What is the Journey to Reliable Manufacturing®? To first understand the Journey to Reliable Manufacturing® we must understand what Reliability is. The down and dirty definition is that when I go to turn on the machine, it starts, does what it is intended to do, in the manner it was intended to do it, and for as long as I need the asset to perform it. This is all done with an unequivocal knowledge that when the asset is required to return to service again, it shall perform its function without error or loss of production. Within the scope of “making profit”, manufacturing companies must create their products, in such a way that it is what the consumer desires. It is a process, a mindset, a journey that involves all levels of manufacturing to perform their intended functions in a reliable and best-in-class manner that leads to a higher return in manufacturing profits.
