"Maintenance and Reliability Benchmarking"
Global competition has changed the manufacturing landscape forever. Maintenance and reliability are being leveraged worldwide as competitive advantages. But what does good maintenance and reliability look like? Benchmarks that have been quoted for decades are no longer valid. The bar has been raised with best performers approaching failure-free operation with maintenance costs at or below one percent (1%) of replacement asset value (RAV).
Benchmarking has become an essential element of best performing companies. Benchmarking has two components, the measure and comparison of key performance parameters, and the analysis and subsequent correlation of performance to (best) practices. The first of these effectively quantifies the gap between current performance and levels of performance achieved by best performers. The second of these correlates performance to practices employed by those same best performers.
Maintenance and reliability benchmarking has confirmed a significant shift in performance in the twenty-first century. More and more companies around the globe are recognizing the relationship between asset reliability and (maintenance) costs. As a result they are embracing the concept of failure-free operation and are implementing the requisite practices required to reach the highest levels of asset reliability that provide the lowest cost of manufacturing.
This webinar will define maintenance and reliability benchmarking, review what and how it measures, explain the relationship to best practices, and help participants understand the value to be derived from maintenance and reliability benchmarking. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask critical questions to aid in their understanding.

Title: "Reliability & Operational Excellence"
Presenter: Ron Moore, Managing Partner - The RM Group, Inc.
Ron Moore will present compelling data from operating plants which demonstrates that:
1. A reliable plant is a safe plant, is a cost effective plant, is an environmentally friendly plant
2. Reliability comes from a comprehensive process that includes design, procurement, operations and maintenance - you will not have a reliable plant if you only do better maintenance. Rather, you will do more efficiently work that you should not have to do in the first place.
3. He will offer a strategy for implementation that requires executive sponsorship, creation of a production and maintenance partnership with shared measures, and having a structured process for engaging the shop floor in implementation of the changes necessary.
Ron Moore is the Managing Partner of The RM Group, Inc., Knoxville, TN. He travels worldwide working with manufacturing companies in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Africa, and the Far East.
