PROVE IT

Is your fluid analysis program effective?
Are you focusing on the right factors of your program?
What external factors should you be prepared for?

After playing the latest interactive, high-energy training opportunity for maintenance and reliability professionals, your maintenance team will be able to answer these questions.

POLARIS Laboratories® has developed a fun and team-building exercise designed for maintenance and asset management professionals called PROVE IT.

An effective fluid analysis program can help maintenance teams avoid unexpected downtime, reduce unnecessary maintenance costs and improve the overall health of its most critical assets. This interactive, team-building exercise guides maintenance professionals through the complex decision-making process involved with preventive maintenance. PROVE IT is a fast-paced game appropriate for a wide range of audiences and can be customized to fit specific situations and companies.

PROVE IT will help your team by:

  • Educating on fluid analysis
  • Providing interactive learning opportunities
  • Creating teachable moments
  • Encouraging strategic thinking
  • Promoting behavioral change
  • Helping develop program champions

In the exercise, each player represents their own company and their cards represent a fluid analysis program at one of the company’s many locations.

Focusing on five categories – fluid, technology, people, process and management – players make decisions on how to improve their overall program health and return on investment for the year.

During the course of the game, players experience how their decisions impact the bottom line of their company and are given the chance to realize how their decisions affect their program success.
