Bad Actor Programme Elimination

Published on the January 23, 2022 in Engineering & Manufacturing

About this project


This analysis will surface a collection of “Top 10 Bad Actors.” At this point, a critical decision is needed. Are we going to work together to gather data and fix the problem permanently or just talk about it in our silos?

Project overview

In most plants, the 80/20 or 90/10 rule applies: 10 to 20 percent of the equipment causes 80 to 90 percent of the losses. In order to root out bad actors, both data analysis and collaboration are required. In general, the operations personnel are the owners of the equipment and the operators are the first line of defense, observing equipment performance on a continuous basis. It’s important that the operator maintains constant vigilance over the equipment using visual observation, distributed control system (DCS) information, and hand-held data collectors. When issues such as leaks, odd sounds, excessive vibration, etc. Are noted, or operation is outside the plant operating window, it is incumbent on operations to bring in other resources from engineering, maintenance, and inspection to evaluate the issue. Unfortunately, changes in daily operations and process conditions are not always communicated effectively. Oftentimes these issues cause repeat failures and, through Pareto analysis, can be grouped by frequency, cost, and outage duration.
