The main challenges of the company services responsible for production maintenance are:
- maximizing of process units run-to-failure period by eliminating of accidents and downtimes due to equipment failures;
- minimizing of the stopping repair duration through targeted repairs of the equipment;
- reduction of maintenance costs and losses by eliminating of inefficient unscheduled and schedule-based preventive repairs.
Thus, a key performance indicator of various technologies of equipment operation (equipment maintenance strategies) is the extent of their ability to solve each of the problems mentioned above.
The analysis of ten-year experience of operation of Automated Control Systems of Safe Resource-saving operation and Maintenance of equipment (ACS SRSM™) COMPACS® at eight largest petrochemical and oil-and-gas processing enterprises shows that COMPACS® is a reliable tool for protection from technogenic accidents, which are mainly caused by the mistakes of manufacturing personnel, and an indispensable tool for prompting of efficient decisions during the planning of the scope and terms of repairs, equipment replacement and estimation of its results.
The systems are an ideal tool for monitoring of performance discipline and workmanship of the personnel. They ensure observability of condition of manufactured, repaired and exploited equipment, controllability of its quality at all stages of life cycle, stability, safety and efficiency of production.
