EquipThink . . . to achieve optimal results

EquipThink addresses both stationary and mobile equipment. The goal is to operate the equipment effectively and efficiently while extending the life and reliability of the equipment. This book focuses on asking the right questions and thinking strategies to improve performance (employee, job, and business performance). The power of asking questions is that questions can apply to many different tasks, equipment, and work environments. The types of question donít change but the answers may vary depending on the circumstances. The input-process-output model is very useful for identifying questions important to your job.

To use the thinking process, you need to focus on variables (e.g., temperature, force, composition, size, quantity, location, rpm) that you must use to operate, monitor, adjust, or make responses. Issues affecting equipment life and reliability are also addressed. A Job Aid lists the thinking questions you can use to operate equipment effectively and efficiently and to extend the life and reliability of the equipment. Learning activities help you apply the strategies to your work and home environment.
