iBL Graduate of the Month: July 2017

We have a new iBL Graduate of the Month. Congratulations Linda Easterwood from Mosaic for a job well done on your iBL journey!

Linda returned to school full time in pursuit of her degree after working full time for 13 years in fields outside of engineering.  She earned her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from LSU in 2013. Along the way, she worked as a co-op for Mosaic for several semesters.  She was pleased to return to Mosaic in 2014 as a Reliability Engineer. Mosaic has assisted with securing my certifications as Vibration Analysist I, Machinery Lubrication Technician I, Machinery Lubrication Analysist II, and now RMIC.  She hopes to sit for the CMRP exam before the end of the year.

"In a perfect world, the practices taught in the iBL program would be implemented during the planning/development stages of a facility.  Since we do not live in a perfect world, it can be difficult to know where to begin making improvements to practices/documentation in an older facility.  Tools such as criticality can assist with raking the risk a facility’s equipment and assist with identified opportunities to mitigate those risks.  The iBL team of instructors always made themselves available to answer questions and guide me through any coursework I found troublesome.  Thanks for everything!"

Congratulations on all of your successes on your iBL Journey, Linda! Looking forward to seeing many more successes from you in the future. For more information about the iBL process, click below:
