Using MotorMaster to Track Motor Inventory and Analyze Purchasing Decisions
MetadataShow full item record
MotorMaster 4.0 can be a useful software package for electric motor management decisions in industrial facilities. To be successful, the MotorMaster database must be populated with detailed motor nameplate information. Georgia Tech worked with a large, motor intensive chemical manufacturing plant to collect motor nameplate information on motors 60 hp or larger and populate the motor database. Approximately 130 motors were identified and surveyed. The completed motor database is used to track maintenance actions and to analyze motor replacement options. The approach used to secure and enter motor nameplate data along with examples of purchasing analyses completed will be presented. The success of the MotorMaster software with large motors has convinced the firm to expand its use to smaller horsepower motors.
