RIM Best Practices

Best Practice #8: Establish a Repair Vendor Interface
Core Issues
  • Make Repair Vendors a Partner in Reliability
  • Maintains a history of repairs for each piece of equipment
  • Aggregates failures and repairs for plant areas and equipment types
  • In order to make equipment live longer the plant must understand the root causes of failure for equipment and systematically remove these failure causes
  • Critical, repairable components such as motors, pumps, hydraulic cylinders, etc. which are sent to an off-site repair vendor should be inspected for root cause of failure by the repair vendor
