Look around you. There are so many opportunities to apply common sense reliability principles and gain many untapped benefits. Watch this 8 minute video showing a simple Maintenance Task Analysis (MTA) example then think about the possibilities in your plant. Interestingly, this example was ‘stumbled’ across during an RCM2 / MTA facilitator training session. You will see the value of getting Maintenance and Operations together to apply common sense strategies, in this case saving the company $11,000 annually. It’s a great learning tool, too. Just imagine what you could achieve coupling RCM on high risk assets along with MTA, starting with the ‘lowest hanging fruit’ in your plant.
