Maintenance Mgmt for a Thermal Power Plant - question


Thread Starter

K Karthikeyan

We are in the initial phases of an "Automated Maintenance Management system"
for a thermal power plant. We plan to utilise the plant status from
available DCS signals. Tasks identified so far are
-Preventive maintenance scheduling
-Work permit generation
-Workflow monitoring
-Contract monitoring
-Inventory tracking/Procurement note initiation
-Equipment degradation analysis
-MIR generation

I request the members suggest possible activities to append to this list.

Regards & TIA
Suggest you contact leading MRO sofware vendors and request product presentations.
Softwares like Maximo would be a good bet.
These applications have industry best practices embedded within, so you would be off to a good start.

Dear Karthkeyan

Apart from the above mentioned objective you should use SPC/SQC package also, which also is
added to your plant productivity schedule.STOCHOS have very good package both for
SPC/SQC & maintainance & planning schedules , with
functions you have specified.Very economical &
important issue is STABLE package.They both have
network & standalon version.
