Most of the 'managers' doesn't no what vibration monitoring really means and how certified VA take care of. For those who know what it means they never hassitate to call a certifed VA and doesn't ask what it costs, they know the benefit of it.
It frustrates because behind the scene the VA sets the lines of urgency's and maintain reliability/safety. The custumor takes the real benefits. Most company profile's are driven by money, until a big accident occurs and the insurance company is involved: Happy Christmas!!
The real question is what benefits does VA has if there where no VA's?? Given on facts EURO's and Dollar. Even the biggest bearing company can't calculate this into Dollars / Euro's.
