MP2 certification
Registered Member Datastream at one time gave MP2 versions 5 and 6 certification tests. I am being told by their reps that they no longer do. Does anyone know of any other place that does give certification tests. My situation at work is that 12 maintenance personnel are being rolled into production areas as operators due to maint. cuts. I have maintained the MP2 6.0 for 2 years and never had a reason to be certified. Senority situation. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you Albert Anietie [ more ]

Should Weekly Schedule contain margin for Emergency jobs and Clearing Backlog
Registered Member Setting aside time and resources for emergency work is like hiding trash under the carpet. Regards. [ more ]
Registered Member Dear Marcelo, Thanks for your detailed response. I will clarify my intention in more detail. We have a lot of Backlog job because of Reactive Maintenance ( CM) obviously and it was keep on piling. We were in discussion in-house to assign 4 days a week for scheduled job and keep one day out of schedule to perform Reactive Maint. and if there is no Reactive Maint. then to perform Backlog activities. It will follow the same scheme of 80/20 but with known 20 percent for Reactive job each year. [ more ]
Registered Member Hi Muhammad. There are important concepts to clarify before propose answers to your questions. When you mention CM, actually you should say "Emergency and Urgent Work", as part of these kind of works are included the breakdowns(BD). Emergency/Urgent/BD work is not scheduled. Sometimes is referred as "Break-in Work". There is a debate among the Maintenance Management Profesionals concerning what would be the percentage of scheduled work that must be entered and freezed as a maximum at the end... [ more ]

Nothing that I read, need some help
Registered Member Mah, You are not alone. Thank you for explaining the condition of many large and small companies, when it comes to applying maintenance engineering and asset management tools. I guess the main point in your message is about resistance for continuous improvement because some key players are preferring to stay in the comfort zoon. In the industry, there are a few maintenance management schools some of which are not friends with other schools. Typically, old schools focus on maintaining... [ more ]

What is Preventive Maintenance?
Registered Member May I include the chapter: Implementing Preventive Maintenance into your discussion. It is attached and possibly helpful. Best regards, Paul D. Tomlingson 2100 W. Littleton Blvd. Apt 202 Littleton, CO 80120 303 377 5585 303 656 7875 pdtmtc@msn.com [ more ]
Registered Member Old thread but here is another view on what constitutes preventive maintenance: Preventive maintenance can be defined as “an equipment maintenance strategy based on replacing, or restoring, an asset at a fixed interval regardless of its condition. Scheduled restoration tasks and replacement tasks are examples of preventive maintenance tasks.” (source: The Professional's Guide to Maintenance and Reliability Terminology by Ramesh Gulati, Jerry Kahn and Robert Baldwin) Preventive maintenance...

Steam turbine leak - horizontal outer casing joint
Registered Member No, we have not yet. Steam leakge does not increase. We hope it will remain stable until the planned shut-down of productiion in June. Then it will be fixed properly (I hope so). [ more ]
Registered Member RIRO - Did it work out? Did you pump the furmanite? If so, did it work? If you didn't pump the furmanite, what are you going to do? We have a similar leaking joint, and we are shy about using the furmanite. We are considering replacing the studs with Inconel studs so we can apply additional torque. [ more ]
Registered Member The scheduled shutdown is in June and will last 3 weeks. For this reason, we planned to do temporary arrest of the leak by injecting the Furmanite sealing compound locally between flange surfaces. However, there is concern that this may also increase steam leakage. We are really in doubt as to what to do. [ more ]

Maintenance Activity Type
Registered Member I agree with David on the fact that Activity codes listed by Alireza should be used in the notification's activity table and should be set according to the catalog profile(equipment class) linked with the equipment. MATs does not seem to have a strict purpose in SAP. And once you figured out notification's activity codes are more usefull in reports, well, I don't really see any other purpose than to segregate orders just like David's team has done. ISO 14224 in my opinion, does not have any... [ more ]
Registered Member Hello Alireza, My understanding is that the SAP Maintenance Activity Type in the work order header would refer to the broader categories of Corrective Maintenance, Preventive Maintenance etc. The activities you have listed would be used in the SAP notification activity fields when recording the more detailed record of work performed. Regards, David [ more ]
Registered Member Hello I want refer to ISO 14224-2016 Table B.5 — Maintenance activity Maintenance activity for Corrective Maintenance: Repair Replace Overhaul Modify Refit Adjust Check Combination Other Maintenance activity for Preventive Maintenance: Repair Overhaul Modify Refit Service Adjust Test Inspection Combination Other Kind regards.

Breakdown recording/tracking
Registered Member Hi MAPMAINTENANCE, We use SAP's IW21 with a malfunction report config (M2) on a custom notification type N1. Equipment's are defined with equipment class allowing simple coding of failures through catalog profiles. It also allows for recording of who reported the breakdown, how long did it take to repair (good for MTTR stats) and it creates automatically a ZBRK work order type that is released automatically. This way the techs can add parts to the work order to build a picklist and then use... [ more ]
Registered Member Do you mean you tick the breakdown field in the notification? To record who does what, do you use operations in the work order? If the report is not done by the person who did the job, I think it is possible to enter the craftman name in the operations, isn't it? Otherwise, enter it in the longtext ine the operations as an interim measure. Anyway, don't you have technical support from SAP Plant Maintenance for solving technical enqueries like this one?

Equipment Numbering Schemes
Registered Member Here my 10 cents I like to keep it simple, but unique for no mistakes. simple to be understood for any one in the floor to properly fill up a work request and unique to avoid acidente where the tech shutdown and repair the wrong blue weld machine on the wrong corner ou kill someone. I use alphanumeric system (2 letters and 4 number) where the 1st letter is the main function of the machine. example W =weld 2nd is the type (Tig, resistance, spot, mig etc) and the numbers will be last 3 digits...

Registered Member This is just to share few thoughts regarding the equipment numbering system. The idea behind this numbering method is easy identification of equipment and location.

Which is the best practice to manage 14 days and 90 days look ahead maintenance plans
Registered Member Today's cloud base CMMS Software comes with capability to organize PM task as required in your maintenance plan, I am sharing you a good article on PM maintenance https://www.ezmaintain.com/blo...eventive-maintenance hope this might help you. [ more ]
Registered Member I strongly recommend your plan combines all PM and CM activities and you group your plan by system / equipment. That way you can show all PMs and CMs due per machine and then make sure you group that work and take your machine down only once. When you run 14 and 90 day schedules, common practice is that the 14-day schedule is re-issued every week and the 90-day schedule every month. For backlog make sure you have a robust system for prioritising work and then you separate the outstanding... [ more ]

Registered Member One of the most utilized Scheduler functions is the ability to update multiple records using the Modify Work Details and Mass Update fields. As a Planner, a lot of time is spent opening each individual record to re-schedule or update work orders.

Registered Member Do u use a breakdown field with downtime to be entered? [ more ]
Registered Member Getting good data always seems to be the hardest part of any analysis. How about you implement an SOP to get some standardization and accountability into your data collection? Do you use problem codes? Do you use job plans on your PMs? If you use a data querying software you might have better luck putting specific limits on your query to narrow the data down for better results. [ more ]

Work Execution ManagementPosts About Operator Driven Reliability (ODR)
ODR requires technology
Registered Member And trust me...no special technology needed here. Just basic skills. [ more ]
Registered Member Technology is not a requirement. Buy in (motivation) is not a requirement either. Some operators are motivated to do a good job so if they feel that the various little "tweaks" that most of them do to a machine actually makes a difference or impact and reflects on how they are viewed, they're going to do it. The trick though there is the feedback...the motivation. If the operator is highly silo'ed then your only feedback is when the technician comes by to work on the machine and that little... [ more ]
Registered Member From where I stand, understandable technology and training will always enhance and improve ODR. That being said ANY technology must be discussed and the operator needs to be 100% on board with the need to use it and be fluent in its use. There will always be a learning curve for both the operator and supervisors/management. However once the new technology is running effectively, most groups will quickly see the advantage of implementation. This is assuming of course the proper technology has... [ more ]

Opportunity based PM
Registered Member Hi, could you please send me sap maintenance training material, my email is mnewiraq2000@gmail.com [ more ]
Registered Member It appears to me that your production planners have it backwards. Maintenance based on condition monitoring needs to be the lead for production planning. If that can't be done because of the specifics of production (i.e. shut down takes the whole production out) than you need to have to create very fine-tuned PM procedures defined with all resources needed and a realistic time table. Place that within the SAP system in such a way, that whenever a shut-down for a specific part of the system... [ more ]

Measuring Point Work Order
Registered Member Hi, could you please send me sap training material, my email is mnewiraq2000@gmail.com [ more ]
Registered Member I think yes but your CMMS has to be connected to your DCS in which you also set the low low and high high setpoints. At the moment, will your operators doing their daily walkarounds record and raise any work order for these kinds of process parameter deviations? [ more ]
Registered Member As an example - we have a pressure regulator that we have set at 100psi, and we want it controlled to 5 psi plus/minus. You can set up a measuring point with a high limit of 105 and a low limit of 95. The measurements that you record can go up and down. But, if you record a measurement above 105, or below 95, you get a warning message in SAP. My question is - deos SAP have a process to automatically issue a Work order, based on that warning.

Registered Member Hi Francisco, My recommendation would be - Before looking at software options, investigate and outline your business, technical and functional requirements. Fit the software options (in-house or new) into your requirements, rather than fitting your requirements within the current or new software. In theory, the business deliverable of CMMS software should be adding atleast 10% value to your existing assets, so if your assets are worth $10 Million, then the value from CMMS should be $1...
