Achieving Lubrication Excellence with a Six Sigma Approach

Leon Reed, Principal Reliability Engineer, GenesisSolutions

Many organizations are mired in old cultures and legacy practices when it comes to machinery lubrication and reliability. It is estimated that 40 to 60 percent of all equipment failures can be attributed to improper lubrication. Today’s modern equipment requires precision lubrication with specific lubricants administered through best practices to sustain reliability, maximize life cycles and generate profits. This presentation will detail how to use a Six Sigma approach to identify your lubrication program’s current state, measure progress to a desired state, properly develop your program and transition your organization to an award-winning lubrication excellence facility.

PM Optimization: An EAM Best Practice Overview

Mike Greenholtz, Vice President, Reliability Solutions, GenesisSolutions

Following asset criticality ranking, a preventive maintenance optimization (PMO) effort is the next step in achieving world-class reliability standards for a successful enterprise asset management program. The purpose of PMO is to refine maintenance tasks and frequencies in supporting a particular physical asset. In simple terms, PMO is performing the right work at the right frequency in the right way. Although there are a number of benefits of PMO, increasing your mean time between failures is one that will have a tremendous impact on the entire operation. This presentation will provide an overview of the PMO process, the expected outcome and the advantages of a successfully executed PM optimization effort.

The Importance of Performing an Asset Criticality Ranking

Quinton GoForth, Director, Reliability Services, GenesisSolutions

The philosophy of improving the performance of critical assets is common knowledge when it comes to asset management. However, many organizations fail to fully understand the methodology behind formally ranking an asset as critical. Through proper development of an asset criticality ranking model, reliability engineering concepts can be applied to determine at what level each asset should be managed based on criticality. This is why asset criticality ranking is a key component to achieving enterprise asset management, as it is the primary mechanism needed to prioritize improvement activities when time and resource availability are limited.
