowledge of undergraduate students. Admittedly or not, this degree of education is one of the benchmarks in the world of work. Workers who have a master’s degree get more awards from workers with undergraduate education. Even in some countries in Europe, a master’s degree in engineering is a common standard for employees/workers in the engineering field. The higher the education, the higher the chance of success. Most (> 50%) engineers in the office where I “work” have a master’s degree in engineering or in managerial fields such as Masters in Management or MBA. dream high Dreams or dreams of blood in our[…]

guided wave ultrasonic testing and LRUT basic

guided wave ultrasonic testing for pipeline inspection in oil and gas industry

Why choose guided wave ultrasonic testing pipeline inspection? LRUT (Long range ultrasonic testing) or sometimes called as GWT (guided wave testing) is becoming commonplace today for ultrasonic pipeline inspection. This technology is used as excellent NDT for the screening tool. Guided wave ultrasonic pipeline inspection offer many advantages such as High productivity (km per day), access required only at discrete locations, carried out with pipe on-line ( not require shutdown) and 100% coverage except for flanges, tees and other large features. This LRUT/GWT technology come as a solution for pipeline inspection problem like restricted access, many lines not suitable for in-line inspection (ILI / pigging inspection), regular UT and RT techniques are typically not cost-effective or typical UT and RT coverage 0.1%. After conduct LRUT/GWT screening and found some anomaly or “indication”, the inspector will dig the anomaly with other NDT tools such as UT scanning or UT Flaw detector. How guided wave ultrasonic testing work? The tools create Symmetric waves that transmitted along the pipe. The waves propagate along, not through, a pipeline. The wave is reflected from changes in the cross-section in a pipeline. The amplitude of the reflection depends on the total change in the pipe wall[…]

how to develop dissimilar metal or galvanic corrosion prevention

what is dissimilar metal or galvanic corrosion prevention? Corrosion is a process of damage to a material due to environmental influences. This is a natural process in metals. Corrosion in metals and equipment in the oil and gas industry results in financial losses, pollutes the environment and can endanger human safety. Engineers and scientists do a lot of research on corrosion to prevent and control the corrosion rates. On this occasion, we will discuss Galvanic Corrosion or known as dissimilar metal corrosion. This corrosion occurs when 2 different metal or alloy metals in the same environment and interconnected. This corrosion occurs because of the potential difference between the metals so that one metal functions as the anode and the other metal functions as the cathode. The principle of galvanic corrosion is the same as the electro-chemical principle of electrodes (cathodes and anodes), electrolytes and electric current. Metal that functions as an anode is a metal which before being connected is more active or has a more negative corrosion potential. At the anode, corrosion will occur oxidation reaction or dissolution reaction. Whereas at the cathode there is a metal reduction reaction. Galvanic series is a list of the value of corrosion[…]
