Chemoxy International PSM Management of Change Case Study


Chemoxy International PSM Management of Change Case Study

1.   The Challenge

Chemoxy International is one of the largest independent contract manufacturers in Europe. Their sites in the North East of England are Upper Tier COMAH sites.

As a responsible operator Chemoxy already had a well-established Management of Change for Process Safety ( MOC ) procedure but wanted to improve the efficiency, robustness and transparency of that process.

The existing Chemoxy PSM Management of Change for Process Safety ( MOC ) process had developed over time to suit their specific business requirements and there was real business benefit in continuing to use the core principles of that process.

1.    The Challenge

PX Ltd manage the operations and maintenance of the Fellside 188 MW CHP plant providing critical process steam and electricity to the adjacent Sellafield nuclear reprocessing facility.

PX Ltd approached FoCul for a browser based solution to manage engineering change at Fellside. The system needed to provide a controlled and auditable process for managing engineering change and needed to allow engineering changes to be managed efficiently within the organisation.

The solution needed to be flexible so that lower risk changes were handled differently from higher risk changes. They also wanted a configurable solution so that workflow and risk assessments could be modified in the future.

Functionality also needed to include managing temporary modifications requiring revalidation every 3 months. Continue reading “Case Study : Management of Change for Process Safety at PX”

1.    The Challenge

ABB asked FoCul to help make their proprietary pRIME© (Process Reliability and Integrity Management Excellence) consulting process more collaborative, consistent and efficient using a software solution.

The pRIME© process requires close collaboration across multiple teams and it was difficult to do this well and consistently using spreadsheets. The volume of information collected in the studies and the detail of the subsequent reports also meant that the reporting phase of the project was very time consuming.

The solution needed to be used by ABB clients working on their own or alongside the ABB experts. It needed to manage, maintain and present large amounts of confidential data from sites globally and to present this information in a structured way to allow end users to make effective decisions.
