Reliability & Maintenance (RAM)

Reliability & Maintenance

Stay ahead of your competition. Identify root causes of poor reliability & maintenance (RAM) performance and create guided action plans to close gaps and improve your RAM strategy, profitability, and culture.

Every manufacturing facility has unused assets being wasted due to inefficiency and unreliability, which is often perceived as a problem for the reliability department. However, reliability is one of the most overlooked opportunities that can positively impact three key components of any organization—customer loyalty, employee satisfaction, and profitability (especially through improved availability).

Becoming reliable is a journey; it does not just happen overnight. Reliability demands a proactive culture and maintenance strategy, rather than reactive. Attaining Q1 performance requires significant planning, effort, time, and buy-in from all staffing levels.

Through Solomon’s full-circle approach and expert industry experience, we can help you identify reliability and maintenance performance gaps and craft a tailored solution for closure and improvement. Our trusted RAM benchmarking methodology and library of best practices can help you understand performance drivers, set realistic targets, and create action plans to close gaps and improve performance. Let us help you maximize the impact of your efforts and put you on the path to achieve sustainable performance improvement.
