Learn precision maintenance techniques and the importance of precision.

Precision Balancing

Duration: 5h

Unbalance in rotating machinery puts excessive load on bearings and all other components, including the machine structure itself. The unbalance forces also excite resonances, cause looseness and fatigue failure, generate noise, and in certain circumstances, result in poor product quality. It has also been found that machines that are out of balance consume more energy.

Precision Alignment

Duration: 5h

Precision alignment is one of the primary tools for maximizing the reliability of rotating machinery. Just the smallest amount of angle or offset between two shafts will result in excess load on the bearings, seals, shaft, and coupling. In addition, the vibration generated can result in accelerated failure of other machine components and the supporting structure. It has also been demonstrated that misaligned machines consume more energy.


Short-courses to help you achieve your reliability improvement goals

Asset Reliability Transformation

Duration: 2h 30m

For many years, people have been trying to improve reliability in industrial facilities. Some have had success but by far the majority have not. In the worst-case, programs were cancelled by senior management and the personnel were asked to leave the organization… But in many cases, programs either fail to get off the ground in the first place, delivered marginal value, or simply faded away over time.

End Reactive Maintenance

Duration: 3h 30m

Probably the most common factor that stops reliability improvement programs dead in their tracks is the inability to end reactive maintenance. It is extremely common for people to struggle to make improvements when they are constantly being dragged back into solving equipment failures. Reactive maintenance is costly and dangerous. You need a plan to end reactive maintenance.

Work and Spares Management

Duration: 3h 30m

Work management (planning and scheduling) is a core component of a reliability improvement program. You certainly cannot have an effective condition monitoring program if you do not have an effective work management program. Likewise, you can’t have an effective work management program unless you have effective spares and materials management.

Precision and Proactive Maintenance

Duration: 4h 30m

If you have rotating machinery, they must be precision lubricated, aligned, balanced, and fastened if you wish to achieve the longest trouble-free life and the lowest maintenance costs. This course provides a very detailed summary each of these technical areas. Thanks to the use of the Mobius Institute simulations and animations, you will find it very easy to understand each of these technical topics.

Condition Monitoring and Condition-Based Maintenance

Duration: 5h 30m

Condition monitoring plays a key role in the reliability improvement program. At the least, it is used to provide a warning of future failures so that corrective maintenance can be planned. In a true reliability-based maintenance program, condition monitoring is an integral part of the planning and scheduling process. In a more enlightened program, it is used to detect the root causes of failure so they may be avoided, and it is used for quality assurance and quality control (acceptance testing when purchasing new equipment and for verifying the quality of work performed on-site).

Asset Strategy Development

Duration: 9h

Every reliability (and maintenance) improvement program must utilize a technique that establishes an effective maintenance strategy: the right balance of condition-based maintenance, time-based maintenance, and other elements. Unfortunately, in many plants, the maintenance strategy (and the condition monitoring plan) simply evolve over time. As a result, there are tasks and tests performed that either add no value, provide little value, or in some cases, actually harm the equipment.

Reliability Engineering Analytics

Duration: 3h 30m

While there is an almost endless number of practical improvements that can be made in order to improve reliability, a data driven approach will help to ensure that opportunities for improvement can be revealed, justified, and defended.

This course takes a practical approach to a theoretical subject. This is not the best course if you are interested in product quality or if you wish to use this course so that you may immediately utilize advanced analysis software. This course will provide a reliability engineering or senior condition monitoring specialist an excellent introduction to the subject. 

The Economics of Reliability

Duration: 3h

The only way to gain, and retain, senior management support is to determine the financial benefits of the initiatives. Even though it may make “common sense” to improve reliability, and even though you may be able to identify a dozen technical reasons for improving reliability, senior management are primarily interested in the business opportunity in financial terms – that is what their responsibilities are, achieving maximum benefit for shareholders and/or owners (or delivering the required services within a defined budget).

Psych, Culture and Human Error

Duration: 12h

The core requirement of a reliability improvement initiative is that you change the behavior of everyone in the organization. You need the right type of support at the highest levels in the organization, and you need everyone throughout the organization to contribute to the process. If you simply try to change people by implementing new practices and techniques, you will not be successful. The course is broken up into four sections.

Root Cause Analysis

Duration: 3h 30m

One of the keys to successful reliability improvement is getting to the bottom of a problem, finding the one (or more) actions that cause the problem, and solving it – stopping it from occurring again. This basic technique is most commonly applied to equipment failure, but it can, and should, be applied to other situations where the outcome is undesirable: poor performance, time or resources being wasted, the occurrence of near misses, and others.

Criticality and Pareto

Duration: 3h

The Asset Criticality Ranking and Pareto analysis are two powerful and easy to generate metrics that enable you to prioritize everything you do with your reliability improvement program. 

Rather than having to think about the 10,000 assets in your plant, you can focus on one – the most critical asset. Next you focus on the second asset in the list. And so on.
