Event Alerts and Maintenance Teams

I spent three productive days at Maintec last month; it's not as big as it used to be, but it's still a good place to meet old friends, perhaps even a chance to gain new business. My first involvement with the Maintec gang was the 7th National Conference on Computers for Maintenance Managers, in November 1986, at the Park Lane Hotel in Piccadilly, where a crowd of 280 delegates congregated. I worked for Express Foods Group at the time and my paper was titled 'Justify Stock Control First'. The paper aimed to demonstrate the the value of computer based spares control as a way of preventing so much time being wasted searching for spares which were probably there, and then inevitably buying a pile more anyway. I do find it frustrating that 25 years later so many large factories have little spares control and 'guess' at likely values in excess of £750k. It was, and still is, down to the perceived workload involved in identifying items, which only takes a long time if you never actually start.

SITA UK rolls out Mainsaver to support best practice maintenance

SITA UK, the recycling and resource management specialists, will be extending use of Mainsaver CMMS across two additional energy-from-waste (EfW) power plants during the first half of 2012, Spidex Software has announced.

Mainsaver has been used successfully by the engineering team at SITA’s Tees Valley plant for a number of years but as UK demand for Energy-from-Waste increases, the company is looking to roll out standardised maintenance procedures across its existing and forthcoming new-build facilities.

SITA’s Energy-from-Waste plants convert ordinary household and business waste into electricity as part of a multi-site energy recovery operation that collectively produces more than one million megawatt-hours every year.
