Many plants have routine morning and weekly meetings to discuss equipment issues or upcoming repairs that could affect production or maintenance activities in the facility. Are your condition monitoring (CM) and reliability efforts represented in these meetings? Failure to have representation of your CM and reliability efforts in these meetings means that important information will not be conveyed to the individuals in the plant that need it most.
Your CM Manager or Reliability Engineer may have critical information to share about the health of the equipment being discussed in these meetings. Additionally, they need to be fully aware of what is happening in the facility and how their efforts may be affected.
