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?

  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.
