The focus of the Reliability Technician is to analyze and develop predictive (PdM) analysis methods for monitoring plant equipment and determining the reliability of process equipment. The Reliability Technician utilizes these predictive (PdM) technologies to acquire and analyze data in order to determine the cost advantage of alternatives, develop action plans to comply with internal and external customer demands, and make recommendations for improvement in order to avoid failures, improve runtime, improve asset utilization, and increase OEE. In addition, the Reliability Technician prepares calculations, diagrams, charts, drawings, and other documentation using PdM software packages and writes a formal report based on the acquired data. When failures do occur, the reliability technician conducts failure analysis of the equipment and investigates the failure in order to determine the root cause for the particular problem. Based on the root causes the technician makes recommendations for improvement considering the cost limitations, up/down time, repair costs, replacement costs, weight, size, and availability of materials and equipment in order to return the equipment to OEM specifications. Other responsibilities include but are not limited to creating, updating, and/or modifying equipment information in SAP and other PdM software tools and Microsoft Office Suite applications.
