How to Manage Your Condition-Based Maintenance Program
Wednesday, March 6 | | 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, Room N255
Maintenance/Technical Issues Track
Members of the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) Joint Helicopter Safety Implementation Team (JHSIT) Helicopter Flight Data Monitoring (HFDM) Industry Working Group’s HUMS Project Team will provide a brief introduction to helicopter vibration, vibration analysis, the concept of condition-based maintenance (CBM), as well as the history of its use. More importantly, the presenters will reveal why CBM is an essential part of a maintenance program, how to properly manage a CBM program, and how it can positively impact the safety culture of an organization.
Participants should walk away with a basic understanding of the principles of CBM, its “interaction” with a proactive safety management system program, the benefits of an effective CBM program, and ideas and resources for CBM implementation.
