Defect elimination: how to proactively prevent the root cause of machine breakdowns?

Reliability Solutions
Defect elimination: how to proactively prevent the root cause of machine breakdowns? Anyone in maintenance, reliability, asset management and production who is responsible for the functioning of assets in an industrial environment.

Practice often proves to be more obstinate than theory when it comes to machine breakdowns. The importance of operational reliability is known wherever machines are in operation. Because of the large negative impact of breakdowns or problems with machines, it is important to work on this actively. This two-day course is designed to teach the principles of increasing the operational safety of the most common machines in production facilities through Defect Elimination. In addition to providing the participants with skills and insights into this topic, this course provides answers to questions such as: What factors lead to a more efficient and effective approach to machine breakdowns? How do you avoid hasty work, 'trial and error' repairs, taking premature conclusions and bad ad hoc decisions? What are the most common failure modes of machines? And how do I tackle their root cause?

About the teacher:

Pedro Viña works as a senior reliability engineering consultant. Driven by a curiosity for people and technology, he is a lifelong learner and loves to share his knowledge, practical experiences and insights in rotating machinery. He has more than 30 years of experience in solving complex problems with creative "out-of-the-box" solutions in challenges of every major industry.

He developed his pragmatic approach in maintenance departments in Antwerp, where he started as maintenance engineer for a refinery and ended as technology manager rotating equipment for a chemical company. He gained in-depth knowledge and "savoir-faire" about pumps and shaft seals during 25 years in the role of subject matter expert with renowned manufacturers.
