15. What are the training requirements? The operators and maintenance craft may need additional training. This is especially true if the technology is new or not well understood. Perform a gap analysis of existing and required skills and build a training plan. All training gaps need to be completed prior to start-up. 16. What information is needed to set up the new equipment in your CMMS? Gather the information needed to properly register the asset in the CMMS. This will typically include establishing the functional hierarchy structure and adding the asset master data. The documentation will include operation and maintenance manual, drawings, equipment attributes, specifications, and bill of material (BOM) data. The PM/PdM tasks should be input to the CMMS prior to commissioning. You will likely be providing this information to your plant’s CMMS expert. 17. Will the asset use smart PdM devices? The IoT is now used extensively to support asset health. If you get involved early enough in the project, smart devices can be included in the design package. If the equipment is already purchased, consider retrofitting the design with smart PdM devices. You can partner with an IoT service provider to set up, access and analyze data from sensors and devices, and convert them into actionable instruction. Read " What does it really mean to be a reliability engineer today? " 18. What are the spare parts requirements? You as the RE will be responsible for identifying any critical spare parts and defining spare parts quantities. The criticality of parts is primarily based on their impact on production process or employee safety if they fail, and on the lead-time for ordering. High-criticality parts need to be held on site as insurance spares. For low-criticality parts, start with recommended OEM parts and stocking levels. Partner with materials management to optimize quantities. 19. What are the plans for continuous improvement?

Establish a process to evaluate whether or not the new asset is meeting the project reliability requirements and define appropriate action to close performance gaps. Trend these metrics and use root cause analysis if the performance doesn’t meet requirements or deteriorates over time. 20. Is there a plan for decommissioning and disposal? Describe the processes involved to decommission and dispose of assets due to aging or changes in performance and capacity requirements. Considerations for these processes include: Environmental impact of disposal Land rehabilitation Residual value of assets Continued service delivery Human resource plans As a reliability engineer you already have enough to do without adding bad actors to your workload as a result of poor planning and misuse of resources. Ask these 20 questions to ensure high reliability, minimum costs, and long equipment life.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
