The Introduction of the SDIPF Reliability Curve

The SDIPF Curve is a visualization that attempts to graphically "bend time" to the benefit of investing in and applying reliability efforts by showing a lifetime snapshot of the asset over time.

Data-Driven Decision-Making for Predictable Production

How to Gain Timely and Accurate Data Insights to Optimize Asset Performance and Reliability

Data-driven decisions are those backed up by hard evidence; reliable and trustworthy data, rather than intuition, gut instinct, or guesswork. However, the abundance of data that is generated from Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) devices and multiple siloed sources makes it difficult to analyze. The worst thing that can happen is that critical data is missing, remains hidden, or is incorrect. So, how do you know you have the correct information to make the right decision at the right time?

Digital Transformation: Vehicle or Final Objective?

Digital Transformation: Vehicle or Final Objective?

Digital transformation (DT) has become a common conversational theme in the industrial and academic arena. Plenty of articles have been published describing the urgent need to embrace DT initiatives and the potential benefits of doing so. Yet, many of these DT initiatives do not offer a clear goal of what is to be achieved.

How to Detect Pump Valve Failures in Positive Displacement Pumps: Case Study

How to Detect Pump Valve Failures in Positive Displacement Pumps: Case Study

This case study describes a proven method for detecting failures in the suction or discharge valves inside positive displacement pumps using a unique method of vibration analysis. The determination to find a reliable method of detection led to a greater understanding of equipment and processes, from working with the vendor to implementing a design change. This case study describes a journey from repeated failures to improved equipment reliability and lower maintenance costs.

If Reliability Is a Journey, Where Do We Start?

It is often said that the pursuit of Reliability is a journey with no end, an ongoing effort of continuous improvement and newfound opportunity.

The Keys to Solving Fatigue: The Silent Killer

The Keys to Solving Fatigue: The Silent Killer

Fatigue is a failure mode that every manufacturing plant will experience at some point and can become chronic if not solved. While understanding fatigue has advanced since its inception in the early 1800s, there are still some misunderstandings in manufacturing in solving these failures. A characteristic of fatigue failures is stress, which is typically below the yield strength of the material. This is what makes fatigue a silent killer.
