Equipment downtime and poor performance can bee costly for your company, but did you know that it is possible to determine the health of the equipment? With the right technologies, the nature and severity of fault conditions can be determined months before the machine would fail.
Additionally, with the right approach, you can go much further and also improve the reliability of the equipment, resulting in even lower costs and better performance.
In this month’s Best Practices Webinar, “Condition monitoring for maintaining asset health,” our presenter Jason Tranter, CMRP and the managing director for the Mobius Institute, will discuss the basic principles of condition monitoring (and briefly review each of the most common technologies) and emphasize how it is important to expand the program into a proactive approach that deals with the root causes of equipment failure and, thus, improves the reliability.
This webinar will take place on Wednesday, April 11, 2018, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET (10 a.m. CT, 9 a.m. MT, 8 a.m. PT and 4 p.m. GMT). Register for free here.
Leading up to the live event, we asked Jason to give us a sneak peek into the topic. Here’s what he had to say.
Who should attend this webinar?
If you are involved with condition monitoring or with reliability improvement, this webinar will be ideal. It can be difficult to achieve the best results from a condition monitoring program, and it can certainly be difficult to implement a successful reliability improvement program. This presentation will address both issues.
People involved with engineering and especially operations/production will also gain a great deal from this presentation. Everyone in operations or a production environment should understand why machines do not always perform as desired (e.g., dealing with breakdowns, slowdowns and generating products with poor quality).
What is one of the toughest challenges to overcome when moving toward more proactive maintenance strategies?
The No. 1 challenge is to develop a culture of reliability. Everyone benefits if the plant is more reliable, and everyone influences the reliability of the plant. It is not just a maintenance issue; it extends through practically every aspect of the organization.
The next challenge is to gain and retain support from senior management. Without that support, not only is it difficult to gain the desired level of funding, but it is almost impossible to develop the culture of reliability unless it is driven from above.
What are three technologies/methods that you will discuss during your presentation on April 11?
First, attendees will receive a helpful overview of condition monitoring.
Second, attendees will understand the relationship between condition monitoring and proactive maintenance and understand the full spectrum of the reliability improvement program.
Third, attendees will understand what is at the core of a successful reliability improvement program.
Is there anything else prospective attendees should know about this webinar when deciding to register?
This presentation is highly animated. The presenter will use 3D animations and interactive animations to provide engaging visual elements to the presentation.
Attendees should take the opportunity to gather a group together and discuss the topics raised afterwards. Condition monitoring and reliability leaders can use the presentation to reinforce what they are already doing within the organization to improve reliability and remind everyone why they are experiencing problems with reliability.
