Implementing Reliability Programs
Carl and Fred discussing the challenges associated with implementing reliability programs.
Join Carl and Fred as they discuss the execution step of the reliability process. Specifically, how to work with project teams that do not have excellent project management systems, and still successfully execute the tasks in your reliablity program.
- Question: does your company have a system in place to execute project tasks? How mature is it?
- If so, you can utilize that system to help with reliability plan execution
- If not, there are ways to successfully implement reliability tasks in spite of lack of infrastructure.
- How does reliability integrate with the product development process?
- What mechanisms are in place (or not) to execute project tasks?
- How to avoid “pushing on a rope”?
- How enlightened is your management on the subject of reliability?
- Be persuasive in why reliability matters
- Management should participate in the development of the reliability plan; this will help with execution
- Learn project managment to better support the execution
- Reliability plan tasks need to be sufficiently detailed to support execution
- Get on the agenda of management meetings
- Reliability plan does not exist in isolation; it needs to integrate with overall project managment
- Ask project team, “How can I help you achieve your reliablity objectives”?
- Importance of building relationships and trust
- If project execution does not have sufficient infrastructure in your company, you need to step up and support the execution
