• Ensuring that spares and materials are identified in sufficient time to enable procurement to purchase and deliver the items to site in time for the scheduled shutdown.
• Managing interface and material issue responsibilities between P&M and Maintenance.
• Ensuring the TBE are conducted and reported efficiently to enable PO to be issued for shutdown spares and materials.
• Tracking and managing updates for spares and materials through MUSIS reporting, weekly shutdown meetings and correspondence with Achats in HMD.
