The ARP-A “Reliability Advocate” program will give you the big picture of how condition-based maintenance fits into a reliability and performance improvement initiative.
Improving the reliability of physical assets takes far more than just monitoring their condition, improving lubrication practices, and making some improvements to the maintenance department. To have a truly successful program you must understand how to add value to the organization and thus gain senior management support.
You must have the support of the entire organization, not just a small group of evangelistic condition monitoring and reliability experts.
You must have a coordinated effort between maintenance, operations/ production, engineering, finance, and the reliability group – no more silos.
