If you measure reliability by department, electrical, mechanical, process control etc. You may each have a reliability of 97-99%, and everybody is very happy on their island. But if you add all departments together, you may get a very different picture. #maintenancemanagement #reliability #engineering #maintenance Measuring reliability by department is often misleading with regards to results, but it also often destroy the partnership between departments.
