Management and Leadership
For management, a database is only as good as the information it provides. In order to drive continuous improvement activities, the manner in which that information is assembled and provided is critical.
iReliability™ not only gives you the standard reporting you expect (from end user to corporate level), but it also delivers custom KPIs and integrates all data and results in convenient, intuitive reports that enable the user to see the big picture of reliability in their facility.
Avoid tying up your organization with manually calculating mountains of Key Performance Indicators (KPI). iReliability™ assists you by giving you the tools necessary to build your own custom KPIs so that you can build the KPIs that are meaningful to your organization and are specific to the goals you are trying to achieve. The Custom KPI feature within iReliability™ assists organizations in creating KPIs and displaying ‘one version of the truth’ all in one comprehensive dashboard.
Asset Health Report
An Asset Health Report is the cornerstone measurement of the Reliability Initiative. What percent of the assets are healthy, or code GREEN? The key to the Asset Health Report is identifying all of the appropriate inspection methods that need to be applied, at what frequency, and what alarm criteria to apply, i.e. the PdM program design. Utilizing the Asset Health Report, the user can instantly see where he/she stands from a healthy versus unhealthy standpoint. From here, the user can drive the necessary workflow to achieve the desired results.
Integrated Fault Entry Report
Planning and scheduling repair work can be challenging when you have multiple fault identification strategies in place. Inspection results are being delivered at different frequencies and this information can be very difficult to correlate. The end result is that you lose the power of the information that you have in your hands. Multiple inspection methods may be identifying the same failure mode, telling you that you have an issue with a critical piece of equipment. Being able to integrate and view this information is a crucial step in deciding how to attack and correct to problem. Not having this ability results in missed opportunities and a lag in planning and scheduling repairs that may be critical in nature, compromising your assets and your productivity. iReliability™ gives users the ability to integrate and view all fault entry information, for all database locations, in a single report. The Integrated Fault Entry Report allows a user to see analysis comments and repair recommendations, as well as any illustrations that have been provided to fully communicate the identified defect.
What makes a Reliability Initiative successful? More importantly, what information should you track to measure or gauge that success? Knowing where you have been, where you are, and where you are going is not as difficult as it may sound. iReliability™ has developed a Monthly Scorecard that is built around a specific set of metrics that will assist in determining the progression of your Reliability program. The key components of the Monthly Scorecard are centered around the health of your facility (Asset Health), identified faults and the mitigation of those faults, and the efficiency of your inspection methods coverage (route adherence). You will be able to track and trend Asset Health to see how the health of your facility has been improving or declining over time.
Condition Assessment Assignments
When you have multiple inspection strategies in place and the results of those inspection strategies are coming from multiple sources, your ability to maintain some form of ‘standardization’ in terms of reporting becomes difficult to manage. Report formatting, nomenclature, and what information is or is not included on an inspection report are all issues that can add to confusion, inefficiencies, and loss of critical data. iReliability™ utilizes a single job creation and reporting interface that is used regardless of which inspection strategy is deployed. The result is standardized reporting that ensures you get the same results and set of information each and every time you view a report.
There may be times when a user wants a specialized set of data that is not available in a standard report or a user may want to compare information from multiple databases. Data needs also change over time. What was an issue or priority last year may be a non-issue today. We have new priorities and issues to resolve all of the time. To address this issue, iReliability™ has an added feature that allows users to create custom ‘Data Mining’ reports by specifying which sets of data they wish to query in the database. If your organization has multiple facilities or business units, you will be able to create Data Mining reports at the single plant level, across a business unit, or across the entire organization.
