How machine alignment impacts maintenance strategies

Much of the work tied to machine alignment is standardized. But what happens after the alignment? There aren’t formal standards for what comes next, yet the strategies you adopt after alignment can help extend equipment lifespan. The presenters for Fluke Reliability’s Sept. 18 webinar titled “What happens after the alignment” are experts in asset maintenance…

Why we can’t proceduralize everything

Unwanted errors & surprises are serious threats to reliability in any high-hazard industry. To address them, many leaders apply a mechanistic approach. They install controls, write procedures, and enforce compliance. But these mechanistic strategies often backfire in adaptive, human-based systems. Learn the difference between Mechanistic and Adaptive Systems See why we can’t “proceduralize everything” in…

How business intelligence (BI) software and CMMS from eMaint boost data insights

A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) provides more than a place to maintain and manage assets and workflows. It’s also a place packed with usable data that, when analyzed in detail, enable deeper opportunities for directing and improving maintenance repair and operations (MRO) decisions. In an Accelix best practices webinar (BPW), Nicole Rochelle, business intelligence…

The Daily Benefits of a Continuous Improvement Plan

It’s one thing to say you’re going to do something to improve continuously every day, like exercising, is one thing. Following through is another. It takes discipline. In an Accelix best practices webinar called The Exponential Power of Daily Continuous Improvement, Calvin Williams, founder and CEO of Impruver, explores the power of daily improvement and…

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

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

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…

How to Apply Ultrasound Technology to Extend Bearing Life

Under lubricating or overlubricating a bearing can destroy it and bring production to a halt. Although there’s always going to be a certain amount of friction, maintaining just the right quantity of lubrication will keep it at an acceptable level.  In his July 2021 Accelix best practices webinar, Blair Fraser, global director of IIoT Solutions…

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

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

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…
