The RAM Study can show chemical and refining manufacturers how they compare to their competitors as reliability and maintenance performance reaches previously unattained levels.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Al Poling of Solomon Associates, the leading performance improvement company for the global energy industry, will present “New Standards for Reliability and Maintenance Performance in a Global Marketplace” at this week’s International Maintenance Excellence Conference, Oct. 5-7, in Toronto, Canada.
Poling is the project manager for Solomon Associates’ International Study of Plant Reliability and Maintenance Effectiveness, or RAM Study, which uses a proprietary gap analysis to identify millions of dollars in potential margin gains through improved equipment reliability as well as millions of dollars in reduced maintenance costs.
In Toronto, Poling will discuss the RAM Study and how Solomon Associates’ Comparative Performance Analysis™ (CPA™) benchmarking uses actual operational performance data to track performance trends, to compare to others, and to identify best practices.
“Underperforming chemical plants and refineries need to understand how and where they can improve to survive, and ultimately outperform, the global competition,” Poling said.
“The RAM Study can show chemical and refining manufacturers how they compare to their competitors as reliability and maintenance performance reaches previously unattained levels. Performance thresholds have improved in response to global competition, and our study helps participants improve their bottom-line.”
