Execute the Basics of Reliability and Maintenance Well and You Will Get Guaranteed Results. Part 1 (3)
First I would like to tell you about myself and from what perspective I write this article. My world is process industries such as Iron, Steel, Pulp, Power and Wood based industries such as Oriented Strand Board (OSB), Medium Density Fiber (MDF), Chemical, Oil and Gas, Food and Beverage etc. In short all industries where a break down of critical equipment assets results in risk for environmental damage, personal injury, lost quality and volume in throughput or high costs for maintenance. I lose some of my important arguments if reliability is not important because then the maintenance organization has no “revenue”. If reliability is not important, the sense of urgency and importance in the work we do as a maintenance organization is not there.
