Using SPC methods to trigger preventative maintenance and prevent CCP violations

Reliable Plant online reprised one of their earlier articles, Why Trending is important to PdM. The author, Mark Latino, gave a case study describing how a machine maintenance technician used data trending to convince his supervisors that a machine needed preventative maintenance intervention.

I have looked at carrying this process a step further using SPC methods to provide us the signal alerts for preventative maintenance. The presentation was, “Integrating Preventative Maintenance Into HACCP” which I gave at the2005 IFT (Intitute of Food Technologists) Annual Conference. A write up based on the presentation is available on the NWA website as:  Using SPC methods to trigger preventative maintenance and prevent CCP violations .
