First Step To Improving Asset Reliability: A TapRooT® TV Video Premiere

This week we are digging in to better understand asset reliability and effective equipment troubleshooting. So, what is the first step to improving asset reliability?

Specifically, we will take a look at how Equifactor® Troubleshooting works, and why it’s simple yet effective. Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting & TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis are powerful methods of ensuring you are fixing your machinery issues the first time.

Where can you learn more? At an Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting & TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Course. Find out about what’s covered in the training at the link above.

Who should attend Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting training?

Obviously, to be good at using a tool, you have to be trained in its use.  Equifactor® training has been set up to be extremely flexible to meet various training needs.

The course is set up to be a 2-Day TapRooT® / Equifactor® course:

  • On Day 1 we will teach the Equifactor® troubleshooting techniques.  This day can be attended by any of your equipment reliability and maintenance folks.  They’ll learn how to use the SnapCharT® to collect troubleshooting information, and the Equifactor® troubleshooting tables to analyze the equipment failure.
  • Day 2 will then teach the rest of the TapRooT® techniques.  Those that would like to learn the full TapRooT® system, but using equipment examples, will stay for both days and get the full course.

How do Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tables work?

Installed Equifactor® tables allow you to look up the causes of failures of common pieces of equipment, look for the specific symptom you’re observing, and then select from a list of possible causes of that symptom.  It makes it very easy to identify the problem with many of your equipment issues.

So, stop slapping the side of the machine or trusting your hammer to knock some sense into it. Instead, discover how to find, troubleshoot, and fix problems once and for all with our systematic troubleshooting process – Equifactor®.
