“Reliability, safety and profit are all aligned and these best practice organizations are leading the way. Even though some organizations may still not practice proactive reliability approaches, it has been shown to have a direct impact on safety by eliminating defects and reducing emergency situations,” states Uptime Magazine Publisher and CEO, Terrence O’Hanlon. “In addition this special group of maintenance reliability professionals help their organizations meet the triple bottom line of economic prosperity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility by managing physical assets in a responsible way.”

“In recent years we have noticed many companies have created new Executive level positions such as Chief Mechanical Officer (CMO), and new Vice President titles and roles such as VP Asset Management, Vice President Reliability and Vice President Maintenance as acknowledgment of proactive maintenance reliability as an enabler of productivity and profit rather than the outdated context of maintenance as a cost center. They also recognize the contribution that higher reliability makes to safety,” continued O’Hanlon. “It is very satisfying for us to provide visibility for these superior programs so that more reliability improvements can be leveraged both inside and outside of winning organizations.”
Since 2006, Uptime Magazine has honored some of the most outstanding high-performance maintenance teams in the world for the results they produce with the Uptime Best Maintenance Reliability Program Awards. What began as a simple way to acknowledge special accomplishments has evolved into a valuable reliability improvement exercise as everyone who participates in the Uptime Award evaluation process discovers program benefit and performance improvements.
