Harnessing proven training solutions to enhance skill and ability within your maintenance and reliability workforce

Harnessing proven training solutions to enhance skill and ability within your maintenance and reliability workforce

Training is often one of the first budgets to be sacrificed during corporate cost-cutting initiatives, and although it will deliver immediate cost reduction results, a lack of investment in this area is proven to lead to increased risk and spend later on.

To hold on to training budgets, or obtain new training budgets amid a cost-conscious environment it is important to correctly identify and prioritize training programs based on the perceived risk of not providing adequate competency assurance initiatives.

Last month, Add Energy’s Afia McClenaghan hosted a panel discussion with senior asset management professionals on how to drive performance and optimize costs through upskilling initiatives.

During the event, leaders from international energy producers including Canlin Energy, BP and Keyera Corporation discussed real-life challenges relating to this topic and shared proven tactics they would recommend for unlocking the potential of your maintenance and reliability workforce.

A step-by-step guide to developing and enriching your Bill of Materials (BoMs)

21 Jun 2021

A step-by-step guide to developing and enriching your Bill of Materials (BoMs)

Accurate and reliable equipment and maintenance Bill of Materials (BoMs) are crucial for assuring the correct equipment, with the correct specifications are procured in a timely and cost effective manner. A highly functional BoM will include a comprehensive list of materials, components and instructions required to build, replace or maintain a piece of equipment. 

When BoM data is incomplete, outdated or incorrect, this can incur costly issues that could very easily be avoided. Focusing on enriching and verifying your BoM data is proven to unlock significant efficiency gains across the entire operations of a plant, and should be one of the first steps that plant operators should consider when looking for opportunities to improve performance. 

We recently caught up with Iain Wood, Add Energy’s Materials Manager, who has shared key insights from the world of BoM development and enrichment. In this blog, Iain shares advice on how to recognize indicators that could signify the need to improve your BoMs, the benefits of doing this, and a proven, step-by-step process to follow for developing and enriching your BoM data for optimal return on investment (ROI).

What are the common signs and symptoms that could signify the need to improve your BoM data?

  • “Holding obsolete stock - Holding parts for equipment that is no longer required could result in having significant capital tied up unnecessarily. A big cause of this is equipment becoming obsolete, and BoMs not being updated to reflect this condition change. When this happens, the part is believed to be still required and will tie up valuable space and resources to store and preserve it in the warehouse.
  • “Inflated procurement costs - On the other end of the spectrum, if equipment has never been identified as part of a BoM, but is actually required, this can result in direct purchasing from manufacturers at the last minute, as they are not readily available in the inventory. It is common for last minute orders to be required at short notice, and this is often reflected in the cost. Expediting orders in this way is extremely inefficient, costly, and can also cause delays in maintenance and extended periods of outage.
  • “Holding excess stock - Equipment manufacturers, vendors or EPC contractors tend to often recommend as many spares as possible be included in a BoM, as they will make profit from this. To avoid being left with surplus stock and tying cash up unnecessarily, these recommendations should go through a 3rd party review and verification process whereby the SPIRs/SPILs are reviewed by both the plants materials and maintenance specialists, to determine what is actually required for your specific plant.

What are the benefits of developing and enriching BoMs?

“Well maintained BoMs should provide a source of truth for multiple teams across the business, and provide a reliable list of spares required to effectively maintain and operate equipment throughout its lifecycle. They are ultimately the foundation for smooth, efficient operations, with significant benefits felt across inventory, maintenance and procurement teams.

Inventory and procurement-related benefits:

  • Assuring the correct spare is ordered
  • Minimizing the need for direct purchasing and last minute orders, which saves costs
  • Reduction of excess inventory 
  • Potential to sell spares that are not required, and get money back or credit notes for vendors
  • Reducing rental costs and warehouse footprint, if less spares are required
  • The ability to easily determine if non-moving stock is required for an active asset
  • The ability to identify similar items or equipment where individual materials can be standardized or substituted

Maintenance-related benefits:

  • Faster and accurate execution of both planned and unplanned work
  • Less preservation maintenance required, as there is less stock
  • Minimized risk of shutdowns
  • Ability to plan maintenance effectively, assuring the right spare is available for maintenance 
  • Avoid delays in maintenance, causing unhealthy maintenance backlog

The step-by-step process to developing and enriching BoMs:

“A BoM development and enrichment project is a timely and resource heavy initiative to run internally. For plant operators who want to unlock the benefits associated with accurate and reliable BoM data, but don't have the resources internally to do this, outsourcing this work to a team of specialists is a highly efficient option.

“In addition to shifting the burden of the work to an external specialist, this tactic can also bring additional benefits relating to cost, turnaround time and quality. 

Achieving safety integrity assurance and performance excellence through a data-driven maintenance improvement project

Achieving safety integrity assurance and performance excellence through a data-driven maintenance improvement project

A high performing plant is one that is safe, efficient, reliable, and profitable and there are many critical success factors that come into play when it comes to striving for excellence.


The philosophies cascading into the management systems and processes influences all 4 elements of what it takes to be a high performer. Without a meticulously designed and executed CMMS resulting from this, plants are subject to increased risk of equipment failure, loss of production, and excessive maintenance costs – which will directly impact the safety integrity and performance of the plant.

To truly optimize a plant’s maintenance and materials regime and unlock the associated benefits that come with it, it is key to build this regime using reliable, structured, and quality master data. Realizing the need to have this in place, Add Energy were contracted by an international energy company to deliver a global maintenance optimization project where we were tasked with enriching the CMMS data and optimizing the maintenance management regime, and associated spare parts in excess of 1.3 million equipment tags.

The challenge

To assure the right level of preventative and predictive maintenance and inspection, on the right equipment, was being done with the right materials, at the right time – no more, no less. Achieved through:

The top 4 barriers preventing your ability to achieve efficient warehouse management

The top 4 barriers preventing your ability to achieve efficient warehouse management

Efficient and effective warehouse management relies on good quality and accurate data, fit for purpose processes and technology and a competent team. When any of these key success factors are compromised, a business is likely to experience:

  • Wasted expenditure
  • Time delays
  • Production deficits
  • Poor productivity
Iain Wood is the Materials Manager at Add Energy and throughout his 30+ year career in the materials sector, he has gained firsthand experience of the headaches and issues that can occur when striving to effectively manage and track down items in a warehouse. In this blog, Iain discusses the main barriers that could be preventing you from achieving efficient and effective warehouse management, and the impact these challenges can have on a business when they are not managed correctly.

1. Poorly managed preservation maintenance

“For some items, preservation maintenance is required to assure they function as they should when they are required.

“The requirements for conducting preservation maintenance can make it difficult to keep track of the locations of critical items due to the maintenance log needing to be manually updated on a regular basis to reflect their condition change, I.e., their location or maintenance being completed. Some businesses may have specialist workshops miles away from the main warehouse, meaning stock that requires specialist preservation maintenance is subject to movement and therefore loss of control.

“If these condition changes are not updated in the digital inventory management system, or CMMS, this may result in items not being able to be located, confusion on whether it is available for use and exposure to risk, because the warehouse team are unsure if the item is safe for use because there is no record of it being maintained whilst in the warehouse, as per its requirements.

“In addition to this, in my experience, poorly managed preservation maintenance can also cause stock to perish quicker over time because there are no triggers or notifications for maintenance requirements, which may result in premature failure of equipment once installed and the need to replace the part at late notice, at a premium price point.”
