Nihar Associates was employed to provide operation readiness support for our client’s Ore Car Repair Shop (OCRS). This facility is semi-automated and run as a production line, presenting unique challenges for its maintenance and operations procedures.

As part of this project, Nihar Associates reviewed vendor documentation, developed operating and maintenance strategies, validated bills of materials, identified spares and tooling, and created work instructions and SAP upload information.

Overall Nihar Associates were able to:

  • Review and update a range of vendor documentation according to Nihar Associates’ maintenance recommendations.
  • Write and validate over 1,000 work instructions for the OCRS, including those for process equipment and site infrastructure.
  • Identify and rationalise the spares, tooling, resources, and lubrication required to maintain over 100 unique pieces of equipment.
