Photography for Maintenance Activities

The RELIABILITY Conference – 52:28
by Paul Crocker, Kansas City Board of Public Utilities

Sometimes I need more information on an Asset than what is readily available. In those instances I’ll give a camera to one my staff and ask them to get photos of what I need. I usually get back images that aren’t usable and then I have to go and take them myself (which is a waste my time). My goal with this presentation is to share my frustrations, and to show how I trained my staff to use the camera so that when I send them to get pictures of something I get the photographic image that I want with sufficient surrounding detail so I can tell where the photo was taken, what’s going on with the object, and nameplate data.
