Following the successful completion of a PEME Maintenance Improvement Project for a client in Norway, Tony Whyman has joined the PEME Reliability Department as an Operations Manager.
Tony has extensive experience in engineering management across multiple sectors including food and aluminium and has worked on major international projects in the UAE and Mozambique. He brings a wealth of maintenance experience with him and will support our Reliability and Productivity Improvement activities across the business.
Tony will provide a key role in delivering PEME’s typical Asset Care solution which is based on the following broad approach:
- Understand contract requirement
- Identify ‘gap’ between existing Asset Care arrangements and contract requirements and produce an Action Plan for improvement (Asset Care Assessment)
- Mobilise the contract and use additional specialist PEME resource (e.g. Reliability) during the mobilisation phase to implement an improved Preventive Maintenance regime (including Condition Monitoring)
- Field required PEME engineering resource to mobilise and then recruit locally to provide a stabilised team
- Provide on-site training workshops in PEME processes and approaches and mentor the on-site team in delivery of the improved Preventive Maintenance regime
- Frequent contract reviews to drive continuous improvement – the contract is pro-actively managed by a Senior PEME Manager
- On-going support of PEME Health & Safety Manager to drive ‘positive interventions’ from a safety-perspective (tool-box talks / auditing, etc.)
- On-going support from a PEME Reliability Manager (Like Tony) to drive ‘continuous improvement’
- We are also able to bench-mark an organisations Engineering Compliance status, complete remedial recommendations and manage the on-going maintenance of compliance for the client
Head of Global Reliability, Stef Smith, said “We are always looking to improve and we intend to tap into Tony’s experience to improve our maintenance delivery and contract mobilisation performance. I wish Tony all the best in his new role and look forward to working with him.”
