CF has made asset maintenance & plant shutdowns part of their corporate strategy, a critical means to the sustainability of their record production levels
“Within iPlan we identified the following benefits over and above Oracle, Prometheus Group and RoserConsys;
Increase tool time on plant by using the same ‘Software Systems’ and workflow for both maintenance andturnarounds.
Standardising CF’s approach & reducing CF’s reliance on individuals memories for understanding relationships between pieces of equipment
Microsoft’s excel software as a means for individuals to deviate from a standard approach
Reduce chances of equipment being missed during a planned downtime window, because the equipment’s process dependency is overlooked / unknown.
Improve business continuity from loss of equipment knowledge when personnel leave CF, at the same time through standardisation enable a planner or scheduler to work on more than one plant area.
Reduce CF users involved in the maintenance process from having to log in to CF's ERP solution to change work order status.
Ensure when a job is closed all learning is captured and presented to CF users when the asset features in a future PM or defect work order.
