DEFEND YOUR ASSETS
A rallying cry for Asset Reliability!
Assets are under attack daily from natural and forced deterioration, both of which seek to destroy them. To ensure that our assets can continue to perform their functions and deliver years of reliable service, we must defend them against these attacks.
Just as a military fortress is built as a stronghold to defend an army from invading forces, so too a reliability program is built to defend its assets from damaging deterioration and functional failure. Let’s call it our “Reliability Fortress."
A fortress is designed to incorporate several attributes to protect the assets within its walls. Similarly, a Reliability Fortress encompasses many of the same attributes as the real thing.
Our assets, and the teams that operate and maintain them, are in a daily fight for survival; we need to build defenses that ensure their successful daily performance and long-term reliability.
Constructing our Reliability Fortress will give us the Vision, Defenses, Robustness, Provisions, and Skills to fend off any attacks that come to do us harm.
