Reliability Leadership: How to Engage People in the Culture of Reliability

TRC-2018 Learning Zone 47:20
by Luis Alberto Tilleria, Schlumberger SPM Shaya

In the industry, it is intended to implement the Asset Management Strategies supported by Reliability Engineering, one of the biggest challenges in implementing complex methodologies, is the difficult task of convincing people to win adherents, obtain the support and commitment of the personnel involved in the area of production, maintenance and projects, as well as, the senior executives of the organization. It is important to demonstrate that Reliability Engineering contributes to reduce operational risk, improve decision making and increases environmental care and safety to people, as well as sustainability, productivity, and profitability of processes. It is required that not only a strategic and technical implementation plan be drawn up, but this strategic plan must also contain a marketing, training, and communications plan for the staff. This will be demonstrated with practical and complex examples of how these methodologies were helping the staff to get involved to support the implementation of the Reliability Engineering Management. Demonstrating how these complex techniques can improve the quality of life in the workforce, increase the profitability of the process and contribute to the improvement of safety in the environment, makes it possible to obtain the necessary support to achieve the success of these Asset Management programs.

Human Capital Management:  An Uptime Element, Not an HR Program

TRC-2018 Learning Zone 29:28
by Sean Mullan, 3M

As Reliability professionals, we need to rely on our Human Resources Departments as business partners. But at the end of the day, WE are responsible for managing our Human Capital. Do you have a strategy to manage human capital in your maintenance organization? Can you clearly articulate this strategy? How has the skills gap affected your organization and what are you doing to overcome the skills gap? Are you ready for the “Silver Tsunami”, and have you established clear plans for succession? Defining a career pathway in a Reliability and Maintenance organization helps ensure the health of that organization. The pathway must be clear and it starts with educating and developing the talent pool. Having an employment branding strategy helps target and attract the best talent. Assessing the talent pool and the current workforce ensures the right candidates are hired, and defines internal opportunities for training. Establishment of a progression system for technicians improves retention and engagement of employees. This presentation will describe key factors and tactics that together define one strategy for effective Human Capital Management.

So, the approach does not change much in the different industries or in the different departments.
