Achieving a World-Class Lubrication Program – Led by Wes Cash, Noria Corporation

Lubrication Programs hinge on how well they are managed and the focus on the early detection and elimination of failure root-causes.  Few managers are able to transform their lubrication programs into world-class because they fall victim to the same school of thought as their predecessors.  By changing how we view lubrication work and evolving our practices, we can tap into the incredible potential of lubrication excellence.  The industry has realized only a fraction of the opportunities that are achievable through lubrication-enabled reliability.  This workshop takes abstract thoughts and turns them into concrete tasks that must be done to enhance your program and your way of thinking. Learning Objectives:

  • What world-class lubrication looks like
  • How maintenance decisions control machine life expectancy
  • The differences between lubricants and lubrication
  • Five core attributes of a world-class lubrication program
  • The power of observation
  • How people and work culture affect the state of lubrication and reliability
