Stop Repeat Equipment Failures

One of the biggest equipment reliability issues is wasting time fixing equipment failures more than one time.

We’ve all seen it. A piece of equipment fails, the mechanics jump on the failure and replace some parts and days to weeks later, the same equipment fails again for seemingly the same reason.

I’ve seen this happen two, three, and even four times in a row.

I’ve seen a pump fail on an offshore oil production platform every month or two and nobody did anything for years except sending it off to be repaired.

I’ve seen an investigation by the CSB that had over 15 repeat equipment failures and the next failure was part of a serious accident. Imagine 15 chances to prevent a major accident but nobody did anything to prevent it.
