Ten Nuggets to Make Reliability a Reality at Your Plant

Mike Bacidore returns from a conference with nuggets of wisdom for improving reliability... and if you improve reliability you improve safety. The majority of articles I read are a rehash of information I've read before. In this article Mike brings a fresh perspective and ten truly valuable tips for improving reliability by using foundational principles.

Mike is actually reporting on a presentations by Allied Reliability Group Principal Doug Plucknette. He writes:

Excuses are one of the most common hurdles to implementing a reliability culture in a plant. They’re the list of reasons why reliability-centered maintenance (RCM) won’t work. Plucknette reminded us of a few:
  • My boss doesn't support this.
  • We're so far behind, what's the point?
  • The operations group doesn't get it.
  • We don't have the tools or training to start.
Plucknette recommended starting with some basic blocking and tackling:
  • Do what you say you're going to do.
  • Bring data to support the need for change.
  • Rally and reinforce supporters.
  • Publish all successes to build the business case.
  • There's so much you can do without having to say, "I need more money."

But these are not the ten nuggets of wisdom you'll get from this article. Use this link to read about how to improve reliability in your plant.
