29 The consequence table also allows the team to clearly distinguish between the urgency of work, the importance of work, and the type of work. We have found that some prioritization systems have a confusing array of priorities. One of the most abused is the safety priority, with the inference that anything marked "safety" takes precedence over all else. So everyone uses "safety," attempting to get their work done ahead of everyone else. The table helps them understand (and then explain to others in the plant) why repainting yellow lines does not automatically trump back-up pump repairs. Safety is a category of work with priorities that fit into the overall prioritization scheme, just as "shutdown" is a category of work, not a priority. It is designated as Priority 3 (planned and scheduled). Requestors may or may not know that a piece of equipment has to wait for a shutdown. But the planner/scheduler will find out. It is best not to burden the requestor. The Prioritization Tool The team summarizes their work in a simple decision table. This provides every requestor in the plant with a quick reference guide to identify the priority of their requests. Once developed, the team tests out the table's usability by running numerous scenarios through it before implementation. These scenarios will also be part of the implementation training for rolling out the prioritization system. Figure 2 was developed by that same pipeline company. Organize It A s d e s i g n co n t i n u e s , t h e te a m t u r n s to organizational roles and responsibilities. Who should determine the priority on work requests? Which crews should get what priorities? The requestor is in the best position to identify the priority using the decision table. The requestor is at the location of the problem. If there is an error in prioritizing, maintenance cannot change the priority. This has implications for the working relationship between maintenance and requestors. If maintenance can just change priorities, particularly without consulting the requestor, the requestor's perception is that maintenance is the only one not following the rules. This can lead to a breakdown in the relationship between maintenance and the requestor, affecting overall performance. We have found that establishing a maintenance coordinator in the requesting organization greatly facilitates the process of setting maintenance priorities. The coordinator has the knowledge and credibility to verify priorities, authorize work, and coordinate any necessary outages before it goes to maintenance. Priorities 1 and 2 will still occur in world-class processes. Maintenance crews will still get interrupted. Break-ins will still happen. There are work environments where equipment interruptions are historically constant, for example, weaving looms and spinning operations. There are a great number of identical pieces of equipment, with minor problems, that can take an individual loom or spinner down. This is the environment where shift maintenance works best. SAFETY ENVIRONMENT PRODUCTION PRIORITY Immediate severe physical danger Immediate danger of permanent damage Critical production scheduled but stopped with no backup 1 Immediate physical danger Discharges of product on ground Production schedule and running on backup or production slowed 2 Low risk of physical danger Discharges of product on ground Asset failed or failing without affecting critical production 3 Figure 2 WWW.SMRP.ORG 10127-4056 SMRP Solutions SE.indd 29 8/22/16 9:43 AM http://WWW.SMRP.ORG
