IEEE – An Electrical Reliability Metric for Preventive Maintenance: Mean Time between Failure plus Finds

July 16, 2015 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Oakland East Bay IAS invites you to attend a Technical Meeting on July 16, 2015

Electrical reliability can be measured by taking a systematic approach to documenting PM (preventive maintenance) records with a metric derived from its discovery finds. These finds, however minor, are leading indicators to equipment failures. Documenting and reviewing them justifies electrical PM programs, measures PM effectiveness, and optimizes PM intervals.

It often takes the investigation of a refinery process upset due to electrical equipment failure from inadequate maintenance as the root cause, before the benefits of electrical PM are realized as good business practice. When electrical repairs and PM results are consistently collected and effectively reviewed, a measure of a refinery’s electrical reliability is realized. The result is a data set that is presentable and understandable to refinery leadership. When this metric is introduced to other refineries enterprise-wide as a comparative KPI (key performance indicator), electrical PM becomes a supported and institutionalized program that leadership identifies as paramount to business reliability. This presentation will discuss the merits of electrical PM.
