If you’ve heard it once you’ve heard it a thousand times -- you can’t manage what you can’t measure. And how can you measure something you can’t easily see? The goal of asset management and the tools of the trade (enterprise asset management software among them) is to enable total visibility – in real time – to all your information so you can run more efficiently and grow more profitable. In a world where human assets are fewer, adopting new approaches to intelligently match limited resources with critical priorities is paramount.
Add to that the fact that the ISO 55000 Asset Management standard published last year by the International Organization for Standardization, Geneva, Switz., sets realistic expectations for asset management and defines structure and accountability for asset management best practices, it’s in every chemical processing facility’s best interest to measure and manage.
eHandbook: Proactive Approach To Improve Reliability And Maintenance
In this Chemical Processing eHandbook we take a look at proactive approaches for improving reliability and maintenance in today’s chemical plant including:
- Equipment rotation: identify damaged and worn components before they cause problems
- Advanced Reliability Management: key steps for leveraging limited resources and critical assets
- Predictive Maintenance: how detailed analysis of maintenance records can further improve equipment reliability
