From chaos to calm with SymphonyAI Industrial methodology
Dating back to 1991, the Conoco Philips Ferndale plant had no formal vibration monitoring program and employed a reactive
approach to maintenance. The team was so busy responding to problems that required immediate attention that there was no
time to make any long term improvements. Operations had such little confidence in the plant’s pumps and motors that it was a
common expectation that even spared equipment had to be repaired and returned to service the same day. This created a lot of
machinist overtime as the team routinely spent their weekends overseeing machine failures.
