  1. Why You Need a Management of Change (MOC) Process © Life Cycle Engineering
  2. Supporting data reveals that as much as 22% of reliability problems faced in manufacturing are caused by uncontrolled changes. © Life Cycle Engineering
  3. As a result, more emphasis has been placed on holistically understanding change control needs including changes to procedures, process steps and administration. © Life Cycle Engineering
  4. This is what we have come to know today as Management of Change (MOC). © Life Cycle Engineering
  5. There are at least four good reasons for implementing a systematic MOC process. © Life Cycle Engineering
  6. 1. Management of Change Prevents Accidents © Life Cycle Engineering
  7. Organizations without systematic MOC processes often end up with sub-optimized risk management systems which don’t proactively recognize perils. Unless changes are properly evaluated, an organization will not be able to fully understand how best to treat associated risks. © Life Cycle Engineering
  8. 2. Management of Change Increases Asset Reliability © Life Cycle Engineering
  9. Without MOC, uncontrolled changes often lead to: • Improper operation of assets, a leading cause of failures • Inadequate operating and maintenance procedures, reducing overall lifecycle of assets • Poor employee involvement, which suppresses the sense of ownership required to continuously improve reliability © Life Cycle Engineering
  10. 3. Management of Change Ensures Traceability of Changes © Life Cycle Engineering
  11. A growing number of standards applicable to every major industry today require that changes are transparent and traceable. OSHA 1910.1192, for example, clearly sanctions the implementation of MOC as a means to evaluate and trace change. © Life Cycle Engineering
  12. 4. A Management of Change Process Ensures Evaluation of Alternatives © Life Cycle Engineering
  13. Quite often changes are made which negatively affect an organization. If nothing else, a MOC process will slow down or stop the execution of unnecessary changes. © Life Cycle Engineering
  14. Every business, regardless of legal requirements, needs to control potential losses. And Management of Change, appropriately applied, is an excellent, cost-effective loss prevention process. © Life Cycle Engineering
