Often when talking with Maintenance and Reliability professionals, a popular topic of discussion is how frequent a particular inspection task should be performed. This also comes up often when discussing Preventive Maintenance Optimization (PMO). In this post, I'd like to present a risk-based approach to calculating the proper frequency of a On-Condition Inspection task.

Asset-intensive companies rely heavily on BoMs for work orders and maintenance operations. The accuracy of your work order depends on having the correct parts and quickly identifying those parts. Time is money for every organization. Therefore, maintenance personnel do not need to be spending unnecessary extra time trying to locate equipment. Having a BoM is only half the battle. BoMs are often laced with misinformation, missing parts, and errors which hinders maintenance and reliability operations.

I'm a big fan of Aesop's fables. I use them with my kids to remind them to always tell the truth (The Boy Who Cried Wolf) and to appreciate the things that they have (The Dog and the Shadow). I thought it might be interesting to use some of the thousands of fables that Aesop wrote to discuss maintenance and reliability principles. This is my first post in hopefully a long series.

The main purpose and benefit of Pseudo tach are to amplify the signal from the intermediate shaft while decreasing the noise from the application, thus obtaining clear and stable readings from the shaft. For reliable results, combining TSA with order tracking based on the Pseudo tach signal is strongly recommended

Analyzing machine vibration as a means of monitoring healthy operation and diagnosis of emerging problems is a relatively mature specialization, long practiced on turbines and motor-pump trains. Condition Monitoring for the factory today is generally implemented by a skilled practitioner equipped with a handheld data-logger, collecting and processing signals from a tethered vibration sensor during a periodically scheduled, route-based maintenance program.
