"Ensuring zero surprises and downtime with predictive analytics"

Abstract

Maintaining critical equipment to ensure high levels of reliability, availability, and performance is a primary focus of process engineers in every plant today. The amount of data an engineer needs to analyze effectively is growing steadily as industry incorporates digital technology. Challenging plant economics frequently dictate relentlessly increasing operational demands on ever-aging critical equipment. At the same time, staff budgets are shrinking, experienced people are retiring, and new staff need experience to maintain asset health efficiently. Maintaining efficient operation of aging assets is increasingly costly, while plant economics are challenged by budgets, experienced staff retirements, and training new staff. Technology exists to facilitate prediction of asset failure, allowing engineers to target maintenance costs more effectively. Real-time systems focused on this area of equipment-health monitoring are frequently referred to as equipment condition monitoring (ECM) or predictive asset management (PAM) systems.

Machine learning in predictive maintenance: trends, challenges, and applications

Abstract

Condition monitoring, a critical aspect of industrial operations and an important part of predictive maintenance, involves continuous assessment of machinery and equipment to detect potential failures early. Machine learning (ML), on the other hand, is as a subset of artificial intelligence (AI), which is revolutionizing various industries by enabling systems to learn from data, identify patterns, develop inferences, and make informed decisions with minimum human intervention. The integration of ML with condition monitoring forms the backbone of predictive maintenance, a proactive approach aimed at predicting equipment failures before they occur, thereby reducing downtime and maintenance costs. This session aims to discuss the challenges and current state of this technique in the field of research, and the significant role of integrating ML with condition monitoring in enhancing predictive maintenance, laying the foundation for understanding how these concepts interrelate. Aside from exploring some practical applications of this technique across various industries, the discussion will also highlight a study that emphasizes how ML model can predict the Coefficient of Performance (COP) of similar refrigeration equipment, as a practical way to integrate ML to condition monitoring. This approach offers a reliable early warning system for potential performance degradation. The accuracy and predictive capabilities of this model underscore its value in maintaining optimal operational efficiency and minimizing unexpected downtimes. Overall, the presentation aims to demonstrate the transformative potential of ML in condition monitoring, positioning it as an indispensable component of modern predictive maintenance strategies.

Synergizing Data Science with Operations and Maintenance of Hydroelectric Plants

Abstract

“Beyond being a Renewable Energy company, SN Aboitiz Power (SNAP) believes that being a sustainable company means ensuring value is created and shared among its stakeholders. As of January 2024, we have three impounding hydroelectric plants (HEPs), a run-off river (ROR), a battery energy storage system (BESS), and a solar facility. The floating photovoltaic (FPV) is partially providing the energy requirements of the SNAP-Magat office and is not yet commercialized. The HEPs and BESS plants are providing services to customers and the grid. Having primarily hydro plants means production planning relies on an intricate understanding of hydrology and competency in forecasting, optimization, and risk management. SNAP implements a number of upskilling initiatives intended to enrich the organization’s existing capability and help employees acquire new skills required by the business, strategic directions, or challenges posed by digitalization and technical evolution. The company is sponsoring Lean Six Sigma (LSS) and Data Science Upskilling Programs (DSUP) to team members to further nurture the digital acumen and explore possibilities to realize the value in our day-to-day operations. Today, 28 Capstone Projects are on the pipeline and 25% of which is from the 12 Citizen Data Scientists of the Operations and Maintenance group. “

Optimising Fleet Replacement with a Risk Based Approach

Abstract

Maintenance has been the backbone of majority if not all the industries today that provide the basic necessities, services, and requirements of the general population. Maintenance helps keep the industrial facilities and equipment up and running. Highly complex Industrial Plants and facilities in the Philippines require high reliability and availability amidst tough and challenging business environments and become better prepared to survive difficult and crippling economic challenges similar to the COVID-19 pandemic. Implementing Mechanical Integrity Programs coupled with Industrial Plant Inspection will help ensure that assets / equipment in an industrial plant will be able to provide the required performance in a safe, environmentally friendly, and reliable manner. These will help create more sustainable industrial businesses that will survive tough and difficult business environments and aid in lowering operational expenses by avoiding equipment failures and damages that may lead to unplanned plant shutdowns and unit shutdowns. The essence of the term “Mechanical Integrity” can be described in many ways and focuses more on how mechanical and structural systems are operated, inspected, tested, and maintained. This ensures that equipment are fit for service to avoid loss of containment and structural integrity. Programs developed for Mechanical Integrity help prevent incidents, maintain productivity, and maintain the economic viability of Industrial Plants and facilities. Inspection on the other hand is defined as “the practice of examining the physical condition of materials, components, or entire pieces of equipment in order to determine if and for how long it will operate as intended”. It supports the management of Process Hazards and Mechanical Integrity Programs through conduct of various inspection activities and helps assure the quality and mechanical integrity of equipment/assets during fabrication, installation, operation, and maintenance. Both Mechanical Integrity Programs and Inspection activities rely heavily on RAGAGEPs (Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices). These are established codes, standards, published technical reports, or recommended practices that provide guidance for activities related to engineering, operations, and maintenance. RAGAGEPs have been accepted by the consensus of industry and technical organizations. This presentation will provide more insights and more information about Mechanical Integrity and Industrial Plant Inspection that conference participants can use to develop or improve their current practices.

Geese Mentality: Transitioning Filipino Engineers to Global Leaders

Abstract

“Subject Matter: Geese Mentality: Transforming Filipino Engineers to Global Leaders The Geese Project’s mission is to develop the next generation of global leaders by transitioning them from the Crab Mentality to the Geese Mentality. Based on the ground-breaking culture-based leadership approach that integrates the impact of parental upbringing, educational environment and societal norms, the Geese Project is a Filipino-centric leadership program that will transform Filipino engineers to world-class leaders by mastering the Geese Project 12 Leadership Traits. Its PCAF Quadrant model highlights which traits Filipinos are naturally good at (Power Traits), which traits Filipinos are naturally weak at (Challenge Traits), which traits Filipinos already have one key component (Aspirational Traits) and which traits are the most critical from which other traits are built on (Foundational Traits). The key to becoming a global Filipino leader is harnessing these traits. What is the “Geese Mentality”? The natural flying behaviors of the Canadian Geese serves as a powerful metaphor for effective team management and leadership, emphasizing collaboration, shared responsibility, mutual support, and the importance of positive encouragement within a group. It is only by adopting the Geese Mentality and transitioning from the traditional Crab Mentality, can Filipinos overcome the ‘leadership skills gap” and harness their full potential as world-class leaders. Target Audience: • Mid-Senior Business Leaders • Emerging Managers • Project Managers • Team Leaders Objectives: • Uncover why Filipino engineers keep hitting the “leadership ceiling” in the global stage. • Gain a deeper understanding of how culture-based leadership will transform Filipino engineers to world-class leaders. • Discover how you can break free from legacy mentality that negatively impacts your effectiveness as a Filipino leader. • Harness your strengths and weaknesses as a Filipino leader, that will enable you to effectively lead your team to peak performance. • Learn how to adopt sustainable leadership character transformation, versus short term behavior modification. The Geese Project has been presented to the Association of Filipino-Canadian Engineers (AFCE) with overwhelming positive response due to its ability to teach the “right mindset” in becoming a world-class Filipino leader. Based on an actual survey, 82% of Filipino-Canadian Engineers feel that Filipino are under represented in the Engineering and Construction industry. “The Geese Project can definitely help us change our mindset to be successful in our field of specialization.” – Dave Estrella “
