MetadataShow full item record
Based on W. E. Forsthoffer’s Text “Forsthoffer’s Best Practice Handbook for Rotating Machinery” published by Elsevier in 2011, Michael and William Forsthoffer will present 20 Machinery Best Practices (17 specifically selected for the METS III Attendee’s and 3 or more if time allows of attendee requested Best Practices). The Best Practices to be presented are based on our Work in the Middle East, India, Pakistan and Asia since 1990. This short course will present all of its 220 Best Practices which are designed for the Plant Machinery Engineers, Reliability Engineers, Maintenance and Operations Personnel. We have found that one of the major issues in Plants Worldwide is the low implementation rate of Machinery Reliability Improvement Recommendations. The objective of the Handbook and this Short course is to present information that we have gathered over the last 25 years concerning machinery selection, design, installation, commissioning, plant reliability procedures and communication that will enable plant personnel to attain the highest possible implementation rate of their recommendations to management.
