Overview

Ashland LLC has an exciting and challenging opportunity for a  Maintenance /Reliability Engineer.

 

This position is in Parlin, NJ.

Description

The primary role of the Reliability Engineer is to identify and manage asset reliability risks that could adversely affect plant or business operations. This broad primary role can be divided into three smaller, more manageable roles: loss elimination - track the production losses and abnormally high maintenance cost assets, then find ways to reduce those losses or high costs. These losses are prioritized to focus efforts on the largest/most critical opportunities. The reliability engineer (in full partnership with the operations team) develops a plan to eliminate or reduce the losses through root cause analysis, obtains approval of the plan and facilitates the implementation; risk management - manage risk to the achievement of an organization’s strategic objectives in the areas of environmental health and safety, asset capability, quality and production; and life cycle asset management (LCAM) - involved in the design and installation stages of projects for new assets and modification of existing assets.
