Vibration condition monitoring programs play an important role in an organization's rotating equipment reliability and maintenance strategy.  While organizations may be in different stages of establishing their program, there are some common things to implement in order to get the greatest benefit from any program.  This workshop focusses on starting your program off on the right foot.  The workshop will use case histories to outline reasonable expectations, current vibration technology, and specific vibration standards for various industries.
In addition to starting off on the right foot the success of a vibration condition monitoring program will depend on maintaining momentum.  This workshop will finish by addressing areas within the participants program where they can focus on improving the long term reliability of their assets instead of simply finding failures.
