Abstract:At the Nouryon site in the Botlek the documentation program Grade 5 is currently used. This program is the controlled database for all the documentation. Because the documentation database is not complete and not up to date, it takes on average 60 minutes to find the technical documents. While this should be on average 6 minutes. The goal of this internship is to find what kinds of documents are required by the employees for rotating equipment and make sure that these documents are transferred from several archives to Grade 5. First, a voice of the customer was made with the different maintenance departments from Nouryon Botlek. From the voice of the customer, the five most important rotating documents that need to be stored in Grade 5 are derived. These documents are: The technical specification sheet, the pump curve, seal information, technical drawings and manuals. Currently, the search for documents starts in Grade 5, when the documents are not found here the search continues to the paper archives. When the archives have been searched the next step is to go in the field and see what kind of pump is actually in operation in the factory. This is done because for some of the pumps there are documents from three different manufacturers. After this, all the documents are sorted, and the right ones are used for the project. This process takes on average an hour with a total lead time of multiple days. The ideal situation would be only to have to look into Grade 5. The different archives, inspection archive, MEB archive, E&U archive and personal archives, have been looked into to find as many documents and to determine where the documents can be found. In total around 220 of the documents of the factory units, 3600 and 8100 have been found. This is around 50% of the required documents. The main reason that the yield of the documents is low is that all documents of a pump could be found or none of the documents of the pump could be found. The archives to look for further documents are the E&U and MEB paper archives. They have the most information stored. It is recommended that for the pumps that have no documentation that this is requested at the project engineers in Arnhem. The most important recommendation is that the archives need to be sorted to remove the duplicated documents. Also, if maintenance is performed, it is recommended to check if the rotating documentation is still up to date.
