Auditing of your lubrication strategies and processes is a popular way to analyse any of the short comings that may yield savings and improvements to reliability and performance. Audits that are typically conducted are often highly time taxing taking several days or weeks to complete. They are often expensive and typically they leave your business with large and extensive reports with very little in the way of meaningful and achievable targets for improvement. We call this Analysis Paralysis”.
It is for this reason that Lubrication Engineering introduced the SnapShot Audit. This auditing method is specifically designed to provide your business with meaningful data that can be acted on immediately and with measurable results. We appreciate that time is valuable so our auditing process takes hours not days or weeks. A typical Power Station for example can usually be completed within 1 day, not a week.
The SnapShot Audit takes a look at all key lubrication aspects to gain an overview of the lubrication strategy maturity; not every single lubrication point within your facility.
What does a SnapShot Audit Involve:
- Lubricant selection & Inventory
