About the Presentation

According to a study presented at the 2004 European Federation of Corrosion, approximately 35 cents of every maintenance dollar is spent on fixed equipment and 55% of that cost is spent on piping equivalent to about 20 cents of every maintenance dollar. However, it isn’t uncommon to struggle to develop and maintain asset strategies for piping due to lack of guidance, resource attention and inaccurate data. This leads us to ask the question; what does it really take to have successful piping strategies?

In this presentation Lewis will walk through a four-step process to develop effective and efficient piping program strategies to optimize cost, focus resources and drive business impact including:

      1. Understanding Your Current State
      2. Leveraging Holistic Risk Based Management to Identify a Fit-For-Purpose Approach
      3. Developing a CML Placement and Management Strategy
      4. Implementing and Evergreening Your Program
