2-Day Condition Based Maintenance Course Overview

Condition Monitoring technologies are developing at a rapid rate and a massive range of solutions are available. There seem to be plenty of experts and vendors who know a lot about single or particular techniques and many people who know virtually nothing. However, there seem to be few people who have a good general overview of the range of techniques available.
Some users end up buying solutions that do not provide the best possible business benefits. Sometimes purchases are driven by people who are keen on the technology but do not address the business needs, while sometimes the equipment purchased does not provide the most technically feasible solution. In some cases, alternatives are not considered due to a lack of knowledge of the techniques and equipment available.
Buyers need to be in control. They need to consider all alternatives. They need to make sure the solutions selected are technically feasible, but also that they are worth doing, in other words, that they add value to the business, and that they meet the needs to address the issues. They need to know the sorts of questions to ask the experts.
This course is not designed to make people experts in any technique, but to provide an overview of the options available and allow them to engage constructively with vendors and suppliers to find the best possible solutions.
The objectives of this course are:
- to make delegates more aware of the range of condition based tasks available
- to provide the framework for deciding whether such tasks are technically feasible and worth doing
- to enable them to ask the right questions of the experts/ vendors in order to apply such techniques effectively and make sound and defensible investment decisions.
The following condition-based techniques are covered in the course:
- The Human senses;
- Product Quality Monitoring;
- Performance Monitoring;
- Dynamic effects monitoring (including vibration analysis);
- Particle analysis;
- Chemical analysis;
- Temperature effects monitoring;
- Physical effects monitoring; and
- Electrical effects monitoring.
In addition to presentations, delegates carry out a number of exercises to identify different condition based techniques, compare different techniques to determine which is most cost-effective, and evaluate the economics of investment decisions.
