This webinar will outline the approach taken to improve spares inventory management and sparing requirements within a client’s computerised maintenance management system. Reviews of materials for each equipment item (bills of materials) were necessary, and where required the client’s master list of materials was updated to capture attributes and specifications of missing materials. Having established the completeness of the bills of materials, maintenance procedures were used to identify relevant spare parts required for planned maintenance at each equipment location. The final stage of the project involved optimising spare material quantities using analytical methods, to minimise under- or over-ordering for maintenance materials. To carry out this analysis, equipment criticality ratings needed to be determined using a high-level failure modes, effects and criticality assessment (FMECA).

The project covered three maintenance regimes: preventive, corrective and on-condition maintenance.

The webinar includes the value added to the client by optimising spares for a hydrocarbon processing plant.
