What can you expect to learn in I&E : Core Proficiencies?
A major source of process reliability problems in industrial plants is the instrumentation and control system. This session, the first in the series, provides attendees with the foundational elements needed to install and maintain instrumentation and control systems.
In this hands-on skills class, students learn the principles of reliability and how equipment fails. Attendees also learn the principles of effective communication, a vital but often ignored subject. Fundamental field techniques such as: correct use of measurement tools, correct installation of tubing, fittings, gaskets and seals. Proper adjustment of threaded fasteners are taught and in-class applied. Participants review how motors, pumps, and pneumatic systems function and fail. Basic electrical knowledge and schematics are introduced along with an overview of root cause failure elimination process. Application of these learned techniques increases field skill levels, builds personal confidence and develops pride in applied work. A continued utilization of these core and fundamental practices will greatly enhance the probability of assets attaining their correct manufacturing life cycles.
Subjects (included but not limited to):
Introduction to Reliability
Precision Measurement Tools
Precision Tubing and Piping
Gaskets and Seals
Introduction to Schematics and Diagrams
Introduction to Equipment Types
Introduction to Root Cause Failure Elimination
The seminar is aimed towards participants with an instrument and or electrical craft background but production operators and engineers will find the seminar valuable and first line supervision is encouraged to attend to demonstrate advocacy and understanding for renewed essentials.
5 days of formal training for 15 participants. Recommended class make-up is 10 crafts personnel and 5 from the other mentioned roles.
