Today, Canadian Consulting Engineer published an article written by two of our senior functional safety engineers. Dr. Michael Wrinch, founder of Hedgehog Technologies and Matthew Keeler, FS. Eng. shared their insights regarding the importance of good maintenance documentation.
Both of their experience in managing safety-critical projects allows them to understand the full scope of a machine’s lifecycle and use documentation records to outline maintenance strategies.
