Noria Corporation has created a free humorous poster for industrial maintenance and reliability professionals. "Nine Goals of the Industrial Reliability Engineer" is the title of the piece, which includes nine digitally enhanced photos representing each of the goals.
The nine goals are:
- Optimize asset maintenance plans
- Forecast effects of failure
- Reduce run-in failures
- Perform corrective actions
- Manage spare parts
- Monitor asset health
- Conquer poor workmanship
- Support design for reliability
- Perform root cause analysis
To download the free poster (in an Adobe Acrobat PDF file), go to www.reliabilityworld.com/poster/. Registration is required. From this location you may download and print the poster in full color or black and white on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper.
A full-sized (12x17 in.), full-color version of the poster also can be ordered for $6 through the website. The $6 covers the cost of printing and shipping via UPS (United States only).
At the bottom of the download is information about Reliability World 2005 and Lubrication Excellence 2005, both of which will be held April 26-28, 2005, in San Antonio, Texas.
