Executive Overview Workshop @ Angostura Compound, San Juan, Trinidad & Tobago

The presentation will open with a discussion about the core steps of the PROACT Investigation Management System. The workshop leader will then delve into the criteria defining a ‘thorough and credible’ RCA.

A contrast will be made between the pros and cons of the most common RCA graphical expressions (5-Whys, Fishbone Diagrams, Logic Trees).

Attendees will participate in the analysis of a basic case study, which will then be applied to the most common RCA expressions.

This will allow attendees to understand why some analytical tools are more comprehensive than others, and when each should be applied.

This session will provide the attendee a quality control checklist to use, to evaluate RCA presentations that are given to them.

The workshop will conclude with how to make an ROI business case for an RCA, so these expectations can be set for those analysts in the field.

Basic Failure Analysis @ House of Angostura

Basic Failure Analysis @ House of Angostura

Basic Failure Analysis (BFA) training is intended to provide facility personnel the
requisite skills and knowledge to eliminate the problems and chronic failures that
they are experiencing everyday on the job.
BFA is the “no frills”, get down to business, problem solving tool for those closest to
the real work.
While Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is an in-depth approach to solving higher visibility
failures BFA is about the failures-of-the-day that do not injure people, cause
regulatory concern or cost a fortune.
BFA is designed specifically by field personnel, for the field. BFA can be thought of
as a RCA Lite or 5-Whys Turbo. It is meant to adapt to these on-the-fly conditions
and not to get stalled in paralysis-by-analysis!

PROACT® RCA Method Training @ House of Angostura

This course provides an in-depth understanding of RCI’s RCA Methodology.  The course is designed to provide a detailed comprehension of how to perform RCA to achieve the maximum bottom-line results.  The attendees will learn how to physically perform an RCA on any type of failure. They will be taught how to develop recommendations for the resolution of identified causes, write a report detailing the RCA results, present their findings to management and track the progress of the recommendations implemented for failure resolution.

  • Learn how to perform RCA to achieve bottom line results and on any type of failure
  • Develop recommendations for resolution of identified causes
  • Write reports detailing RCA results
  • Present findings to Management
  • Track progress of implemented failure resolution recommendations

 

The Objectives of this training are as follows:

  • Identification of restraining paradigms and how they can prohibit finding the solution(s) to problems
  • Link problems and opportunities to chronic and sporadic events
  • Write concise failure definitions that provide a single focus point for an analysis
  • Develop a global contact flow diagram for determining failure modes
  • Identification of techniques used in the preservation of event data using the 5 P’s (Parts, Position, People, Paper and Paradigms)
  • Form an analysis team by selecting members based on synergy and whole brain thinking
  • Develop a team charter and critical success factors for the analyzed event
  • Develop the top box of the logic tree by describing the event and modes
  • Analyze the undesirable event down to its root levels utilizing the logic tree and hypothesis verification technique
  • Determine the physical, human and latent roots of the undesirable event
  • Obtain recommendation acceptance criteria from management
  • Develop team recommendations based on analysis results and findings
  • Communicate findings of the analysis and recommendations for resolution to identified causes (roots) in a meeting with management
  • Write a complete analysis report including a description of the event, how the analysis was conducted, what was learned from the analysis and correction of identified problems
  • Identification of the techniques to review the progress of recommendations selected for implementation
  • Advocate a paradigm that promotes proactive continuous improvement, using RCA as a tool

 

Your presenter will be Mr Holcombe Baird III, BSc in Mechanical Engineering & Physics. He has 30 years work experience in engineering, maintenance, reliability and consulting and is a Senior Reliability Consultant at Reliability Center, Inc. Holcombe addresses the custom needs of client companies that want to improve their operational effectiveness and efficiency with the deployment of best practices in reliability and human performance. Holcombe worked for several industrial manufacturing companies; holding engineering and management positions in production, construction and maintenance with experience in Japanese TPM principles, continuous improvement process and 5-S activities.

Essentials of Asset Management @ House of Angostura

COURSE OVERVIEW

Over the last few years, the challenges of managing physical assets have grown. This is particularly so in the Caribbean Region, faced with aging infrastructure, hyper-competitive markets, climate change, and
ever-tightening constraints on funding.

Today’s Asset Managers must integrate asset, business, risk and quality management principles to to strategically manage their organization’s assets. The modern Asset Manager is focused on integrated business processes that seamlessly harmonizes asset information across organizational silos to make appropriate asset decisions.

The ISO 55000 family of standards provides guidelines for organizations to develop sustainable asset management approaches and be able to respond appropriately to their operating contexts.

The course focuses on global best-in-class practices to holistically manage assets and optimize levels of service over their life cycles. The course content aligns with the ISO 55000 family of standards and the Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management (GFMAM’s) Asset Management Landscape. The course is designed to be multi-disciplinary, in order to foster effective cross-functional team approach in the workplace.

COURSE OVERVIEW

Asset Criticality is one of the most fundamental asset management processes. Despite this being well accepted in asset management circles, the decision-making benefits of asset criticality often leaves room for improvement. The purpose of Asset Criticality is to facilitate asset decision-making by identifying the assets that present the highest levels of exposure to the organization and prioritizing their treatment.

Asset Criticality has traditionally been thought of as a maintenance practice that measures the impact of asset failures on the organization. As Asset Managers are now realizing, consequence of failure only gives a two-dimensional view of the assets and does not paint a complete picture of organizational exposure.

This course will outline a Risk-based Asset Criticality Assessment (R-b ACA©) approach in which probability of failure, an asset-centric approach, is combined with consequences of failure to provide a three-dimensional view of the asset risks to the stakeholders. Asset risks are important because when risk events materialize, they can quickly erode profitability and other forms of value.

Based on the principles of the Risk-based Asset Criticality Assessment (R-b ACA©) Handbook, the course will provide guidelines on aligning consequences of failure to business drivers, and probabilities of failure to asset drivers. By taking this course, participants will come to see asset criticality, not as a mere maintenance tool, but as a powerful organizational decision-making tool that is to be integrated with other organizational processes.

b. R-b ACA© workshop and team formation
c. Supporting information
d. Continuous monitoring and review
e. R-b ACA© Flowchart
f. Mapping asset risk number to CMMS criticality codes
