Reliability is designed—literally and figuratively. Literally speaking, the inherent reliability of our equipment is governed by its design. But as equipment custodians, what we do (or don’t do) affects a machine’s reliability more than we may think—and it goes way beyond maintenance. In this webinar, RCM expert Nancy Regan details the winning reliability philosophy that empowers equipment custodians to achieve their reliability goals. (And it may be simpler than you think!)
Nancy Regan is a maintenance and reliability (M&R) international speaker and trainer. Nancy has more than 20 years of hands-on experience facilitating Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) analyses, conducting RCM training, and implementing RCM programs. Among the many projects she has facilitated is the CH-47 Chinook Helicopter, the U.S. Army’s heavy-lift helicopter. She is founder of RCMTrainingOnline.com, an online learning place dedicated to bringing accessible and affordable training to the maintenance and reliability community. Nancy is president of and an examiner for the International Reliability Centered Maintenance Certification Committee (IRCC). She is a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and holds a B.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering.
Maintenance teams know these pitfalls. Coupling backlash, where manual positioning of the coupling is needed during a measurement rotation. Uncoupled machines, where laser and sensor heads must be separately and manually positioned on a machine, leading to possible errors and rework. Repeated moves and measurements just to get an accurate alignment result. In this webinar, Jonathan Gough, PRUFTECHNIK product manager for Fluke Reliability, discusses these and other pitfalls that drive up the cost and extend the time it takes to complete alignment jobs. He will explain how Adaptive Alignment systems overcome these drawbacks and deliver new levels of speed and precision in laser shaft alignment.
