Why Attend

Reliability is a cornerstone of any maintenance process.  Get it right and you can enjoy good safety performance, low running costs and a sustainably high production level at the right quality.  Reliable plants are usually safer and cite a higher level of morale.  Lose control of reliability and operations become less predictable, more chaotic and much more difficult to control.

This is a highly practical course that includes the latest thinking in reliability improvement, how to gain maximum benefit for minimum effort and how to develop bespoke reliability strategies that will integrate effectively with other campaigns.  This will include methods and tools as well as the Carcharodon Model of Excellence to add structure and enable participants to break this complex subject into smaller, more understandable parts.

Reliability is not the responsibility of maintenance alone and outstanding performance can only be achieved with a strategy that includes operations, design, materials and contractors.  This course is based upon our Model of Excellence for bringing all these considerations together as one to achieve pace-setter standards.


Course Methodology

This is an interactive course.  There will be open question and answer sessions, regular group exercises and activities, videos, case studies and presentations on best practice and the fundamentals of reliability improvement.  Participants will have the opportunity to share with the facilitator and other participant on what works well and not so well for them, as well as work on issues from their own organizations.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain how pace-setters achieve outstanding reliability performance and how to use the Carcharodon Model of Excellence
  • Develop reliability programs that align with the unique needs of their business, asset and maintenance strategies
