With around 80% of equipment failures being totally unpredictable based on the equipment’s age alone, you must have an on-condition maintenance strategy to deal with them. The around 20% usage or time-based repetitive failures are addressed by doing preventative maintenance and scheduled replacement maintenance well before failure can occur.
Should you be using this maintenance tactic? If so, are you using the right techniques? How do you know if you are getting a return on your investment? Has your condition monitoring initiative run out of steam? Or, if you are using an external supplier of CBM services to carry out the work, do you know how to evaluate them/work with them to ensure that you are getting value for money?
All these are real questions for Maintenance and Engineering professionals tasked with having efficient and effective Asset Care programs. Measuring the condition of your equipment, and then making an assessment as to whether or not it will fail in the future allows us to take the appropriate action to avoid the consequences of that failure. This is “Predictive Maintenance” or “Condition Based Maintenance – CBM”.
This workshop provides and analyses proven condition based maintenance strategies and techniques (engineering and organizational) and the elements required to setup a condition based maintenance program in a facility. This course also covers analysing condition monitoring results and developing recommendations based on the analysis. The data analysed is generated by a continuous plant and equipment condition monitoring program.
