Chronic Failure Analysis may be the Most Significant Process you can Run.

Well-known reliability professionals have stated that close to 80% of maintenance cost can be due to chronic failures. And because they are almost routine, their frequent occurrence impacts the bottom line.

Thus, organizations should focus on ways to attack the worst offenders and eliminate the cause. The figure shown below is the complete process which if performed correctly will help reduce reactive maintenance.




Possible Corrective Actions 

There are many possible actions that can result from reliability team reviews. It is not as simple as adding a new PM or conducting training. Lastly, it is possible that the reliability team may recommend multiple actions. But in the end, you can be assured that the chronic failure analysis process will reduce failures and optimize return on asset. In the figure below these are the different types of corrections. 



Take Control of your CMMS  

There are many improvement initiatives but chronic failure analysis may be at the top in terms of overall benefit. Having a reliability team which routinely relies on the CMMS to identify bad actors helps them focus on the worst offenders and improve the bottom line.
