TPM Video Series: Using Transparency Sheets to Increase Reliability
TPM colored transparency sheets are great tools to identify normal equipment operating conditions from abnormal.
My short instructional video outlines how to use TPM transparency sheets as a visual control to mark the normal operating range for a gauge. The value of the gauge marking is that it provides a very clear and quick way for operators to identify if equipment is running properly or not. This knowledge allows an operator to act quickly in the event that equipment is not running properly. Such as fast response may prevent a large failure from occuring.
If you are not currently using TPM transparency sheets as visual controls you should strongly consider it. For such a small investment the results can be significant. Check out the video below and start using transparency sheets today!
