Sample text

There are advantages and disadvantages that need to be looked at in a specific plant with the particular personnel. Once the shutdown begins however, the preparation teams take an advisory role and the executioners take over. Field Manager Some shutdowns will have a field manager who is in charge once the shutdown gets under way. The field manager works directly for the shutdown manager. Both these people are in close contact with the customer and directly oversee all activity. Their jobs are in the field, using the MBWA technique (Management By Walking Around).

On the other hand perhaps the regular maintenance crew is incompetent and the shutdown is aimed at periodical clean up of the mess. An example of bad procedures would include fixing chronic problems over and over rather than investigating the source or root cause and fixing that. Some organizations have been doing shutdowns for decades. Items appear on the shutdown list as a result of custom or traditions. How many traditional activities find their way on to your work list (items for which no one knows the reason, and everyone is afraid to remove them)?

Running a class in how to write up the “work requested” field on the work order is strongly recommended. Many people and companies have trouble with this chore (just pick up a stack of work orders and read them as an outsider would). The issue of how work requested is written up is important for day-to-day maintenance jobs and doubly important for shutdowns. Frequently the requestor 58 Chapter 9 knows what the mechanics have done in the past and writes up the request that way (such as replace valve 5J since valve 5J was always replaced in the past).
