PCS-SOS: Powerful Problem Solving

Significant outages cause significant losses. Understanding the root cause of these significant outages is vital if we are to prevent them happening again.

Lauras International recommends PCS-SOS – a 2 in 1 tool designed to give an initial maintenance report into breakdowns and secondly to drive down to the root cause of the problem.

A real time investigation rather than a post-mortem, the investigation is started as soon as possible after the immediate impact of the outage has been dealt with and involves operators and engineers to give an unbiased view.

The PCS-SOS system is designed to identify weaknesses within management and maintenance systems that lead to the unplanned failure and put actions in place to ensure they cannot happen again to achieve the “100 year fix”.

Analysis of the investigations can identify trends and patterns that in turn can help to shape the creation of a Planned Preventative Maintenance program.
