About This Title

Many public and private sector organizations around the world have initiated a reliability and asset management program to drive efficiencies, mitigate risks and manage the asset throughout the entire lifecycle. However, it’s well known that more than seventy percent of those implementations fail to become a long-term sustainable solution, and some of them never get off the ground!

The development and implementation of a reliability and asset management program most often focuses on the technical aspects of the journey and not the cultural journey itself. The journey is filled with challenges, barriers, difficult decisions, successes and failures. How does one understand these items and how should they be approached in advance of the journey?

The Uptime Elements Implementation Virtual Special Interest Group (vSIG) was assembled to analyze the reliability and asset management program journey to glean and present the wisdom, advice and recommendations of those who have made the journey utilizing the five domains of the Uptime Elements. Contributors to this implementation guide have made “the journey,” and thus gained experience in developing, implementing and/or operating a reliability and asset management program. They’ve experienced the ups and downs, the successes and failures and the barriers and challenges, and have the change management experience required to create valuable and sustainable reliability and asset management solutions.

The output of this vSIG has resulted in this Uptime Elements Implementation Guide. This guide is all about the cultural journey, not the technical details. It’s a “must have” if you are looking to improve your reliability and asset management program!
