    • A servomechanism, or servo for short, is a type of automatic control system using feedback for precise positioning or for speed control of a motor. Servos and their drives are found in many industrial applications including robotics and machine speed control.

Introduction to Instrumentation and Control

  • Industrial Instrumentation and Control Overview
    • Instrumentation and control technicians maintain the safe and efficient operation of industrial measurement and control systems. A broad knowledge of multiple disciplines is required to effectively work with and troubleshoot instrumentation systems; physics, chemistry, mathematics, electronics, mechanics, and control theory all need to be applied to some extent. An instrument technician must be able to synthesize and apply this knowledge to real applications. The continued addition of new technologies adds to the challenge. For existing industrial facilities, new equipment is phased in for specific applications and legacy technologies typically remain. It is very common to find state-of-the-art instrumentation next to decades-old instruments, such as digital networks running alongside pneumatic signal tubes or microprocessor-based sensors mounted next to mercury switches. A competent instrumentation and control technician must be comfortable working with old and new technologies, and also have a sound knowledge of measurement principles and system interactions.
  • Principles of Measurement
    • The fields of measurement and instrumentation involve very specific terminology for describing instrument performance characteristics. A technician routinely encounters these terms and principles on the job, typically in the form of instrument specifications. Additionally, many of the routine tasks performed are related to instrument calibration, and are based on basic measurement principles to ensure instrument performance is in conformance to specifications.
  • Industrial Signal Standards
    • A technician may encounter a wide variety of signal standards based on the type of industrial processes and, depending on the age of the facility, possibly multiple generations of standards. A background in common analog and digital standards provides a technician with perspective, necessary for understanding the specific standards used in a specific facility, as well as the reasons for their use.

Maintenance Management

  • Introduction to Maintenance
    • Whether a ship at sea, a car in your driveway or an 800 MW electrical generator at a power plant, all equipment is subjected to wear. Sometimes the wear is in the form of corrosion from exposure to chemicals or harsh atmospheric conditions. Sometimes it is due to friction or heat. Continued wear eventually results in failure of the equipment. Equipment is designed to perform a specific function over a defined time period. Excessive wear reduces the lifespan causing early failures. Whatever the cause, it is the inspection, repair, and replacement of components, known as maintenance that keeps the equipment running. 
  • Condition-Based Maintenance
    • Condition-based Maintenance, or CBM, is the process of measuring and analyzing a parameter that has a direct relationship to the health, or operational, condition of equipment. The goal of CBM is to identify and correct equipment degradation prior to failure. CBM is also known as condition monitoring, or performance monitoring, or Predictive Maintenance, which is abbreviated as PdM. There are a wide range of predictive technologies that support CBM. The table highlights typical applications for some of the more common predictive maintenance technologies and their applications.
  • Parts Management and Inventory Control
    • Parts management and inventory control are essential parts of every industry. Decisions concerning parts and inventory must involve an effective management program. Without this program, major shutdowns, diminished safety, lost costs, and environmental crisis may plague your business.
  • Preservation
    • Numerous items may be required to be kept in storage for many years. It is essential that proper methods of storage and preservation be applied so that items do not deteriorate, lose some of their properties, and/or become unusable.
  • Preventive Maintenance Programs
    • Periodic maintenance, performed to extend the life of equipment and reduce operating costs, is known as preventive maintenance. When you change the oil in your car, it is preventing premature failure of the engine. Your mechanic may tell you to change it every 3000 miles. Where does this number come from?
  • Workflow and Controls
    • An important part of maintenance is a structured control program. This program provides a means to provide instructions for the maintenance technician through work orders. Work order results are recorded to provide a history of performance both of the technician and of the equipment. Performance of maintenance is scheduled for equipment access, cost control and to maximize equipment uptime. Planning the performance of jobs allows pre-staging of parts, tools and even pre-briefing of technicians on performance of work to increase efficiency. Tracking of performance through a series of key performance indicators will allow continuous improvement of the maintenance organization. 
  • Procedure Writing Best Practices
    • Procedure writing is both an art and a science. Well written procedures reduce the number of errors and omissions in operations and maintenance, as well as assist less experienced personnel to perform complex tasks efficiently and effectively. 

Organization-Based Maintenance Systems

  • Overview of Reliability Centered Maintenance
    • Reliability centered maintenance or RCM can be broadly defined as a maintenance planning process used to determine the maintenance requirements of physical assets in an operating environment. This module explores the features of the RCM process and key aspects of the methodology to implement it.
  • Total Productive Maintenance
    • Effective maintenance planning, particularly proactive planning, is tantamount to success in the modern workplace. Ensuring employees understand how to care for their equipment day to day and during infrequent operations and maintenance will extend its lifecycle and lessen wear. An effective maintenance planning program can minimize unplanned facility downtime and be coordinated with operations to save money during planned shutdowns.
  • Workplace Organization – 5S
    • The workplace environment is important for every aspect of daily operations.  However, being unorganized can result in significant product loss, reduced employee morale, and increased company costs.  The 5S Methodology exists to help establish a streamlined environment where work is processed fluidly with minimal to no interruption.
