  1. Not a problem @Jim Vantyghem it has taken me longer than I expected to prepare all the course content, but my focus has been quality rather than schedule.
  2. Hi @Derek Brown building up equal run hours on both machines is indeed not a great idea in my opinion as you run the risk that age-related failure modes occur on both machines around the same time and potentially within the time it takes to get one pump returned back to service, then you end up with both out at the same time. If you explain the above carefully, I've found that it is usually not too hard to convince operators that they need to build a differential in run hours by for example running pump A 2 or 3 times as long as pump B. And I have indeed in the past set tasks like this up in the CMMS to make sure it happens. We did this for rolls-royce turbines offshore and ran one for 2 months and then the other for 1 month with the idea to increase the run hour differential. The 1-month difference in run duration was all that we could get roll-royce to accept without having to apply preservation to the machine that was not running for that 1 month. Also, you could consider using your control system to initiate this, with the control room operator only having to accept that the system can change-over pumps. The other alternative is to run a real duty-standy whereby the standby only runs when the duty is under maintenance or has failed... but this is much harder for most people to accept and you then really need to make sure you set up your maintenance regime in your CMMS accordingly as you will need to test the start of the standby pump for hidden failures and need to think about preservation requirements for the machine that is not running for pro-longer periods.
  3. I thought I would just share a bit of an update on the online Maintenance Planning & Scheduling course: I have finished all the course content and am at the moment scripting the course modules so that I can start recording by the end of April with a launch late May. I have uploaded a set of sample slides into a gallery in case you're interested to see what the material looks like. This is just a random set of slides from a few of the modules. Link to Slide Gallery: https://community.roadtoreliability.com/gallery/category/6-maintenance-planning-scheduling-course/ The launch in May will most likely be a pilot program for 20-30 students to iron out any bugs in the learning management system etc. These students will get a significant discount on the course (40%) in return for providing feedback and a course testimonial. Despite the big discount these students will get lifetime access to the course. If you're interested in the pilot program please express your interest in the course, if you have not done so already.
