About this title

This book is NOT for you if your assets or plant…

  • Are experiencing no failures
  • Have no safety incidents
  • Are performing at designed or more capacity
  • Have operators and maintainers who are taking care of assets as if they own them
  • Have all stakeholders involved and aiming to improve asset performance to realize more value
  • Have no value leakage from Capex to Opex
  • Collect quality data that is analyzed and used to make improvements on a regular basis
  • Have a staff that knows continuous improvement is a way of life...not a program of the month
