About this title

In Volume 6, Operator-Driven Reliability, the author sets a goal to provide a framework that can organize the ODR efforts in an organization to support maintenance initiatives and not conflict with them. For this to occur, the maintenance organization must already be in a mature state. If this is not the case, operations will attempt to do too much with ODR and the initiative will bog down, since maintenance will not be able to properly support the maintenance-related activities of the operations group. This book builds on the previous five volumes and many of the strategies discussed in the previous volumes must be in place to provide the foundation necessary to properly involve operation in maintenance-related activities. By learning how to involve operations in maintenance activities, maintenance personnel are freed-up to focus on higher level predictive and reliability activities, thus increasing equipment uptime.
