Find and Fix the Root Causes of Equipment Related Failures

April 15th, 2015 by

Don’t end up “fixing” the same equipment problems over and over again. Don’t let equipment issues cause quality, operations, and safety issues. Find the real root causes of your equipment reliability issues and develop effective fixes that will keep them from happening again by using this systematic process.

Did you know that we have 3-day and 1-day courses? What’s the difference? 3-Day Courses include the 1-Day Equifactor® Course along with the 2-Day Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis Course so you have it all in one. The 1-Day courses are just the separate Equifactor® course that requires a previously taken 2-Day course along with it, not necessarily all in one trip.

Why take an Equifactor® course? You will not only receive invaluable knowledge for your business, but also a Free single-user copy of TapRooT® Software. (A $2890 Value!) You can’t get a better deal than that.

Still deciding? Watch the video below to hear our Equifactor® instructor, Ken Reed, talk about why this course is right for you.

 

Steps to register for the course and Free Software.

1) CLICK HERE

2) Select a 1-Day Equifactor® Course of your choice (Having already taken a 2-Day course or accompanying it with a 2-Day course)

3) Register for the course and add it to your cart

4) Done!

2015 Global TapRooT® Summit After Hours: O’Sheas on The LINQ

April 7th, 2015 by

We’ve been highlighting some fun things to do in this column during 2015 Global TapRooT® Summit Week (June 1 – 5, 2015, Las Vegas, NV). Today we are featuring an entertainment venue that is literally steps away from the Summit host hotel, The Flamingo Las Vegas.

O’Shea’s Casino and Pub never has a dull moment. On our site visit, a local desribed it as “Not your father’s Oshea’s, more like your son’s.” Located in the former Imperial Palace, O’Shea’s stays true to their Irish theme with an exciting and rambunctious atmosphere.

 

O'Sheas on the LINQ Promenade

O’Sheas on the LINQ Promenade

An Irish inspiration isn’t all they’ve got going for them, though. The 50 types of beer, table games, beer pong tournaments, live entertainment and outdoor games keep the spirit alive. Don’t forget the delicious pub menu and unique drink specials to share and enjoy with friends into the night.
