Your ideas on a new book on reliability
Registered Member Vinay, Thanks a lot, the links give me a start and your suggestions are useful. I hope I can get some pointers from others as well. [ more ]
Registered Member Respected Vee, First things first. I heartily appreciate your idea of writing this sort of BOOK. As for my comments/suggestions they are marked in Italics below. 1. Do you have the CMRP curriculum details relating to reliability or can you send me a link? The CMRP curriculum is mentioned in SMRPCO Candidate Guide on Page 19-40. 2. Do you know a source of past exam papers or is there a site where I can see them? Yes, You can see them in the above document from Page 52-55. 3. If you were to... [ more ]

Next/Previous Discussion tabs
Registered Member Then try this John. Go out of town for two days with no internet access. Then return to find 23 new posts. Click on the oldest and view it. Then click back to the forum and click on the next oldest, then back to the forum and click on the next oldest and so on and so on. In the end, it means that I won't see every post, just the titles. [ more ]
Registered Member Definitely missing now, not sure if I ever knew they were there. This to me means they probably aren't really missed too much. John from PA [ more ]
Registered Member You've got it right, Terry. They were at the left hand bottom corner of each thread page. I go to the index, select the oldest unread (to me) post, then click on next topic to advance through them. Doing it that way, you can see the actual post rather than just the topic title line.

'Indian' Editions of Maintenance & Reliability
Registered Member Thanks Vee for your efforts. I really appreciate it. Looking forward to the books. Are there any books which you recommend as a must read for preparing for CMRP examination? Thanks and regards Vinay [ more ]
Registered Member Vinay, I have forwarded your request to Industrial Press, along with my support to your plea. IP have responded to say that this idea is already in hand with them. They are in the process of publishing a low-cost edition of Machinery Handbook in India, and depending on how that works out, will decide on publishing other titles. [ more ]

Registered Member It still does the same: ..."page not available..." jank [ more ]
Registered Member Jank - should be fixed now - can you verify or confirm? The problem was an incomplete attachment - like a piece of food stuck in your throat. Should be ok now. Terry O [ more ]

"Practical Plant Failure Analysis" by Neville Sachs
Registered Member I agree that this is a great book. Neville writes and speaks plainly about how you can learn more about the forces that happened before failure to better understand the causes. Kind of like CSI for mechanical failures. The books is fantastic and Neville will be leading a workshop at Solutions 2.0 (Nov 17-19) in Daytona Beach. The recorded workshop with Jack Nicholas and Neville Sachs is available online here . Choose session 4 for Neville Sachs (it runs 84 minutes so you might want to have... [ more ]

New PdM Beginners Message Board
Registered Member I second Joe's recommendation. Two reasons: 1 - There already seem to be a number of the regulars who regularly responding to questions down on the PdM beginners forum. (not me). 2 - Quite often the "beginners" question is not simple at all. [ more ]
Registered Member Terry, How about limiting the "Posters" to beginners only but allowing more experienced people to way in with answers? By knowing that the person asking the questions is new to the field, we could be sure to present our replies with more detail and understanding. [ more ]
Registered Member Hi everybody. I consider myself a "newie" in PDM, but nevertheless I don't feel left out, I think that occasionally my questions are not clear enough because "experience issues", but that is something to cope with in time. I value this forum as a knowledge community, it's selfless sprit and all the people that post reply to questions that are made. Sometimes (most of them luckily ) the answers people give are helpful, other times, not so much. I agree a bit with danny, in order that a... [ more ]

attachment problems
Registered Member Thanks Pete I will agree - with 12,000 members and tons of posts and attachments - and from what I can tell - this is the most trafficked maintenance focused site on the internet - these forums are pretty robust. Wish everything else in the world worked as well. Terry O [ more ]
Registered Member This forum runs so smooth we tend to take it for granted. Thanks Terry. [ more ]

Building a Reference Library
Registered Member I am going to be greedy and exceed three so here goes: Out of Crisis by W. Edwards Deming because it includes ethical and moral business leadership combined with human respect and robust processes. Read New Economics immediately after. RCM: Gateway to World Class Maintenance by Anthony M. Smith and Glenn R. Hinchcliffe (or you could read RCM II by John Moubray) because you will have a better understanding of how to create a maintenance program that preserves system function. Benchmarking... [ more ]

Copyright and Patent Infringement Issues on Forums and Databases
Registered Member Josh When used as part of a research study, government project, etc. some level of use is allowed (referred to as 'fair use'). However, I have already had one company put together a document, with my name throughout, that basically made up my registered copyright first edition of Electrical Motor Diagnostics (a $150 book) and then distributed it for free electronically. The response they gave was that they were 'promoting me.' Under copyright law, I have the ability to go back, as it is a... [ more ]
Registered Member If others use the information beneficailly e.g. in literature survey as references, this will promote their works which can bring income if there are required for talks, training or employment. I guess not many will blindly use internet information without screeening or approval first. [ more ]
Registered Member Indeed too much protection can hinder expansion of human knowledge, but on the other side, not protecting the creators will stop expansion also. You are being paid for your work, they also have to be paid. Not everything is free (except the air you inhale), if we rely too much on "free internet" information which is not being screened by trained professionals we will have accidents, disasters because any moonlighter can play engineer or doctor with free "online" knowledge. At least in this... [ more ]

BREAKDOWN MAINTENANCE POSTING BOARD
Registered Member I think it would also be useful as part of your site breakdown strategy that you have a management policy that every equipment breakdown that impacts on production is investigated using a Root Cause Analysis process that not only identifies corrective actions to get you back to where you were before the breakdown occurred , but also preventive actions that will prevent the breakdown or similar types of breakdowns from happening in the future [ more ]
Registered Member I think it better for newbie in maintenance field. My opinion about breakdown, if equipment breakdown it might be to restore back as soon as possible in the system by maintenance. But equipment have chance to failue as the same cause if reliability engineer's do not something. So, reliability engineer's must do something and economically concern as Josh saided. [ more ]
Registered Member First, where does or for which equipment does breakdown maintenance or run to failure strategy is applicable and economically viable option to do so? [ more ]

Registered Member You can do that in the things for sale forum. Just create a new photo album there. Terry O [ more ]

Registered Member Thanks for the suggestions. I think it updates if you also add a comment but am not sure. I will breakdown and read the documentation. Terry O [ more ]

A separate posting board for RCM
Registered Member I guess what you mean is to enable easy searching and browsing for RCM-related posts later on.... [ more ]
Registered Member I would definitely be in support of a separate forum for RCM. There were many templates developed within my area, prior to my time, and I would like to have the opportunity to review similar ones when we review ours to confirm we have covered all angles, and thought of as many angles for failure. [ more ]
Registered Member The right wording is a separate forum for RCM. [ more ]

Videos
Registered Member I've used the video feature on my work camera many times for both analysis and illustration of equipment problems.I don't know how interesting mine would be to the rest of the forum. However I would love to see how others make use of video. Would you have a built in widget to automatically compress huge file types like .MOV to .AVI similar to the way YouTube does? [ more ]

Maintenance Forums community stats
Registered Member Hi Terrence, I think this information is interesting to review, but it occurs to me that it'd work better if one could see it in the personal area. That way you wouldn't have to post it every month . I take the opportunity to state another idea. Have you considered a spellcheck option for the "Post A Reply" window?. English is not my mother thong, but I try my best to write properly (my english is a bit rusted and i have to check the dictionary a lot), but there a are a lot non-speaking... [ more ]
Registered Member That is some interesting discussion. Do individual member stats motivate participation? Do they demotivate some ? Do they change the character of the participation? Beats me. Over on eng-tips.com, they have an elaborate system to track the activity of individuals. You can see the last login date. You can see the number of threads started, the number of posts, and you can break these down by the individual forum in which they appeared. Additionally, any member is free to anonymously vote a... [ more ]
Registered Member My earlier post sounded kind of immodest. I get at least as much help here as I give out and probably quite a bit more. Another reason not to keep score-fear of embarrassing those of us who aren't scared to ask for help on the many occasions that we don't know what we are doing. [ more ]
