Operator Driven Reliability

Improving results through Operator Driven Reliability

Operator Driven Reliability (ODR) is an asset management program that involves operators in the maintenance reliability of their assets.

In order for the floor operator to become an effective tool in improving the reliability of equipment he/she must be able to predict failures before they occur through the early identification of work and problem solving capable of, that is. To develop operators with this capability there are two critical prerequisites, one the correct training, and two a reliability driven process for the failure analysis and early identification. This makes the operators highly valuable in the maintenance chain.

What is Autonomous Maintenance and Operator Driven Reliability? 

Autonomous Maintenance and Operator Driven Reliability are programs that involves operators in the maintenance reliability of their assets.  

Autonomous Maintenance is a far greater demand on engineering knowledge, maintenance skills, and work excellence than what is done in Operator Driven Reliability. 

Both programs should contribute to improve availability, operator skills and reliability 

 

What is Autonomous Maintenance?  

Autonomous maintenance (AM) is performed by the operators and not by dedicated maintenance technicians. It is a crucial component of the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). The core idea of autonomous maintenance is to provide the operators with more responsibility and allow them to carry out preventive maintenance tasks.  

Autonomous maintenance allows machine operators to carry out directly simple maintenance works (lubrication, cleaning, inspection, diagnosis) to prevent breakdowns and react faster if a certain failure has been detected.  

 

TPM and Autonomous Maintenance 

Total Productive Maintenance was developed by Japanese companies, with the ideas of preventive and predictive maintenance programs. Since TPM gives operators much more responsibilities, a dedicated training is required as well as some modifications on the machines to ease operations of cleaning and maintenance. This will significantly increase the operators’ skills level and helps them better understand how to maintain and even improve the equipment.

What are Paperless OAC? 

Paperless Operator Asset Care is OAC implemented using digitalized processes. 

OAC is a commitment by plant management, operations and maintenance to ensure that assets maintain their expected level of operability with quality and volume for output, while reaching their expected lifespan within the plant. Operator Care attempts to greatly reduce or eliminate reactive maintenance driven by skilled operators. 

OAC is generally a paper creator, but is don’t need to be that way! 

The total elimination of paper may not be feasible for all OAC activities, but even tough even a small reduction may yield cost savings and increased efficiency. There are always advantages to reducing paper usage since you will be able to: 

  • manage and find important information faster.  
  • can integrate OAC activities within EAMS/CMMS and so many other software’s that you may use to support overall usability.
