How to Use the P-F Curve to Plan Maintenance

How to Use the P-F Curve to Plan Maintenance

There are three core tools in the Reliability Professional’s belt: Root cause analysis (RCA), Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and the P-F curve. In a September 2020 webinar, three Fluke Reliability experts with years of plant floor experience outlined how to use the P-F curve and FMEA together. For example, use both to detect…

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…

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 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…

Managing cybersecurity risk in maintenance and reliability

Managing cybersecurity risk in maintenance and reliability

 Maintenance and reliability teams increasingly utilize a range of technologies, systems and devices—all of which can present cybersecurity risks. For this presentation, cyber expert Matthew Hudon and CMRP Frederic Baudart are joining together to outline which cybersecurity risks M&R teams should pay particular attention to and what preventive actions make the most sense to…

Defect elimination programs change the culture by solving lots of little problems first

Defect elimination programs change the culture by solving lots of little problems first

A defect elimination program targets the smallest, most irritating problems in a plant. It does so by giving everyone a stake in improving daily work life by eliminating errors and faults. In the process, a stronger continuous improvement culture takes hold, creating more widespread support for reliability initiatives at every scale. Michelle Ledet Henley, president…
