I am a “one man show” I collect the data, review and write the reports. I approach each machine as if I owned it. Not only do I collect crank angle encoded data, statistical data and control panel information but also note any issue that I deem worthy of notice. I denote any oil leak, loose clamp, missing bolt or stud, loose support or loose or exposed wiring. My reports are a complete inspection on the condition of the machine both internally and externally.
I believe the implementation of an analysis program is the Heartbeat of any good maintenance program. When done correctly the analysis data will provide true insight to the condition of the machine. When the true condition is known the planned maintenance and daily operation can be optimized.
