RELIABILITY PROGRAMS

If this is something that interestests you, or you would like to start a conversation, please feel free to contact us ...

A reliability program is all about coming up with a reliability plan that is a resourced, sequenced, comprehensive and unambiguous course of action to improve reliability performance characteristics. A 'pathway to reliability' if you will. It involves 16 steps dispersed across 5 planning phases: organizational, aspirational, tools, execution and review.

Your reliability plan can't be complex or daunting ... otherwise it will fail. It is all about finding the VITAL FEW tools and activities your organization needs to take the 'next step.'

A reliability plan helps you answer the following fundamental questions ...

Where am I now ... when it comes to reliability performance?

Where do I want to be ... so that reliability actually generates VALUE for me?

What REALLY SIMPLE STEPS do I need to follow to get there?

We don't start with a list of tools and activities and then check off the ones we think will work for us. We don't start with standards or textbooks. We start with understanding our own business and operating model. Then ... and only then do we work out what tool and activities we need to implement as part of the plan. In short, we work out what things we need to do, and don't do anything else that other people 'tell' us to do.

Some of the questions your reliability program will help you asnwer include ...

  • How do I articulate my RAM requirements?

  • What are the implications of trading off my RAM requirements?

  • How can I test against my requirements?

  • How do I implement a Design for Reliability (DfR) program to meet RAM specifications?

  • How can I predict my warranty costs?

  • What are the risks of incorrectly passing and failing formal demonstration tests?

  • How do I plan for in-service reliability monitoring?

  • What is the relationship between RAM requirements and a Performance-Based Contract (PBC)?

  • How do I optimise the maintenance schedules of fielded systems?

  • How do I assess when I should replace my systems?

Whether you already have a program that needs to be reviewed or you are starting from scratch, we can help you ensure your RAM program is delivering what you want from it.
