Maybe that is true. It is not impossible yet I'm not sure if you are serious in this post.

My point is simply to ask if the KPI of your organization considers both costs and savings OR only the bright side (savings)? Assume I work for/with you and I made a wrong call and the vibration was not resolved for 2 days while the same maintenance people were busy with me. Is this case included in the KPI and counted on the annual calculations?

I have had a hard time on this forum understanding the tone of many people. Its most definitely the age demographic. I don't know if boomers or even gen-xers think about how tone comes across as text on the internet. There is a huge difference in perception of Dave's comment just by adding a [cool], [tongue] or [wink]. Emoticons/Emojis are powerful tools, don't be afraid of 'cheapening' your responses by using them.

Sincerely,

A Millennial.

I must say I on initial impression I took DDanes comment as a Clint Eastwood esque snarl.....
But then again text is rubbish at putting across any sort of emotion.

I agree tone is hard to figure out. So when somebody asks a question on this forum about a KPI for savings and I share what that is and get a bunch of flak for the numbers my company supplied our group to use it makes me think. Don't ask the question if you have all the answers. As far as wrong calls on a mis-alignment............................cmon really? I have had missed calls where things sneak up and bite us but wrong calls not so much. And as far as cost savings the numbers we use are conservative in the Industry I work in. [smile]

We don't do it, it's been done before re-creating the departement 6 years ago and it was many millions saved by year.


I don't consider the elimination of predictive maintenance as a realistic possibility in my company despite what reliability "experts" are saying. The competition for me come from consultants or online systems, for that it's just my costs that really mather. Consultants are much more expensive (in big part because of travel expenses) and online systems require big investments that are not realistic here. Capex is pretty much a forbidden word.

In another thread, I guess someone mentioned that he returned to job after retirement. If he was with us, he would offer his opinion, I assume.

DDane, can we revisit your post? I think some of us misunderstood that.

"We have a KPI that is calculated using 600 dollars per man hour charged to a Work Notification we generated to repair or replace a asset we called with any of our PDM Technologies. So if I call out an alignment and it takes 2 Mechanics a combined 4 hours to do that work. Our department is credited with a 2400.00 save if the work is done on a scheduled outage."

I've never seen it approached the way I *think* this means. So the longer a repair takes, the more savings the program is credited with? Are they saying that "repair dollars spent" is equivalent to "avoided costs"? That's an interesting idea. Am I understanding it correctly.

And I agree that us old codgers are hesitant to use emoticons (or is it "emojis"?)... Just seems kinda silly (though I use them all the time in texting my wife and grown daughters). Perhaps we need better emoticons... I'll speak to the site staff. Also, the emoticons are not available unless you are replying on a PC (or at least not in iOS).


But more importantly, I would urge everyone to.... relax. No one here means anyone any harm. We all genuinely like each other I think. So if you think someone is being rude or whatever, just ask them. Either on the board, or private message. Just don't make assumptions about another's "intent".
