Operational Excellence in the Maintenance & Reliability

Presentation Husain Al Ali, CMRP, CAMA, GSMR Education Committee Chair

Maintenance is a series of routines, procedures and steps taken to identify and resolve potential equipment problems before they happen, improve the reliability of operations, and create opportunities to enhance the performance of the organization. Getting the maximum benefits, and the best performance out of an expensive and highly technical maintenance and reliability team is a concern shared by CEOs and technical general managers across different industrial organizations. This Workshop discusses the fundamentals required to strategize, set objectives, and align the organization focus towards achieving operational excellence in the maintenance and reliability fields.
In this educational presentation, we will discuss the methodology for helping the organization adopt a road map away a reactive culture and towards the more desired and beneficial Proactive Culture, that helps achieve reliable operations.
We will also make reference to the five pillars of the SMRP Body of Knowledge (BoK), with special emphasis on the Work Management Process Pillar, and the significant positive impact that can be expected by industry towards the achievement of operational excellence.

Some of the Benefits that can be expected through the adaptation of such a Work Management Process are:

  • Proactive Culture
  • Predictable, Improved Production and Reduced Losses
  • High Equipment Availability
  • Reduced Waste and Operating Expenses
  • World-class Worker Productivity
  • 100% Regulatory Compliance

  • High Levels of Ownership, Accountability and Cooperation
  • Empowered Teams
  • A Safe, Satisfying and Productive Work Environment
  • Process Reliability
