Failure is not an option: How a five-phase process can dramatically reduce breakdowns and increases uptime

Led by industry expert Preston Ingalls, this webinar will show participants how to reduce equipment breakdowns with a proven process called a P-F model. Used by NASA, the aviation industry and others to minimize breakdowns, it has produced amazing results. It has two separate stages that are related but different: detection and mitigation. Ingalls demonstrates its effectiveness with examples from two case studies of companies that reduced their emergency or breakdown rate from 65 percent and 35 percent to a current level of an outstanding 1 percent. Remarkable and achievable.
