New Article | Reliability is Everybody’s Responsibility
Significant equipment failures can be disastrous, causing death, destruction and organisational bankruptcy.
Inevitably, these disasters will end up being reported on the front page of the newspaper. But as well as these major failures, organisations experience a plague of failures of lesser consequence which, nevertheless, bleed money from profits, cause injuries to workers and members of the public, and result in damage to the planet on which we live.
In this article, we will discuss the importance of Reliability Improvement in avoiding these failures, and the significant benefits that a focus on improving reliability can bring both to organisations and the community at large. We will explore some of the sources of these failures with a view to examining these in more depth in future articles, and discussing approaches and tools that can be used to progressively eliminate or mitigate these failures.
