Courage for Reliability

Courage for Reliability

Do you have the courage to push for reliability in your plant?

I was just reading a story about Charles J. Latino, the Father of Manufacturing Reliability.  As you know, I am inspired by a good personal story, especially one about a hard-worker who inspires others.  I thought I would share this story with you because I think we all have a story about taking risks and resisting limitations.  If you don’t, it’s just around the corner.

Reliability is a very important issue for our plant managers today.  Many times their responsibilities are not well-defined and it may seem like the risky option. However, I have heard many success stories like that of  Mr. Latino. I believe if you take the initiative to create a more productive workplace, you will see the reward.

Who’s responsibility is it to increase productivity?

Do you have the courage to take on that responsibility?

One response to “Courage for Reliability”

  1. […] The character faced many challenges trying to change the culture.  As I listened to the opposition from his team as he tried to implement a reliability program, I realized shutting down part of a plant to fix an equipment failure was a lot bigger than the YouTube installation videos make it seem.  I was deep in thought about how brave he must have been.  That is why I titled my last post about the father of reliability, Courage for Reliability.
