A common cause for many M&R functions within organizations failing to achieve their objectives, witnessed across literally every industry vertical, is a lack of emphasis on the mindsets and matching behaviors required of employees to produce a reliable asset base.

Correct mindsets help employees view what they see daily within the framework of a set of guiding principles that in turn allow them to employ the technical tools in their toolbox correctly. Proper deployment of these tools and processes results in the achievement of key goals: increased throughput, lower unit costs, and improved first-pass yield rates.
