Asset Reliability = Availability + Performance to Spec
What is Lean and Continuous Improvement?

In life, we proactively watch our diet, exercise, and visit the doctor to keep our heart reliable enough to meet our demands. Manufacturing managers also must work proactively with their maintenance teams to keep equipment running. They can employ methods such as FMECA, PM, PdM, CBM, Asset Criticality, and Root Cause Analysis to focus their efforts to improve asset performance and life cycle.

The Path to ​Reliability

You’re not really lean if you are not reliable also, so…

  1. Identify the critical assets in your value stream. Are procedures in place to ensure these assets deliver their intended value?
  2. Identify the skills and tools needed to maintain your critical assets. Do you have them in-house or have an outside source?
  3. TPM and 5S(6S) support both RCM and lean. Do you have the necessary organizational support to implement these programs?
  4. Most important, is top management engaged and fully committed to a implementing program that truly integrates Lean and RCM? Does everyone understand how these methods will generate long term continuous improvement and value for the customer and the company?
