Downstream USA unites leading innovators and decision makers as they identify, discuss, and map out future OPEX success opportunities. Add Energy’s North America team are very much looking forward to exhibiting at this year's event and connecting with the downstream and maintenance and reliability community.
The two-day event includes 4 dedicated conference tracks covering the full value chain – Future of Downstream Plenary, Reliability & Maintenance, Shutdown & Turnarounds, and Engineering & Construction. Our booth (number 619) is situated on the Reliability & Maintenance track where we will be available to discuss insights and strategies to increase equipment uptime, enhance asset reliability, and drive continuous improvement with an empowered workforce.
Below is a brief overview of the themes you will find along the Reliability & Maintenance track:
Integrating data with advanced analytics
Safe, efficient, and effective asset management is dependent on an optimized maintenance and integrity management regime, built upon reliable, structured, and quality master data. For any new or operational plant, the CMMS build is a crucial requirement that will lay the foundation for managing the maintenance, integrity, and reliability of the plant through its operational lifecycle to enhance operational capabilities.
In order to finetune maintenance strategy, enhance asset visibility and develop trust in data-based decisions, contracting an external specialist team is usually the most proficient route for many companies for a variety of reasons.
The latest tools & technology
Implementing the very best digital infrastructure can help deliver business efficiencies, optimize production and profitability, mitigate risk and even reduce the environmental impacts of operations.
At Add Energy, we have developed a suite of award-winning software designed to improve the interface between people and data, harnessing machine learning and industry 4.0 to revolutionize the way businesses operate;
- EffioTM, a specialist CMMS build software that manages the end-to-end process of a CMMS build, ensuring data is structured correctly, with maintenance and materials assigned appropriately to equipment so a fully optimized maintenance management regime can be developed and implemented.
- AssetVoiceTM, an automated change management and asset tracking software utilizing RFID technology and sensors to monitor, track, and manage mobile and critical assets from warehouses and operating assets to hospitals and equipment rental companies.
- ePAVTM, a digital data collection app that allows companies to conduct any field data collection, verification, or audit exercise with 4 times more accuracy and in half the time.
Ensuring robust maintenance strategies
Ensuring your maintenance is consistently driven by data and industry best practice helps minimize risk, maximize performance and develop an organization grounded in digital transformation efforts.
Aligning maintenance by building a suite of planned maintenance strategies is a critical part of achieving maintenance and reliability excellence. In order for maintenance to be executed correctly, scheduled efficiently, and budgeted effectively, it is important that maintenance strategies are aligned so there is a minimum standard of how to maintain common equipment types across similar applications.
Empowering your personnel
Connecting at a national level like Downstream USA helps people inspire each other and feel empowered in their work and their industry. When employees feel empowered, they create a culture that strives for excellence and drives continuous improvement efforts to achieve maximum production efficiency.
Alongside collaboration and communication, another way we have seen workforces feel empowered is through training and development programs that help them feel their employers are investing in them. To really help people understand the “why” behind the work they’re completing, we always recommend taking a holistic approach to training and viewing it as a duty of care to employees.
