How to use Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) to get the reliability you need

  • Wednesday, August 4, 2021
  • 11 a.m. ET
  • Nancy Regan, RCM expert and founder, RCMTrainingOnline.com

For every action taken to maintain a piece of equipment, a Failure Mode—or cause of failure—is managed. That is why a Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is an essential part of physical asset management. When done properly, an FMEA helps organizations: 1) Define equipment goals, 2) Identify what could cause Reliability to suffer, and 3) Assign criticality.

Join Nancy as she shares how to avoid common FMEA pitfalls, and how to use a properly executed FMEA to make effective maintenance decisions.

Using root cause analysis and failure modes to build a total condition maintenance strategy for motor/drive systems

  • Wednesday, August 18, 2021
  • 11 a.m. ET
  • John Bernet, CMRP, Application and Product Specialist, Fluke Reliability

In this webinar, John Bernet from Fluke Reliability will discuss best practices for applying root cause analysis and expected failure modes to motor-drive systems.  You will learn the simple steps of total condition maintenance, how different inspection techniques from electrical to thermal can help identify different failure modes, and how vibration analysis in particular can find the most common mechanical faults on rotating machines. We will wrap up with a discussion on the obstacles teams may face when starting a reliability program and learn from those who have succeeded.
