Reliability and Maintenance
podcast episode with speaker Fred Schenkelberg
Both reliability and maintenance activities work to reduce failures and downtime. Perfect reliability of a system would eliminate the need for maintenance. Perfect maintenance would keep even poorly designed (reliability-wise) operating.
Together, the work of reliability and maintenance professionals can achieve more than each team working separately. Each brings a set of insights and skills to the conversation. Working together means improving the design of a system so it’s easier to maintain. It also means the maintenance teams’ day-to-day observations provide meaningful information to the reliability team.
Let’s explore how these two related fields are bound together in many ways. What works well, and what could work better?
