Design in Reliability and Maintainability into New Equipment
by Mary Jo Cherney, GE Appliances

It is easier to begin with a design plan for reliability and maintenance at the beginning stages of the process rather than to modify once the equipment is being installed. Factors that we need to make sure are included in the design process are: Safety and Environmental, Reliability, Maintainability, Ease of Operation, and Flexibility of conversion for future products.

Our manufacturing plants need to establish working partnerships with our OEM’s, our maintenance staffs, safety and ergo engineers, operations, sourcing or purchasing departments, so that the equipment we procure will satisfy all the needs of our cross-functional departments that are affected by that piece of equipment.
