Next, based on the evaluation, a progressive training program is tailored to the specific needs of your personnel. This begins the process of building a cohesive team out of not only the vibration core group, but also the managers, supervisors, and technicians. For example, the vibration core group may need substantial and varied technical training on vibration analysis and understanding, monitoring, resonance, and even communication and reporting skills. Key managers and supervisors may need to be trained on the technical as well as financial implications of a Machinery Improvement Program®. Mechanics and technicians may need a better understanding of vibration and its prevention through precision alignment, assembly errors, practical techniques for maximizing bearing life, and general machinery problem solving skills. In addition to instilling the knowledge and developing the skills which are needed, this training will foster a plant-wide practical understanding and new way of thinking which supports the common goal of machinery improvement through precision maintenance.
