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…

What happens after the alignment?

Don’t be left in the dark. Alignment processes should include post monitoring to protect the asset and confirm a proper alignment. Elongate the life of your machines with these tips, tricks and technologies from Fluke Reliability alignment experts, Mike Ciocys, Technical Service & Support Manager and Chelsea Fiegel, Service Sales Leader. During this session, we…

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…

Unshrouding the mystery of rarely-used parts: How to avoid shutdown and cost overruns due to parts availability

Unshrouding the mystery of rarely-used parts: How to avoid shutdown and cost overruns due to parts availability

Storerooms everywhere are lacking certain critical parts while other parts are overstocked – and getting the mix right in today’s environment of supply shortages is even more challenging than it used to be. The risk, of course, is that a rarely-used yet critical part may not be available to get equipment back online, or that…

Using business intelligence tools to achieve reliability maintenance goals: Practical advice on how to get started

Using business intelligence tools to achieve reliability maintenance goals: Practical advice on how to get started

Sometimes the RCA experts need to do an RCA on themselves. There are many reasons why maintenance and reliability teams can feel stuck in place, and getting a big picture view of what’s (really) going on can be one way to identify root cause. Business intelligence tools such as Power BI and Tableau can assemble…

Future-proofing asset dependent firms against talent flight

Future-proofing asset dependent firms against talent flight

Talent risks now represent a significant threat to asset dependent firms. In addition to the sheer unavailability of talent, there is the increasingly competitive environment to attract talent. The stark reality is that even where the talent is available, significant onboarding is required to hone troubleshooting and other skills that these firms rely on daily….

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…

Vibration monitoring for peak asset performance

Vibration monitoring for peak asset performance

Vibration monitoring alerts teams to changes in machine condition before the situation degrades enough to cause harm. With a solid mix of monitoring and in-person evaluation, maintenance teams can move closer to condition-based-maintenance, where they make decisions and schedule work based on what their assets are saying, not just on the maintenance intervals. Join this…
