Top 5 Plant Engineering articles, October 2-8Plant Engineering’s top 5 most read articles from October 2-8, covered cognitive engineering, the next generation of RCM, sustainable buildings, bearing upgrades, and creating a winning plant floor culture. Link to each article below.

1. The shocking effects of an arc flash explosion

Most people tend to respect electrical equipment, but they may not understand the dangers that associated with it. One of those dangers is arc flash. In fact, the likelihood of injury from an arc fault is higher than injury from an electric shock.

2. Next generation of RCM: A more rigorous tool

Reliability centered maintenance (RCM) must be seen as a strategy, not a software solution.

3. Tackle the 5 drivers of motor failure with energy-based condition monitoring

Let’s discuss how we can use this information to preserve the health of your motors and motor-driven equipment.

4. Process engineers need new analytics awareness

Improved data management requires a new way of thinking.

5. Five basics to make your Lean and RCM programs cooperate

Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) is the most cost-effective method your plant can use to develop an appropriate maintenance strategy that will keep production on pace with takt time.

This list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on www.plantengineering.com, October 2-8, for articles published within the last two months.
