Rules of Thumb for Maintenance and Reliability Engineers by Ricky Smith and R. Keith Mobley
Rules of Thumb for Maintenance and Reliability Engineers will give the engineer the “have to have” information. It will help instill knowledge on a daily basis, to do his or her job and to maintain and assure reliable equipment to help reduce costs. This book will be an easy reference for engineers and managers needing immediate solutions to everyday problems. Most civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers will face issues relating to maintenance and reliability, at some point in their jobs. This will become their “go to” book. Not an oversized handbook or a theoretical treatise, but a handy collection of graphs, charts, calculations, tables, curves, and explanations, basic “rules of thumb” that any engineer working with equipment will need for basic maintenance and reliability of that equipment. . Access to quick information which will help in day to day and long term engineering solutions in reliability and maintenance . Listing of short articles to help assist engineers in resolving problems they face . Written by two of the top experts in the country
Step 1. Discover some schooling for your self:
● Attend a one- or two-week RCM coaching workshop. When you can, RCM coaching in your plant could be even higher, in order that half of the workshop could possibly be utilized to an asset in your plant.
● Attend a workshop on Maintenance Greatest Practices and Key Efficiency Indicators.
● Attend coaching in Six Sigma.
● This feels like quite a bit of coaching however it’s not. A real reliability engineer will need to have the instruments required to perform the job, and only a few universities provide real-world coaching and schooling.
Step 2. Educate administration at your website in what really is reliability and the way it impacts plant capability, asset availability, and utilization.
Step 3. Learn the article in Chapter 16 “Put a Plantwide Give attention to Practical Failures.”
Step 4. Take the upkeep/reliability evaluation within the e-book (Chapter 1) and determine the gaps. Be trustworthy along with your solutions.
Step 5. Rank the plant’s belongings primarily based on consequence and danger to the enterprise (see Chapter 5).
Step 6. Develop a enterprise case (see Chapter 1) and current it to govt management. This enterprise case ought to embody the price of change, return on funding, undertaking plan, and so forth. You need an govt engaged in your reliability initiative. This isn’t a journey with an finish. Reliability should turn into a means of life for the plant.
Step 7. Execute your plan. Make sure key efficiency indicators (see Chapter 6) are in place earlier than you start this journey with a purpose to measure and handle the undertaking and thus the outcomes.
