Reliability Roadmap

Purpose

The Reliability Roadmap is a Technical Aid developed to support and enhance the course work associated with Process and Equipment Reliability Methods. Equivalent to the flowcharts presented in the Quality Improvement Strategy publication, this document contains a series of flowcharts intended to allow the trained practitioner to take advantage of the "hidden factory" that may exist in their current facility. Key sections provided allow the reader to understand and deploy the methods required to select appropriate reliability improvement tools, improve equipment purchasing procedures, specify new equipment or machinery, and writing improved reliability specifications.
