Nuclear Plants and Utilities are operating on razor thin margins, and the pressure to both increase equipment reliability and reduce cost within ever shrinking operating budgets has given rise to Monitoring and Diagnostics that replace time based PMs. Collectively, there is a need to significantly improved the quality and cost-effectiveness of Monitoring and Diagnostics Centers that are tightly integrated into Work Management. This session will include presentations from utilities that are spinning up M&D centers, fine tuning existing M&D centers, integrating into Fleet M&D centers. There will also be discussion on lessons learned, and integration with Work Management, Operations and Engineering all in an attempt to increase equipment reliability at the most economical cost. Using automation to monitor critical equipment, produce automated equipment health reports, predict needed repairs and reduce the time based maintenance. Come hear about how to justify the start-up costs, establish monitoring scopes using the EPRI Cost benefit tools and COLM strategies.
