Why your Equipment Keeps Failing (STOP Doing This!)


Are you frustrated with the time and money wasted because your equipment keeps failing? It takes more than replacing a part or repairing equipment to keep it running smoothly. Stop doing this! Even though it sounds intuitive, only focusing on repairing the equipment is not the solution. What you need to do is identify the failure(s) using troubleshooting tools to ensure you have identified all of them, and take it a step further by analyzing the failures for root causes. Then, you develop corrective actions for the root causes to stop the failures for good!

How do you identify failures with troubleshooting tools and analyze them for root causes?

A lot of equipment folks stop after troubleshooting the problem, and fix the failures they find (and not the root causes). This may help get the equipment up and running but it is not a long-term solution to why your equipment keeps failing. There is a process you can follow: Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting & TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis.

Equifactor® expert, Ken Reed, shows us how you start your TapRooT® investigation into an equipment failure, bring Equifactor® in as a troubleshooting tool to identify the failure(s), and finish up your investigation. Watch this very simple example about a failed pump.
