New Motor Root Cause Failure Analysis Training

Training description

One of the most important factors to consider when repairing & maintaining motor systems is to understand why do they fail.

This training is intended for anyone interested in understanding motor failures, and those who want to serve customers by addressing the cause of failure rather than the symptom.

For this new version, the training & manual have been reorganized and updated with new information including a new approach to methodology, new case studies and a new section covering synchronous machine failures. For example, the all new “Root Cause Methodology” section goes into great detail explaining that effective root cause failure analysis must take place within the context of a practical problem-solving methodology or framework.

It covers a modified Plan-Do-Check-Act process that emphasizes the importance of planning and the related problem-solving methodology components. In addition, besides a systematic approach to problem solving, root cause failure analysis of motors and motor systems requires familiarity with contributing factors attributable to various kinds of applications, environments and industries. This includes how various stresses can affect motor components and the reciprocal impact the motor system may have on the motor.

Participants at this training will receive a new manual with 328 pages that provides extensive information, including a wide range of failures, the likely causes listed, and the methodology for confirming the probable cause of each failure, with hundreds of pictures.
