Proactive Reliability

Transformational Performance Solutions, LLC are experts in maintenance and reliability management, using Proactive reliability strategies for preserving the reliability of machines or equipment. The reason for proactive reliability is to view machine failure and similar problems as something that can be foreseen and taken care of before they occur.

It is a universal truth that it costs 10% of the failures costs to be proactive and stop it from happening. Another way to look at this is to gauge the internal rate of return when comparing reducing your reliability costs over increasing sales. A 10% strategic reduction in reliability costs in a plant creates a bottom-line effect equal to a 40% increase in sales. Which is easier, increasing sales 40% or reducing reliability costs through proactive efforts by 10%?

Reliability Engineering at Its Best

Reliability Engineering is a sub-discipline of systems engineering that emphasizes dependability in the lifecycle management of a product.

The three main reasons (forced deterioration) a part fails prematurely, in infant mortality, is:

Our goal is to work alongside your team to reduce and eliminate these main reasons for infant mortality (first phase) through continuous and proactive improvement.

Lubrication Programs

Many organizations do not realize that there are significant differences in the various types of lubricants available in the market. If you are using a lubricant with a gas company’s name on it, you are using an inferior product.

Another common mistake made in reliability is allowing your lubricant provider to manage your lubrication program. This is a fatal mistake, as their interest is in selling lubricants to you, specifically those lubricants that make them the most money.
