Improving Reliable Manufacturing® … Precision Maintenance®
Presented by Ian McKinnon, Founding Partner, Reliability Solutions

With the onslaught of baby boomer retirees, it now becomes imperative that real, practical and measurable hard-skill set improvements are applied in a systematic and logical manner to provide sustainable results. Within manufacturing today, are we attacking failure sources, or just handling symptoms? Are we constantly repairing/rebuilding machinery, or are we improving manufacturing performance and reducing costs? The Reliable Manufacturing® overview is a cross organizational presentation that takes the time to introduce where Precision Maintenance® begins and what it can encompass. The session uses practical and real world dynamic demonstrations to recognize, realize and reinforce the results of; misalignment, unbalance, common assembly misconceptions, case distortion, torqueing practices, resonance, and other errors found in today’s manufacturing world. The presentation provides an introduction of realized field results gained in: asset reliability improvement, production enhancement, maintenance cost reduction and energy conservation. Attendees will be provided with a set of take home, “in-the-field” precision observations. These observations can assist you to determine current asset reliability state, assess the need for and provide immediate opportunities of just where to begin at your facility. Participants will find the presentation, timely, informative and loaded with real and practical tips to improve Reliable Manufacturing® within their facilities. Come prepared to think differently!

Software Classes

Make plans to stay an extra day and attend a full day of software training. Our trainers will be on hand to review both our DMS and Spectralyzer software programs. Owning the ultrasound equipment is one thing, utilizing the tracking, reporting and analysis tools in our software programs is how you know you’re getting the most out of your investment!

DMS Software Course

Learn how to use all the features of the Data Management System such as how to create application centered reports, SQL reports,custom reports, how to imbed images in the reports as well as how to attach images to records and other data fields, the logistics of setting a route, creating trend charts, setting alarm levels, using the data base manager, configuring lists, setting preferences, uploading and downloading routes, and much more…

Spectralyzer Course

Sound analysis made easy. This course will give you an in-depth understanding of how to get the most out of spectral analysis. Learn the basics of the spectra, time series, dual and waterfall views. In addition the course will review how to customize your screens, setting and loading configurations, using overlays, working with cursors, changing values, setting the harmonic cursor, changing modes from Hz to CPM exporting plots using the bearing fault calculator.

Certification Exams

Certification Exams

As part of our commitment to professional development we are pleased to offer our attendees an opportunity to earn certification! We will be administering the following exams offered by The Society for Maintenance & Reliability Professionals (SMRP).

Introducing the newly established Certified Asset Management Assessor Certification. Presented by SMRP & the World Partners in Asset Management, this certification is geared towards individuals currently pursuing ISO 55000 site certification or those facilitating asset management assessments.

The Certified Asset Management Assessor (CAMA) certification establishes an individual’s credentials in asset management knowledge and comprehension, globally.


The Certified Maintenance & Reliability Professional (CMRP) Program, an ANSI accredited certification, is the number one credentialing program for validating the knowledge, skills, and abilities of M&R professionals. Every facility needs at least one CMRP on its team, and most should have more, as CMRPs have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to ensure operations efficiency and workforce productivity. The exam is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.


The Certified Maintenance and Reliability Technician (CMRT) program validates  the critical knowledge, skills and abilities needed by M&R technicians to ensure reliable facility operations.Stand out from the crowd and gain instant credibility and recognition within the maintenance community by taking – and passing – the CMRT exam, an invaluable credential recognized industry-wide.The exam is available in English only.
