The incumbent will oversee the administration and oversight of the PM/Calibration Program, provides technical assistance and expertise to maintenance and operations personnel to ensure compliance to PM program requirements. Identifies chronic equipment (classification based) deficiencies through analysis and reporting, performs reliability analysis to identify root cause of ongoing issue, develops, changes and initiates maintenance activities such as PM, CBM, lubrication, calibration, training and spare parts or identifies design modification projects to improve performance and equipment availability. Develops and implements equipment reliability plans that reduce the number of failures and minimizes the effects of failures that do occur. Typical “reliability plans” may include run to failure, FMEA and RCM analysis, Root Cause Analysis, calendar and run time based preventive maintenance and condition based monitoring approaches (vibration analysis, oil analysis, thermography, ultrasonic analysis and inspection routines). The incumbent is responsible for updating the criticality ranking of the assets under their care, using results from reporting and analysis, PM/Calibration activities and other sources. The incumbent will provide reliability maintenance input to project engineering design and equipment selection, provide input to capital project design with respect to equipment selection and specifications that create project approaches with minimize life cycle costs, develop procedures and specifications for the reliability maintenance aspects of existing and new equipment.
