A Summary of ART

If you are not familiar with the Asset Reliability Transformation (ART) Process, the 10 phase graphic below provides a high-level summary.

The basic aim is to provide you with a detailed, step-by-step process to guide you through the establishment and ongoing running of a successful, sustainable reliability and performance improvement program. We have defined 10 phases (shown below), 64 steps, and 365 recommended practices. The steps and phases are illustrated in the detailed chart here. Yes, it is pretty detailed and may even appear a little intimidating. But the fact is, it is not easy to implement a successful program; that is why so many programs fail. If you start at the start and take it one step at a time, you will be successful. No question about it.

    The 10 core phases of the Asset Reliability Transformation Process - Mobius Institute

    1. We start with the VALUE phase so that everything you do is aligned with the goals of the business and you have the enthusiastic support of senior management. With that support, you will gain the support of other managers, supervisors, and others in the organization.
    2. We then help you formalize the plan and establish the asset reliability strategy (also known as the strategic maintenance plan) in the STRATEGY phase.
    3. The PEOPLE phase ensures that everyone is motivated, educated, and contributing to the reliability improvement initiative. The true focus of the PEOPLE phase is to develop a culture so that reliability and performance improvement become part of the DNA of the organization.
    4. The CONTROL phase enables us to break out of the reactive maintenance cycle of doom. So many organizations suffer from constant breakdowns, and regardless of how enthusiastic they may be to improve reliability, they just cannot get past the drain on resources and emotions when equipment keeps failing.
    5. The ACQUIRE phase ensures that the contractors and physical assets that come into the plant will not create future reliability issues. Right now, you are importing trouble into the plant – that must end.
    6. The DISCIPLINE phase ensures that everything is done one way, the right way. Procedures, accurate databases, and workflows ensure that equipment is properly installed, maintained, and operated.
    7. The CARE phase ensures that we do not abuse the equipment and thus induce failures and poor performance keeping it clean, calibrated, lubricated, and loved will ensure a long and reliable life.
    8. The ANALYTICS phase allows us to make data-driven decisions. We can learn when to perform maintenance activities, how to adjust performance parameters, where to look for opportunities for improvement, and more.
    9. The EOL phase enables us to learn from our failures; equipment failures, and failure to perform at optimal levels.
    10. The OPTIMIZE phase enables us to learn what we are doing right, and do better, and learn where there are opportunities for improvement, so we can improve. It also ensures we keep a focus on aligning everything we do with the goals of the business is the goals of the business will change.

The Ten Phases of Asset Reliability Transformation® (ART)

By Jason Tranter, ARP

A step-by-step guide to delivering a value-driven reliability and performance improvement initiative

Achieving optimal performance and dependability without safety and environmental incidents is within reach.

It requires a coordinated, plantwide effort, inspired by top management, that addresses culture, systems, and technology, with every action aligned with the goals of the organization. The Asset Reliability Transformation will guide you through that process. With ten major phases, 64 essential steps, and 365 documented recommended practices, it takes the guesswork out of this critically important endeavor and enables you to avoid the bear traps and wrong turns that have plagued the majority of people who have tried before.

Whether you are reviving an existing initiative or embarking on a new transformation, the ART process will enable you to assess your current state and build towards the plant that you, your fellow employees, and the leadership desire.

This book provides a detailed overview of the phases and steps. It is the place you must start. Other books in this series explain the recommended practices in detail.

Launching your Asset Reliability Transformation image

Launching your Asset Reliability Transformation

By Jason Tranter, ARP

Launching your Asset Reliability Transformation

Assessing your current state, developing the business case, and gaining senior executive support

Every reliability improvement initiative that has failed or floundered has lacked sustained leadership from the senior executive. The programs were based on technical “common sense,” not business value, and the lack of leadership meant the culture did not change.

This book explains how to build a solid business case and win senior management support. It lays the foundation for a successful and sustained program: ensuring the needs and risks of the business are clearly understood, assessing the current state, identifying the gaps, establishing targets and priorities, jumpstarting with pilot projects, and building the economic justification.

Appendices explain the economics of reliability (ROI, NPV, IRR, EVA, and more), the value of reliability (OEE, TEEP, safety, and more), Pareto analysis, asset criticality ranking, and selling to senior management.

This book does not just tell you what you should do; it lays out a step-by-step guide for exactly how to do it successfully with eight core steps and 44 detailed recommended practices.

If you want to launch a new program or revive an existing program, this is the place to start.

Breaking Out of the Reactive Maintenance Cycle of Doom image

Breaking Out of the Reactive Maintenance Cycle of Doom

By Jason Tranter, ARP

The CONTROL Phase of the Asset Reliability Transformation

For too long, books have focused on going from “zero to hero,” leaping from reactive maintenance to world-class maintenance, reliability, and business performance in a single bound. Very few succeed…
This book explains 78 recommended practices, in 12 major areas, that will let you regain control of maintenance one small step at a time. It is not about “what” or “why” – you will learn “how” and “when” to make changes.
You will put the fundamentals in place to reduce future failures, see future problems coming, and deal with all maintenance activities in a smooth, consistent, and disciplined manner.
If your goal is to follow the Asset Reliability Transformation (ART) process, then reactive maintenance will present a major roadblock that you must overcome. The CONTROL phase will give you the confidence, credibility, and freedom to launch from good to great.

There are three phases before this one, which we call the CONTROL phase:

VALUE: Understand the needs of the business, assess the current state, create the business plan, and gain senior management support.

PEOPLE: Create a culture where everyone believes in the need to improve reliability and they have the skills, knowledge, and desire to contribute.

STRATEGY: Establish a steering committee, develop an asset strategy (strategic maintenance plan), and develop the plan to grow from the current state to the desired state.

While we recommend that you go through these three phases before embarking upon this phase, we have written this book so that if your primary goal is to break out of the reactive maintenance cycle of doom, you will achieve that goal.
