•             Alignment & balancing improve the reliability of the equipment.

  • Who should attend:
  • Engineering Executives
  • Maintenance Managers
  • Planning Engineers
  • Maintenance & Reliability Engineers
  • Mechanical & Electrical Engineers
  • Program Brief:

This course is a combination of reliability improvement (through precision maintenance practices), Condition monitoring and root cause failure analysis and provides the best all-round approach to reducing maintenance costs and improving availability. The key is that with the VA Level-II course, you will transition from being a person who is primarily capable of collecting data to a person who can diagnose faults on the critical machinery, and in some cases, prevent or correct them.

  • Key Takeaways:
  • How a well-designed program, and the RCM approach (with precision balancing, alignment, lubrication and resonance control), will improve the OEE and therefore the bottom line
  • The condition monitoring technologies: acoustic emission, infrared analysis (thermography), oil analysis, wear particle analysis, motor testing – via supplementary training
  • How machines work – via supplementary self-study via the “Equipment Knowledge” section
  • How to select the correct measurement location and axis, and collect good, repeatable measurements
  • How to analyse vibration spectra, time waveforms and phase measurements
  • How to diagnose a wide range of fault conditions: unbalance, eccentricity, misalignment, bent shaft, cocked bearing, looseness, rolling element bearings faults, journal bearing faults, gearbox faults, resonance, and other conditions
  • Key Features:

You will come away from the course with a solid understanding of:

  • Vibration Analysis details & live case studies
  • Maintenance Strategies
  • Implementation of Successful Condition Monitoring Plan
  • Learn how to Prepare Vibration Analysis report
  • Learn the Execution plan of Vibration Analysis work order
  • Key Benefits:
  • Great deal to learn, that will help you to perform your role with confidence. In this course you will:

• Increase your knowledge on maintenance practices &the common condition monitoring technologies

• Increase your knowledge about data collection, testing techniques, sensor types

• Learn a great deal about signal processing and the settings of your vibration analyzer

• Increase your knowledge of spectrum analysis, time waveform analysis, and phase analysis and why these tools are used by the vibration analyst

• Learn about common failure modes and how to detect them, including unbalance, misalignment, looseness, resonance, pump/fan/compressor vane, cavitation, turbulence, gearbox & bearing failures

• Learn about precision shaft alignment and soft foot correction

• Learn about single and two-plane balancing

• Learn the basics of setting alarm limits: band alarms, and mask/envelope alarms

Seminar on “Post COVID-19 Global Supply Chain Crisis”

Seminar on “Post COVID 19 Global Supply Chain Crisis”

A joint seminar was held by FPCCI and DHA Suffa University on “Post COVID 19 Global Supply Chain Crisis” on 16th December, 2021 in the Executive Lecture Theater at DHA Suffa University.  The seminar was attended by DSU faculty, staff and Industry representatives.

Ms. Farhat Umar, Director PDC & CSR and Senior Lecturer Supply Chain management kicked off the event by discussing how the Global Supply Chain Crisis unfolded post COVID 19, leading to high inflation rates throughout the world.  She discussed the cascading impact that supply chain disruptions including container shortages, cargo ships traffic jams on sea, truck driver shortages, component delays and port congestion had on the global economy.  She elaborated how after a global recession, the world saw a dip in real GDP in 2020 followed by higher demand of goods with limited supply which has led to global inflation, rising prices of food, brent oil and a rise in inequality throughout the world.  She also discussed how Supply Chains are will become regionalized going forward, and businesses will learn to do Business Continuity Planning to survive similar challenging circumstances.

The chief guest of the event, Mr. Haif Lakhani, Vice President of FPCCI gave a detailed account of how the Pakistani Businessmen managed and mitigated the Supply Chain disruptions.  He explained how Pakistan textile sector has seen a global rise in demand for their products like never before.  Similarly a number of new opportunities have emerged in the wake of COVID- 19, and there are many opportunities for young people as the country steadily moves towards industrialization.

Mr. Naqi Azam, Advisor to VC DHA Suffa University discussed how Disaster Management, Blockchain and Supply Chain management are gaining importance globally.  He moderated a panel discussion where he unveiled exciting new foreign blended Supply Chain Management programs that the University is planning to launch in 2022.  He discussed new opportunities in Supply Chain Management for the young generation.

The Vice Chancellor of DSU, Dr. Afzal Haque gave closing remarks at the seminar.  He summarized the Supply Chain crisis, its impact on Pakistan and the way forward.

Finally, Mr. Tausef Aziz, Convener at FPCCI and founder of Karachi Global Market (KGM) gave a brief introduction to his organization which will give students of Universities in Karachi a chance to market their business ideas to a larger public.  He explained how students can get involved in the initiative.

Seminar on “Post COVID-19 Global Supply Chain Crisis”

Session on “Soft Skills in the 21st Century”

On Wednesday 20th October, 2021 the Professional Development Center, DHA Suffa University organized a one-day training program on “Soft Skills in the 21st Century” for the benefit of the faculty & non-teaching staff of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and the Computer Engineering Departments.

The session was led by Mr. Noor Ali who has an experience of 25 years in the Silicon Valley, working with an organization like CISCO he gained experience in New Product Launch, Supply Chain Management, Product Life cycle Management and Cost Reduction Strategies.

Mr. Ali is an educationist and a Career Counselor with a passion to mentor and coach people to achieve their career objectives.

He eloquently briefed the audience about the strategies to overcome the gap between the industry and academia. He shared his thoughts and designs on effective teaching and how an instructor can engage and motivate his/her students. He also shared his views on how the 3-Ds of teaching styles i.e Directing, Discussing and Delegating can promote learning and how this can mutually benefit the teacher and the learners.

Acquisition of time-management skills was stressed by the speaker. Prioritizing and multitasking were regarded as need of the day. Lastly, he spoke to the audience about the seven C’s of communication. He very eloquently explained the use and effectiveness of the principles of communication.

The session was concluded with a Q&A session followed by a vote of thanks and presentation of a plaque of appreciation to Mr. Noor Ali by Engr. Prof. Dr. Muhammad Afzal Haque, Vice Chancellor, DHA Suffa University.
