OPERATING CONCERNS

OpSUITE Excellence

Record concerns and manage the follow up

Plant operators need to ensure that the plant is operating as intended and that all potential issues are attended to proactively.  In this context “operating concerns” are potential issues that cannot be attended to immediately and need to be assigned to another team (for example engineering, maintenance or quality control etc.).  If left unattended, these issues might escalate and affect production, cost, safety, quality or any other business-critical parameter.

OpSUITE Operating Concerns is a simple to use digital system that manages the recording of concerns and the allocation of responsibility, acknowledgement and follow-up. The result is to ensure that all issues or potential issues on the plant are proactively attended to before they affect performance.

Plant Operator

OpSUITE Operating Concerns are visible to all relevant people and can be assigned or transferred to team members in the relevant departments in a single system.

Operating concerns are easy to capture and follow up in a user-friendly system designed for typical plant environments.

People working on the plant are often in the best position to observe any production or operations related issues or potential issues that could escalate if unattended.  These fall outside the routine shift reporting and usually have to be attended to by different departments such as engineering, maintenance, quality control, etc.  These concerns need to be correctly tracked and feedback provided to ensure that they don’t escalate.  Companies that try to manage this requirement with ad-hoc solutions like spreadsheets or shared e-mail accounts soon realise the need for a more robust solution.

OpSUITE Operating Concerns is a digital system to manage the recording of concerns and the allocation of responsibility, acknowledgement and follow-up.

The result is to ensure that all issues or potential issues on the plant are proactively attended to before they affect performance.
