Exploring the tree of unreliability and what drives downtime

An infinite number of causes can lead to lost production and unplanned downtime. But some have common physical roots and underlying latent roots related to our reliability issues. Presenter Shon Isenhour, founding partner of Eruditio, has reviewed or participated in thousands of root cause analyses. In this webinar, he discusses cases with more obvious roots at the surface, as well as the more neglected, and often completely missed, organizational troubles that can haunt reliability efforts. He pulls real examples to give attendees some areas to focus on and organizational issues to be aware of as part of their reliability journey.
