Master Data Transfer , Data Input, BOM and PM Creation
Method for Master Data Creation- Existing operations and Legacy assets
Creation and Transfer of Master Data to:
Field survey to gather name plate information, and confirm data.
Determine existing materials in inventory, and the associated Manufacturer part numbers.
Use Equipment Manuals to get accurate information, convert Parts Manuals to Excel Spreadsheets.
Build Bill of materials (BOM) using structure / nomenclature in Equipment Parts Manuals.
Locate / identify materials in inventory, and attach to BOM, Publish in computer system
Use Equipment Maintenance Manuals to determine proper maintenance procedures and intervals.
Build Preventive Maintenance plans, schedule and set up n computer system to auto generate.
Transfer legacy information in existing files.
Most accurate method of developing Bills of materials, gathering information.
Can discover existing materials in inventory. This saves time and money.
Most accurate system for developing Preventive Maintenance program.
- Time consuming to get information.
+ Most accurate method of gathering information.
- Not able to get all the equipment information if not on nameplate.
+ Can be combined with regular maintenance tasks.
System for Master Data Creation- during Project and Construction Phase
Pros and Cons:
+ The engineering staff can be a very good resource for data gathering.
+ Cooperation between Engineering and Maintenance can be beneficial if communications are effective.
+The end product can be improved if there is a good decision making and communications process.
- The information may still be in the design stage
- Working in engineering office to gather information can be difficult.
Next steps in the process for Master data Creation
Pros and cons:
+Excellent opportunity to save money and time!
+ Commissioning materials are managed by the warehouse system, and not left in the field or jobsite. Materials can be reordered automatically when signed out of the warehouse.
+ Better control of materials, and more secure access to spares and critical components. Commissioning materials can be segregated in the warehouse and managed by supply chain for use only by authorized project personnel.
+ Extra materials are easily integrated into the operational status after commissioning, the costs stay with the project, and materials can be turned over to operations/ maintenance without transfer costs.
- This takes more time and effort to set up and requires some coordination with the engineering team.
