Position Summary: The primary objective is to monitor equipment condition on a continuous basis and analyze trends in order to ascertain the required maintenance interventions (mechanical, electrical, mobile equipment) necessary to maximize equipment reliability, performance and life expectancy, at the lowest possible cost, while maintaining the production functions.

Nature and Scope: The Maintenance Inspector monitors equipment condition, in part, by performing both a formal schedule of systematic inspections (PM) of plant equipment, and non-systematic inspections as required by equipment stoppages, daily incidents and pending downdays. The inspector records and analyzes data, then initiates the appropriate work orders, in order to maintain or replace equipment components so that equipment reliability and performance are maximized and costs can be minimized and budgeted properly. The majority of the work performed by the maintenance group is initiated by the Maintenance Inspector.

The Maintenance Inspector, in collaboration with the Maintenance Supervisor and Maintenance Planner, plays a key role in the development, review and modification of the formal schedule of PM activities (Master Schedule). The inspectors use Advanced Detection Techniques (Vibration Analysis, Oil Analysis, NDT ) to perform the equipment inspections along with ?5 senses? and simple measurement methods.

Following repairs and new installations, the Maintenance Inspector performs follow-up inspections and verifies tolerances in critical issues to assure compliance to acceptance standards and the PPM Guidelines. Along with the Planner, the Inspector may need to inspect repairs and/or rebuilds being made off-site, and the responsibility is shared for the quality of specialized items received by Stores.

The Maintenance Inspector is the recognized technical expert in his area of the plant and he provides advice and support accordingly. He makes most technical decisions regarding plant equipment for the Planner, and coaches other maintenance practitioners whether involved in Inspection or Execution functions. He interacts with production personnel regarding operating procedures which have an impact on equipment. He is a participant in the budgeting process and is the prime source of advice in the planning and scheduling of major maintenance activities SDL2017
