Vibration Based Machinery Improvement® for Supervisors and Managers
To give supervisors and managers the knowledge and insights needed to manage and support a successful Machinery Improvement® Program, weighing both the management issues and technical fundamentals.
No other single maintenance approach offers greater and faster returns than an effective Machinery Improvement Program. Unfortunately, many plant personnel in decision-making roles lack a thorough understanding of Machinery Improvement and the significant potential of an effective program. Within such programs, over 70 percent of the machinery improvement activities require decisions from a supervisor or manager. Through this special seminar, supervisors and managers learn techniques that increase machinery availability and at the same time reduce maintenance costs. Also gained is an understanding of the close relationship between vibration and Machinery Improvement and how to best support this important activity within your organization for maximum returns.
Supervisors and managers learn Update’s unique precision maintenance concept and the practical know-how that ensures increased machinery availability and reduced maintenance costs - essentially more with less!
Understand How Machinery Improvement Translates into Financial Results
Many plants consistently report annual maintenance savings in excess of $1 million, and often over $3 million, as a direct result of their Machinery Improvement Programs. We show the participant how to quantify savings and document actual plant successes. Case histories highlight the key elements of successful programs.
Learn How to Involve a Maximum Number of People in Vibration Control
Maximizing the effectiveness of your maintenance people is an important part of minimizing maintenance costs. An effective approach is shifting “routine” vibration control activities to crafts people and to some machine operators. This allows the core group of vibration specialists to concentrate more effectively on higher level work. Participants gain helpful insights on what specific tasks are best suited for people in different job categories.
Technical Understanding of Machinery Vibration
To effectively support a Machinery Improvement Program, today’s decision maker must have a solid grasp of vibration fundamentals and how they are applied towards improving the machinery performance. The supervisor and manager will come away from this course with a working understanding of vibration units, spectrum analysis, phase, resonance, as well as misalignment, unbalance, and other common vibration problems.
