Vibration analysis is a powerful and widely used tool in industry for monitoring rotating machinery. Despite the possibilities offered by the measuring equipment of vibration through technological progress, companies which practice Vibration Based Analysis (VBM) show performance below expectations in terms of machine availability. Our duty then is to develop an approach for the implementation of the VBM taking into consideration the keys to success and avoiding the causes of failure. We carried out an analysis of 30 years of practice of the VBM within a large Moroccan company in the chemical industry, through a collective approach called DCA (in French applied short diagnosis) and a survey among national and international experts in the field of the VBM. The synthesis of these studies has led us to propose a comprehensive and structured approach that comes in 5 phases: inventory, feasibility studies, preparation phase, implementation phase, evaluation and improvement phase.
