The primary execution step for the program is to consistently monitor the plant machinery at an interval of about one month. To execute this, each calendar month is broken down into four full weeks and the plant is assigned to be monitored during that calendar week each month.
Monthly monitoring is required for all equipment that is on the plant monitoring list. Monthly routes will be sampled by trained technicians or engineers who are at least ISO Category 1 certified. Reporting of monthly findings shall be conducted by ISO Category 3 or 4 certified personnel. Certification provided by an accredited certifying body such as the Vibration Institute.
