Asset Grouping for CMMS

Jim Perp ·
Hi All, I’m looking for a fundamental Plant equipment grouping template for a power plant. It’s like a methodology of plant equipment grouping of systems. This is done by “systems”: Chill Water System- Chiller Systems: Chiller #01: Control & Instru. (CI) Systems: Xmitter CH#1 DP (Equip no. #####) Xmitter CH#1 Press (Equip no. #####) Xmitter CH#1 Temp (Equip no. #####) Electrical Systems: Compressor Motor#1(Equip no. #####) VFD CH#1(Equip no. #####) XFMR CH#1(Equip no. #####) Mechanical...

RCM should be a living program

John Reeve @TRM ·
If this is true, how does the CMMS community (easily) capture failure history in a format conducive to updating the failure mode and maintenance tactic? And if these RCM Analysis results are stored in external system (or Excel) then this adds a lot of extra clicking .... which means the odds are greatly reduced if any update or analysis will ever be made. And even more to the point, lets be real. If the CMMS community had 15,000 sites, and there were at best 500 sites that performed RCM...

Certified Maintenance Manager from AMP

Shurafa ·
Hello, I've tried to understand if the newly announced certification program Certified Maintenance Manager is suitable for me and if it is far from the older certification Certified Reliability Leader . Though the available information is limited, I'm, in concept, in favor of having such a training program. There is a need to embrace the classic technical skills (vibration, materials, planning, etc) with administrative skills for people leading maintenance teams. (I need to say I'm not...

CMMS history tracking

Jim Perpinan ·
I have a programming question about how the CMMS tracks & reveals repair work on equipment. Our current system goes like this: Equipment PM has w/o’s for each equipment on a PM route. If a piece of equipment is found to be defective a new equipment number is assigned and the old one is switch out on the PM with new one. Equipment PM will then have w/o’s for each equipment (new one too) on next PM route. My question here is how do you or the CMMS system or others know that a specific...

Re: CMMS VS EAM. What is the difference?

Hi All, We did some research into this area and came up with the following hypothesis. EAM is for Total Asset Lifecycle Management where CMMS is focussed on Asset Maintenance (which is a part of asset lifecycle). EAM is an enterprise-wide tool covering procurement, finance, planning, production, operations, maintenance and disposal. Our research suggested that CMMS is more aligned with Operations and Maintenance. You can view the table of differences and the complete research between EAM and...

CMMS & EAM are very different in early 1980, but now have several common modules, CMMS has specific modules like calibration management, lock & key management, predictive maintenance modules, IoT sensor connected for real time critical parameter monitoring.

Re: RCM should be a living program

Shurafa ·
"Continous improvement" program (regardless of the formal name people use in their facilities) needs to be a living exercise. The formal RCM is not easy to keep "living" in the way you explained, in MHO. RCM is very structured and time intensive. Lately, CMMS users have been trying FRACAS: Failure Reporting Analysis and Corrective Action System to positively build on their experience to improve their facilities at different phases of the assets (in general). Based my limited exposure to CMMS...

Re: RCM should be a living program

John Reeve @TRM ·
FRACAS is a process for reporting, classifying, analyzing failures, and planning corrective actions in response to those failures.  RCM is a set of tasks based on systematic evaluation used to develop a maintenance program.  These two definitions are similar in purpose perhaps but different in concept/approach.  Also note, that there are different versions of RCM as noted by Neil Bloom and Douglas Plucknette.  With those points to the side....  I have discovered the following to be true...

Re: CMMS Annual Programming

Jeff Wahl ·
Jim, what you're trying to do is called PM sequencing. The base number for your PM is the minimum frequency. In your case mostly. The annual PM occurs on the 12th interval of the monthly PM. The annual work plan should come out for that month in place of the monthly work plan. Jeff

If you look at Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and want it to be a living program, you should ask your self how can I make processes easier. One of the main problem is that date is incomplete, spread over to many computers or data bases and is not easily accessible. There for a good working Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) is essential. The time alone that is spend on retrieving data for analysis, materials that are used for repair and maintenance, job-plans, failure...

Re: RCM should be a living program

RCM has the opportunity of being updated with RCA recommendations for equipment failure. Updating the RCM can be quarterly which is Ideal taking into consideration that time taken to complete RCA varies. Living program for RCM is not an option as it is what defines RCM.

Re: Condition monitoring integrated software

It would be much easier to select a new program that can handle different technologies than to find one that can talk to existing systems from different vendors. I do not have a specific recommendation for a company or model but I suggest to consider the reliability and effectiveness of running different systems over the convenience to have all the inputs in the single depository. In many cases, at least in my environment, one technology will be a main tool for the condition monitoring and...

Hi Bob, I would recommend to take an alternative approach. Rather than looking at what software are best to use, I would recommend to look at multiple software options and see which ones suit your requirements the most. The success of your asset management or maintenance management will mostly come from how well your chosen EAM or CMMS software is implemented to suit your business processes/workflows Another suggestion I have is to involve your users to understand usability of the software...

Can you not download into spreadsheet to sort according to your selection criteria, as a temporary measure? However, sorting based on priorities will screen the high priorities first, then couple with planned maintenance which requires time window such as shutdown and resource availability.

Some additional information, and assumptions: User is using a CMMS and the intent is to stay within the product from ease of use standpoint.

Ideally you would be able to generate a resource-leveled weekly schedule with 2 clicks (from the work order main screen).
