Make plans now because trouble doesn’t wait

• • •

Do you need to efficiently and effectively find the root causes of equipment failures to improve your facility’s equipment reliability? Imagine the downtime prevented and money saved by NOT having repeat equipment failures.

Hone your equipment troubleshooting skills

Register today for the Pre-Summit TapRooT® Equifactor® course, March 9-10, at the 2020 Global TapRooT® Summit, March 11-13, Horseshoe Bay Resort, near Austin, Texas.

Learn about the TapRooT® Equifactor® course from TapRooT® Professionals Benna Hughes and Ken Reed

Can’t attend the Pre-Summit Equifactor® Course or the 2020 Global TapRooT® Summit?

Although there is nothing like the experience of attending the Global TapRooT® Summit, you have other options for training:

  • Register for an Equifactor® course.
  • Or, if your team prefers to be trained onsite, TapRooT® can customize what you need for your troubleshooters or engineers or maintenance personnel. Contact us or call to get started.

Follow up by reading TapRooT® President Mark Paradies’ excellent article on troubleshooting, “Root Cause Analysis of Equipment Reliability & Maintenance Problems.”

The Equifactor® Techniques are based on the work of noted equipment reliability expert Heinz Bloch

In the 2-Day Pre-Summit Equifactor course, you will learn how to use Equifactor® to troubleshoot equipment issues and find out what is leading to failures. Then, you will learn to use the TapRooT® System to organize the information you collect, identify the Causal Factors of the failure, and find the fixable root causes of the failure. You will learn to develop effective fixes to stop future equipment failures.
