Challenges

1

Compliance

Have operator rounds been performed completely and by-the-book?

2

Standardization

Do the procedures comply with regulations? Are they applicable to the same equipment, irrespective of plant location?

3

Understanding

Does the operator understand the problem and work according to checklists?

4

Flexibility

Integration of planned and unplanned activities in regular digital checklists.

5

What to Inspect?

Determination of inspector objectivity, jurisdiction and independence.

6

Data Integrity

Quality, accuracy, objectivity and consistency issues related to manually recorded, paper-based data collection not built from standardized checklists.

7

Data Availability

Data Availability

8

Complexity & Risk

Increasingly complex equipment and plants, higher demands for quality and safety, and expectation to complete operator rounds quickly

Solution

The Mobideo Platform offers a paradigm shift in operator round procedures by digitalizing workflows, forms and checklists. Integrating with existing systems of record such as schedule and EAM/APM/CMMS solutions, it rapidly digitalizes unique inspection know-how and content captured from operational documentation (such as manuals, SOPs and checklists) and then integrates it in existing planned and scheduled operator round activities as actionable tasks and digitalized checklists that can be dispatched to operators and teams in real-time. This digitalization delivers three important solutions:

Connected Workers

The Mobideo App enables operators to dynamically populate task content and digital checklists using any mobile device, including the capture and addition of photographs, barcodes and annotations. Furthermore, it ensures that inspectors only inspect what is necessary – according to standardized procedures and regulatory compliance – since the operator round tasks are specific to the type of inspection and the equipment being inspected, eliminating boilerplate templates and one-size-fits-all checklists.

Connected Manager

The Mobideo Control Center turns both planned and unplanned operator round activities into digitalized tasks and checklists that are dispatched to workers in the field. Enabling the real-time tracking of operator round progress and compliance, it also supports the creation of unplanned operator round activities generated in response to alerts/warnings displayed in real-time on digital wallcharts and dashboards; the automatic creation of operator round reports; and better decision-making and management of resources.

Process Optimization

The Mobideo Optimizer captures all data from the Mobideo App and the Mobideo Control Center, generating a rich set of reliable operator round data that is available for immediate analysis and for use in real-time digital wallcharts. This valuable data serves a range of purposes – such as KPI measurement, creation of real-time reports, evaluation of how operator round tasks are actually being executed and identification of trends and work patterns – that drive continuous process improvement and strengthen operational excellence.

Benefits

Regulation-compliant standardization of paperless operator rounds through digital checklists

Provides digital checklists of relevant tasks in advance, ensuring accurate and consistent procedures for the uniform execution of operator rounds involving the same equipment in plants around the globe.

Digitalized results and paperless inspection execution and reporting

Increase in productivity and elimination of out-of-date, paper-based schedules, documents and information, manual reporting and human errors, ensuring streamlined, paperless, efficient and accurate execution and reporting of operator rounds.

Real-time availability of inspection data in one location

Availability of all relevant operator round documents, pictures and results on a mobile device eliminates paper trails and ensures immediate access to the most up-to-date versions of reference material.

Improved safety and more reliable results

Specific digital safety checklists adapted to each operator round task, inspector and equipment reduces the likelihood of possibly dangerous safety shortcuts and increases the reliability of results.

Accountability and traceability

Always know who did what, and when.

Capture of knowledge and best practices

Digital capture of operator round data ensures the retention of knowledge and the consistent execution of tasks at the same high standard.

Real-time visibility for efficient management and insightful decision-making

Real-time visibility provides valuable insights – such as when operator rounds are falling behind – and enables immediate, proactive intervention, including the reassignment of resources to meet changing needs.

Automatic compilation of operator round data in dashboards, databases and final reports

Operator round data automatically populates compliance reports, KPIs and dashboards to drive continuous improvement and analytics, eliminate data transposition and associated errors, and improve the quality of data in systems of record.

Streamlined flow of real-time information from discovery to change management

Automated review, sign-off and approval of operator round work eliminates the need for stakeholders to be onsite for review and approval.
