It hasn’t been long since a great emphasis has been put on the quality of equipment maintenance. People across all industries have come to realize the power of prediction and prevention using the experience of similar companies as a way to improve production and safety. The odds are that in order to use the compiled knowledge, each case should be aligned with a standard. This provides invaluable information for significantly better analysis and quality control of the maintenance data.
ISO 14224 is an international standard for the petroleum, petrochemical, and natural gas industries. The purpose of this standard is to establish standard taxonomy for the collection and understanding of reliability and maintenance data. In turn, this allows for better business intelligence and analytics, using software such as Wellmaster RMS, and data from organizations such as OREDA.
When creating an ISO 14224 classification, Keel analyzes each piece of equipment for location, related systems, and manufacturer design characteristics. Then, all types of equipment are classified and their performance is assessed. At this stage we create a failure classification which sorts each failure based on the mode, cause, and other data, allowing companies to avoid future incidents, and understand the root cause of the equipment failure.
First, maintenance optimization is much easier. Equipment that may be nearing failure and needs attention is easier to recognize and repair or replace.
SPIR (Spare Parts Interchangeability Records) are also easier to keep, which allows for better equipment procurement, servicing, and workflow.
And because the data of ISO 14224 is highly structured, it’s easy to use industry-wide, using programs like Welltower, and OREDA databases.
Standardized facility information exchange between plants, manufacturers, owners, etc. around the globe.
