Imagine: You run into one of the maintenance guys or a lubricator, what would you ask him? What will he tell you? Experience learns, that they will be most happy to tell you about their initiatives to reach above goals, but also the habits hindering their progress.


Snapshot Assessment TestImagine: you see desiccant breathers, filter carts, sample ports, drums, labeling, what conclusion will you draw? Can you draw a conclusion just because you see their presence?


Imagine: you ask the lubricator where he stores his oil, and he will show you the lube-room, the heart of reliability in the plant. You will see whether it is a well-designed lube room, and if it is located in a separate access-controlled, climate-controlled building. You will see if there are quality checks on viscosity and additives in the fluids. And what if you ask simple questions like: “Would you use these funnels, storage drums, jugs to change oil on your own car?” or “Would you store new oils for your car in conditions like this?”.
