Breaking out of the reactive maintenance cycle of doom
Lessons: 13. How to end reactive maintenance.
Subscription duration: 3 months
Probably the most common factor that stops reliability improvement programs dead in their tracks is the inability to end reactive maintenance. It is extremely common for people to struggle to make improvements when they are constantly being dragged back into solving equipment failures.
Reactive maintenance is costly and dangerous. You need a plan to end reactive maintenance – it won’t end simply because you’ve decided to implement condition monitoring, work management, or you have a new asset strategy. You need to tackle reactive maintenance head-on. You need to treat it like a fire, not by improving your firefighting skills, but by removing the fuel and oxygen.
These lesson modules were taken from the Asset Reliability Practitioner ARP-L course for Reliability Program Leaders, but this course will also be of interest to reliability engineers, maintenance managers, planners/schedulers, storeroom management, and condition monitoring practitioners. The focus of the course is the CONTROL Phase of the Asset Reliability Transformation, but it is not necessary to understand the rest of the ART process in order to benefit from this course.
Note that you will be credited with this course fee if you upgrade to the ARP-L course.
The course includes approximately 3 hours of video lessons, delivered by Jason Tranter, the founder, and CEO of Mobius Institute.
