iLearnInteractive Mastering Vibration Analysis: Learn :: Try :: Apply iLearnInteractive Overview Why do you need training? Why do you need analysis assistance? What is iLearnVibration? Do you need training? iLearnInteractive There is a HUGE amount to learn So many technical terms and principles So many analysis techniques and fault conditions Where do you turn when you have questions? Books, technical papers and Web sites That’s a lot of reading, and a lot of clicking! iLearnVibration training iLearnInteractive Solution: iLearnVibration Step-by-step, fully narrated training The slides are read to you You can just sit back and listen, like a video Or you can sit up and take control Easy to search for the material that answers your questions Available 24 hours per day! iLearnInteractive iLearnVibration training iLearnInteractive iLearnVibration training iLearnInteractive iLearnVibration training iLearnInteractive iLearnVibration training We cover everything from the most basic, fundamental topics (for the absolute beginner) to more advanced topics like phase analysis, diagnosing machine faults, high frequency bearing analysis techniques, and much more There are over 1800 ‘slides’ with over 7.5 hours of narration (voice recordings) There are also over 400 quiz questions The quizzes help you to check that you have understood the material Do you need more than ‘just’ training? iLearnInteractive Do you learn from training alone? It is essential that you are taught the terms, techniques and skills To prepare for the ‘real world’, you need to practice your new skills You need the chance to practice on machines with known faults – practice makes perfect Solution: iLearnVibration [Professional] Case histories and virtual test rig iLearnInteractive Case history with historical data iLearnInteractive Case history with ‘live’ data iLearnInteractive Virtual test rig with ‘live’ data What do you do when you are on your own? iLearnInteractive Once the ‘training’ has ended… Everything you have learned will help… Practice with case histories will help… But what about when you have questions? What do you need? You will need refresher training You need quick access the information most often required You need help with spectrum analysis Refresher Training iLearnInteractive The training is available 24 hours per day Look for the material that answers your question Utilize the bookmarks for have created Search on specific fault conditions Search on specific machine types Look up special test settings Review how to set up your database And so on… Search the training material iLearnInteractive Search the training Reference Center iLearnInteractive The Reference Center allows you to… Search the training material View a tree of common faults (imbalance, etc.) and a tree of common symptoms (sidebands, harmonics, etc.) With supporting information and links to the training Convert units, view forcing frequencies, and more Refer to an excellent glossary iLearnInteractive Reference Center: Search iLearnInteractive Reference Center: Fault tree iLearnInteractive Reference Center: Symptoms tree iLearnInterpreter iLearnInteractive But when it comes to spectrum analysis… First you have to identify the patterns Harmonic and sideband series Then you have to determine the likely reason for those patterns Imbalance, looseness, bearing faults, broken rotor bars, etc. iLearnInterpreter iLearnInteractive iLearnInterpreter performs both tasks… It studies the spectrum, looks at all of the peaks, then places markers on the key series It highlights each of the harmonic and sideband series It will find patterns that you did not even know were there Then it provides an explanation for each pattern Imbalance, looseness, bearing faults, broken rotor bars, etc. And it provides an explanation, with links to the training material (if you own it) iLearnInterpreter iLearnInteractive iLearnInterpreter works with all major vibration analysis programs CSI RBMWare (Machinery Health Manager), Entek/Rockwell Odyssey, SKF Machine Analyst, Commtest ASCENT, DLI ExpertALERT, PRÜFTECHNIK OMNITREND, SPM Condmaster Pro, and others It works by ‘looking’ at the spectrum on the screen You don’t have to make any preparations Just drag the ‘helping hand’ from the system tray to the graph iLearnInteractive Interpreter Bottom line: iLearnInteractive With training and assistance: You will detect and diagnose faults earlier You will have greater confidence in your judgment You can improve teamwork and increase cooperation You will often get an earlier warning of a machine fault There will be fewer unexpected machine failures iLearnInteractive Common questions Do I really need iLearnVibration? How often will I use iLearnVibration? Does iLearnVibration mean I can’t go to class? Will I be able to teach myself? How can I justify the product? How do I convince my manager? Common questions: Do you really need iLearnVibration? iLearnInteractive “I have been doing just fine without it!” What you don’t know can hurt you • Are you sure there are no gaps in your knowledge? A great deal can be achieved if everything is done correctly • But how do you know? Have you ever had a question and wanted a quick answer? Have you ever seen something unusual in a spectrum? Have you ever had to train a new staff member? Common questions: How often will I use iLearnVibration? iLearnInteractive “Will I use it after an initial training session?” Absolutely – you will use it over and over! It was not designed to just provide a once-off course Lots of our users report that they use iLearnVibration more than once per week • iLearnInterpreter gets used far more frequently Common questions: Will I still go to class? iLearnInteractive “But shouldn’t I go to training class?” iLearnVibration is not designed to replace training class • You can still go to class • Interaction with the instructor and other ‘students’ is important and helpful But courses have their limitations • Most people only retain 30% of what was taught • Who/what do you turn to when you return? Solution: Do both! • Get iLearnVibration before you go to class for greatest effectiveness Common questions: Will I be able to teach myself? iLearnInteractive “I don’t learn well unless I am in a structured class” Remember, iLearnVibration is not designed to replace the training class • It is more useful as a source of refresher training and a source of answers to tough questions • You don’t have to sit down with the system for hours at a time: you either use it when you have questions, or you can take one lesson at a time, once per day – whatever you like! Common questions: I am not sure we can afford it? iLearnInteractive “Some general training CD are just $150” iLearnVibration is far more than just a “training CD” It contains very specialized information It includes tools to help you do your job You spent “thousands” on your vibration monitoring system: • A relatively small additional investment will help you to gain maximum benefit • What you learn, and the faults Interpreter helps you find, could result in “thousands” of dollars saved/avoided in downtime/repairs/parts Common questions: How can I convince my manager? iLearnInteractive “I am not sure my manager will approve it” You may need to admit you need help… You need to try and put the benefits in terms that relate to your situation • The need for staff training • Was there a fault you missed that may have been caught if you owned our product? • Look at our customer list – can you see a competitor of yours?
