The City of ST Marys, GA solicited the bids for managing the O&M for their Point Peter WWTP. Tindall Enterprises received the nod and quickly added the Pure I/O Asset Management application to their intended philosophy and methodology of Operations.
Since taking on the role of O&M, Tindall Enterprises has quickly established themselves as a wise choice for the City. The Pure I/O Asset Management product has supported Tindall in their desire to keep all assets well maintained and information flowing about the day-to-day operations of the Plant.
Tindall uses the program for all:
Job Safety Analysis
Shift Sign-In Logs
Work Order Reports
Asset Life-Cycle Analysis
Automated Equipment Notifications, when equipment needs additional attention
Automated End-of-Shift Reports
and much, much more........
The City of Quitman, GA has turned over its water and sewer management to Tindall Enterprises. Having done this, again, Tindall quickly implemented the Pure I/O program on both the Water and Sewer Departments.
Once the decision to use the Pure I/O Asset Management Program, all Asset locations were quickly visited and assessed for what may reside at each location as well as current Asset' status.
As other locations have done, The City of Quitman will be using the same scenario of processes like the City of ST Marys Point Peter WWTP.
In the assessment of Assets and conditions it was noted that some areas were of concern and TRI-SSI was asked to create a Project List of things needs immediate attention and a series of Projects for the near future.
All areas needing attention have now been identified, prioritized and projects created, thus giving the City the luxury of placing into budget a disciplined approach to excellent Asset Health for a reliable, and sustainable, future.
Having remote Lift Stations normally means a lot of personnel time driving from one station to the other to perform visual inspections. It also means that, once a station is inspected it gets left alone until the next time eyes are laid upon it, or it has an overflow situation causing the general public to react.
TRI-SSI has embarked upon moving an entire City's Sewer Lift Stations into the new age of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). Doing this allows the Sewer Lift Stations to communicate back to the Pure I/O Asset Management Program and feed real time information for the desired points to be monitored. These points include, but not limited to Basin Level, Pump On/Off Status and Pump Amperage.
Not only will the Lift Stations be monitored for real-time information but they will have the automated-intelligence to notify the necessary individuals of potential Sewer Lines stopping up due to low flows or reduced times for pumps to be normally operated. This allows for "forward" thinking and inspections of the Sewers as opposed to reactive measures due to customers call-in complaints.
Although having a really good Asset Management Tooling, like many believe they have, it was found that a customer had purchased a REALLY Expensive Work Order Program. It wasn't being utilized for Asset Management hardly at all.
TRI-SSI was asked to help identify the gaps of their expensive Asset Management program from where a true AM program should exist. And, always willing to help, we developed a strategy to systematically collect the necessary information and structure it such that it becomes useful. Also, during this period, TRI-SSI was asked to develop a strategy that would activate the existing tooling into a truer form of what it was touted to be. So, of course, we helped there, too!
At the end of the day, the customer had a program that could actually track the happenings around their assets, as well as help identify needs before they became failures. This not only helped in their production availability but also helped in their Budgeting and Forecast efforts.
All-in-All the program is now doing what it was touted to have done seven years earlier. And, reality was, it was not the programs fault but those that were tasked with implementing something they knew little about.
Don't wait for things not to prove themselves. Call us and get them proving you knew what you were implementing all along :-)
