Let Equifactor® Save You Time and Effort While Making You Look Good!


Included in the TapRooT® Software and training materials, there is a tool called Equifactor®, designed to help companies improve the way their people diagnose equipment reliability problems.

We see many companies just punt the work to the subject matter experts (SME) and trust that they will be able to diagnose the problem; instead, they could be using Equifactor® to more seamlessly and efficiently solve the problem.

Normally, the SME starts trying to solve the problem with what worked in the past. and If that doesn’t work, they try another idea they’ve seen applied before. They depend on trial and error because they think that there is no standardized process or tools that help them go beyond their own knowledge and experience when evaluating the problem. If you are missing Equifactor®, you are missing a tool that provides extremely valuable insight into equipment and components failures resulting in delays and poor resource management. Not to mention the frustration and anxiety caused for everyone involved.

Using Equifactor® takes advantage of the expert knowledge that helps you reduce troubleshooting time.

Equifactor® takes you beyond your own knowledge and experience by giving you equipment and component troubleshooting tables along with the general equipment troubleshooting techniques of Failure Modes and Failure Agents (FRETT).

Using Equifactor® saves time, effort, resources.

The investigator looks up the equipment or component that failed in the troubleshooting tables. The tables will tell them the common symptoms seen before that type of failure and the possible causes of each of those symptoms. That allows you to be more intentional with your efforts because you limit the possible causes you’ll need to check out. You will find that this will indicate the specific possible causes of the failure that your team will verify or dismiss during your investigation. You aren’t starting from scratch, you know what you are looking for. That’s how this process saves you time, effort, and resources.
