Reliability Drives Value – But Who Owns It Under ISO 55000?

Cliff Williams, Corporate Maintenance Manager, ERCO Worldwide

For many years we have seen the term Maintenance and Reliability being used extensively and because of that it has been assumed that the Maintenance departments were responsible for reliability. Is that true? Are there any other influences? And how does reliability figure in ISO 55000, the Asset Management System standard? Obviously we need reliability to derive value but under Asset Management we need to take a fresh approach. Join us to see how reliability is in fact a shared responsibility but how, under ISO 55000 scenarios, the owners are not those normally expected to be involved. As organizations face global competition and reduced budgets, ensuring reliability has become essential for those organizations that wish to succeed on a sustainable basis. Let’s learn how we can ensure it.
