Case Study: Designing for Reliability

Ron Moore | Contributing Host, RELIABILITY CONNECT

In this session, we’ll review practical principles of designing for reliability, which requires applying life cycle cost and/or total cost of ownership principles, and for large projects, integrating a veteran operating and maintenance team into the project.  Key questions to ask during project development will be reviewed as well.  The case study will discuss how one company designed and build one major operating plant, which had numerous problems, delays, and cost overruns before achieving adequate performance, compared to a second, similar plant, but applying principles related to building reliability into the design, and achieving far superior performance.  Other minor case studies will also be discussed.

We hope you enjoy this episode!
