What I love most is finding problems, and fixing them with a permanent fix, not
just patching all the time. I love predictive and preventative maintenance the
most. It's a great job, you are rewarded for hard work with real results, such
as a decrease in down time, cost savings associated with planned shutdowns
instead of emergency work. Thermal vision, vibration analysis and ultrasound,
not to mention alignment. Mis-alignment is the main enemy of plant equipment
today. I love this field, there are so many opportunities to excel.
