Reliability Excellence For Managers

Category: Aci Code Requirements And Specifications For Concrete Design, Construction And Repair Training

Course Description

The Reliability Excellence model is a flexible, scalable framework that has been adopted by dozens of Fortune 500 organizations as their framework for reliability and asset management.

Reliability Excellence for Managers (RxM) is the original reliability program designed to build competency through multiple classroom learning sessions and practical application over a year. Each year the content is updated to include our findings from new research, assessments, and application. In the past decade over 600 people, from nearly 200 organizations, have enrolled in the program. You will learn how to customize and apply the tools and processes required to develop, implement and sustain world-class, reliability-based performance and a culture of continuous improvement.

Program facilitators are certified reliability professionals with decades of experience implementing reliability. The program is designed and maintained by a team of respected thought leaders and authors in maintenance and reliability, including Keith Mobley, and Tim Kister.

RxM is delivered in four, three-day sessions with a six to eight week interval between sessions. After each session, you are encouraged to apply what you have learned to reinforce learning and raise retention. When you return for the following session, you will share your experiences, thereby gaining a deep understanding and ability to sustain your new learning.

Over the four-part program, you will build a business case for Reliability Excellence. You will learn how leadership and culture impact a change initiative, and how to become a change agent to help keep your organization reliable, agile and competitive. You will become aware of the business processes associated with world-class performance. Finally, you will build a plan to strengthen and stabilize the charge for reliability
