Cultivate the Right Mindset for Success

To achieve true transformation, a change in mindset is paramount. As Heraclitus wisely noted, “Everything changes except change itself.” To lay the foundation for successful implementation, it’s crucial to challenge the status quo and embrace change. Bearing failures rooted in poor lubrication practices are costly and widespread. But if you don’t assign a euro value to the problem, you won’t find a solution. Lubrication is a top strategic priority, but it’s often overlooked as a profession. Together, let’s elevate the lubrication role, training, and culture.

Building a Strong Lubrication Chain

Your lubrication practices are only as strong as your weakest link. The lubrication chain includes management, lubrication engineers/strategists, and lubrication technicians. Each link is equally important, and when any link lacks awareness or involvement, bearing failures occur. A breakdown in communication leads to lubrication collapse. A culture of awareness, ownership, communication, discipline, control, responsibility, and recognition is essential for lubrication excellence.

Questioning the Approach

Why do we lubricate the way we do? It’s time to challenge traditional time-based approaches and assumptions-based methods. Accuracy in lubrication calculations depends on the quality of input data, often based on estimates. Wrong assumptions lead to costly errors. The time has come to shift towards an evidence-based approach in lubrication practices.

A Journey Toward Evidence-Based Lubrication

Let’s embark on a journey to implement a mindset that aligns lubrication practices with the principles of Condition Monitoring. Evidence-based lubrication is the answer, driven by three key questions:

  • Does it need grease?
  • How much grease does it need?
  • Is the bearing better now?

By addressing these questions, we empower lubrication technicians to become the first line of defense, aligning lubrication practices with the evidence-based mindset shared by Condition Monitoring professionals.


A Comprehensive Diagnosis for Success
