ITT Industries” ProActivity initiative is designed to improve pump maintenance and performance by bringing together multiple ITT resources that were previously offered as separate services. Phase One of ProActivity is a system-level survey. The review takes one or two days and includes a plant walk-through, data gathering, and interviews with key personnel. Its findings determine whether Phase Two support will generate a significant return on investment. In Phase Two, a team of ProActivity consultants conduct an assessment and analysis that takes up to three months. They use proprietary software to provide a picture of the operation’s pump performance. The data collected includes maintenance records, energy usage, pump curves, inventory effectiveness, condition monitoring processes, skills needs analysis, and repair procedures. The assessment can be used to make recommended changes independently or to receive additional implementation support from ITT. In Phase Three, an embedded specialist joins the organization’s team as an on-site pump reliability specialist, providing ongoing consultation, technical assistance, and execution support. The embedded specialist also provides a direct link to the extended team of ITT experts and resources – including energy performance services, machine health monitoring, training, remanufacture and repair, inventory management, and engineering and design solutions.
