New hires - they go on OJT. Pagkatapos ng probationary period at na-evaluate ang performance ng OJT, pasok siya as a candidate para maging fully fucntional crew ng isang departamento (tulad ng Maintenance).
 
Kung pasa ka sa probi at ikaw ay nasa kategorya ng isang professional tulad ng engineer - may tatlong level ito bago mo matungtong ang position ng isang Supe o Manager (may hawak ng tao at may budget ka na)
 
Bawat isang level na paakyat ay may katumbas na compentcies na dapat mong ipakita at ipamalas - mostly its centered around skilled, attitudes and knowledge.
 
Decades ago, ive setup the KAS making up the competencies for Reliability Engineer from newly hired to top gun.

Katulad ng nabangit na, here where I work we practice reactive, PM, predictive and proactive maintenance activities.
 
Reactive kung equipment are non-critical (we dont make a distinction between safety and production critical equipment, although their priorities differ). PM we're making an effort to reduce it.  
 
Predictive are the norms practice for critical equipment. For rotating equipment, we have vibration surveys, lube maintenance, sound surveys atb. Sa kaso naman ng fixed equipment, we have the TML's, IR , noise survey, MFL at accoustic emission para sa tangke at kung ano-ano pa. The intent is to monitor the health of the equipment para bago ito bumigay ay napaghahandaan na.
 
Proactive are normally capital intensive prescription - the last recourse to achieve the equipment performance desired.

Training eats up a big chunk of the operating budget/expense. And you dont get the return quickly either.  
 
Its an invesment and a necessary "evil". Hindi rin nakaka-cguro ang kompanya that the guy/s theyve trained and have invested time/money will stay.

Medyo may pagkakaiba ang practice namin sa pagtutok sa spare parts or inventory. wHERE I work, Maintenance is responsible for setting up the spare parts.
 
We have three kinds - consumable, capital or investment and safety stocks. Pag-usupan muna natin yung consumable. Nahahati ito sa auto order o procure when required.  
 
Yung auto order - ang replenishment nito ay base sa frequency of usage, delivery period, order quantity, at dependability ng supplier.
 
Procure when required are normally setup for equipment flagged as critical, high value cost at long lead time.
 
Maintnenace Reliability has a big say on this since basically we're the end-users. Since equipment have already been identified as critical and performance histories documented - madali ng i-develop and maintenance task (including equipment monitoring and considition assessment) and i-setup and spares kaya madalang ang emergency work.

The big money is NOT in the O/T - its in the production output. The more reliable is the process and equipment - the better chance that the prudction target will be exceeded. More output, more sales, more profit.
 
Malaki ang kita, malaki ang bonus - as much as 6 months of pay in a year. The key is equipment reliability - and it doesnt come cheap and easy.

Can equipment failures be eliminated?  
 
All equipment experience wear and tear. So the answer is No - however it can be reduce to a level where risk is acceptable. And thats what we normally do - the focus really is the evaluation of risk againts the consequence impacting SHE and profit.
 
Since risk is associated with frequency and consequence - ang tutok o mitigation ay sa pagbaba ng probablilities of occurence. Not much can be done with the consequence.

Medyo may pagkakaiba ang kultura sa planta where I work. Its a big plant with about 500 maintenance crew and about the same number of operating personnel working in three shifts.
 
There are Indians, Pakistani, Brit, Americans and a number of Pinoys working at the plant plus the hired guns (contractors and sub-contractors). During a busy day like turnaround or capacity expansion projects, people increases to several thousand more - mix of nationalities.
 
In  a multi-cultural working environment, the usual prescription for relaibility doesnt normally work. Dont get me wrong, we are a firm believer of Nolan - we got SAP, Primavera, Intergraph and Meridium rolled out and constantly changing our mission statement and monitoring our KPI's to support the companys vision.
 
Profit is ramping up (and so is the bonus), safety performance improving year by year end. Most of the process equipment at the plant is over 25 years old and are constantly improved and monitored and plant capaciities has been increased twice to max it out.
 
And what about the maintenance culture we practiced at the plant - glad to talk more about it in the future.

To HN Gohel,
 
Pahabol. Im abit surprised na hinogot pa sa website yung noise level para sa equipment. If competencies are in place - it means na mayroon kayong formalized written procedures addressing the task/activities to be performed including the expected indicators o KPI's.
 
Our competencies are based on Job Description/Responsibilities plus our ISO written policy/procedures/work instruction. Gamit rin namin ito ito evaluate or appraise the employee perfoormance.
 
 
Regards,
Isang retirable engineer.
