CF Fertilisers choose iPlan to deliver shutdowns and routine maintenance for all its UK assets in 9

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 and turnarounds.

  • 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.
