The FST will support plant Operations by responding to requests for troubleshooting, maintenance and repair. The FST will provide feedback on any problems and recommends potential improvements.

Together with the MDD and RPLs, the FST will define standard documents, tools and data collection methods to determine the root cause of any performance shortfalls as well as determination of appropriate intervals for routine maintenance and replacement of machine wear components.
