Your Equipment Reliability Solution: A TapRooT® TV Video Premiere

Does your equipment reliability program have a missing piece?

Do you wonder why your equipment is unreliable, and in need of constant repair or replacement? Do you struggle to find an equipment reliability solution?

Perhaps diagnostic methods look like this:

  • Replacing parts or entire units (trial and error)
  • Guessing at answers using the previous experience of a similar situation
  • Guessing at answers based on the advice of others (perhaps vendors)
  • Using substandard techniques like 5-Whys

Oh, no – not AGAIN!

The methods above are ineffective. They will simply fix the equipment and get it running again — only to have the same issue repeat soon afterward. It’s a vicious, costly, aggravating cycle. Our mission includes creating better problem solving solutions, and we discovered that many companies suffer similar challenges:

  1. Companies cannot afford repeat equipment failures
  2. Better data is needed to analyze generic causes of equipment reliability issues
  3. Preventive maintenance/predictive maintenance programs based on equipment failure data need further development
  4. Mechanics in the field need better troubleshooting skills

Tribal Knowledge. Who Knows How To Troubleshoot Old Equipment?  Chances are, there’s someone who can’t tell you but can show you how it’s always been done ever since way back when. Information locked away in a mind vault won’t help when that person leaves the company. Tribal knowledge is a thing of the past, and it should stay there. Here’s why:
