  • 1.  Reliability dashboards

    Posted 01-02-2024 09:09 PM
    Hi all,

    We ate building a reliability dashboard for our internal use. The purpose of the dashboard is to give the engineers a one place where they can do all their work.
    My question is did anyone go through the same experience? Or are you using softwares such as reliability workbench or Bi-Cycle?

    Itus Digital offers one of the most practical and effective dashboards for reliability engineers.  From one intuitive view, you can review your asset failure risk, failure mode coverage, current condition/health, and response to emerging threats in real time, anytime.

    Hi Alwaleed,

    I would caution mixing the analysis/Display functionality and the work conduct. Dashboards are good for pulling information from a lot of sources and compiling them. When done well it can help drill down to some driving factors to guide next actions. To integrate the "doing work" part of this would be a significant system development, which might not be the best use of assets/resources.

    Rather than focusing on a dashboard, I recommend focusing on where the data feeding the dashboard is being generated and standardize that first.  Rationale: a dashboard is only as good as its data. If there are structural issues with the data / compilation of the data then the dashboard reports will be fragile.

    In the first  statement, you ask about having 1 place where all engineers can "do their work", what work are you referring to? FMEAs, FRACAS, Trend analysis, Statistical process control, Root cause analyses?

    Regards,

    Cerel

    Hi cerel

    You got it absolutely right, let me share the context of my question.

    I can list almost 8 different data sources varying from standard applications to an internally developed platform where our reliability workspace is developed. This workspace includes RCM/PMO software, Maros, System1 and other wireless vibration monitors (which we use for threat and opportunities management )and we upload and findings from any investigations there actual investigations are carried out the traditional way using whiteboards and papers (this is deliberate).

    Keeping this in mind my challenge is in two areas:
    1. Data - dashboard i need to have readily available information where my engineers can make insights, analysis and ensure we have the right focus where we get maximum impact
    2. Reliability studies: RAM, RCM, PMO works we need to do on regular basis (we have plants in different stages in FEED and very old ones)

    At the moment my engineers spend a significant amount of time just on data gathering and “manipulation” to produce reports and graphs this what I ma trying hard to tackle and automate so we focus more on value added tasks…

    Alwaleed, you said the purpose of the dashboard is "to give the engineers a one place where they can do all their work".  I'd like to re-frame this by suggesting that the dashboard is a place for the engineers to CHECK their work.  The dashboard should answer a simple question, "if the engineers were successful at executing their work, how would we know?"  

    If this is what you're looking for, I could offer some useful suggestions.

    Marc,

    Thanks a lot I like the premise of the discussion and yes we want to check our metrics and to have a place were we can draw insights from the data and suggest improvements

    I would very much love to have a discussion

    Excellent.  I would enjoy that also.  I am able to meet you from around 16:00 Muscat time.  Please give me a day and time that suits you and I will send you a Teams invite.

    Warmly,

    Marc
