An Interview with Steven Dobie
This week on Masterminds in Maintenance, we hear from Steven Dobie, a reliability engineer from Teck Resources who has worked in mining for the last six years across Canada. Steven discusses how understanding failure modes has been critical to his work as a reliability engineer.
Steven brings a unique perspective with a background in mining and shares how he’s creating maintenance and reliability programs specifically to his industry. He touches upon oil analysis and condition monitoring and how they play into the mining industry. Steven argues that reliability involves a longer-term awareness of best practices to maintain an asset, whereas a maintenance activity falls under creating a work order.
