Reliability Engineering

Reliability is about trust. Trust that a certain piece of equipment or process will:

  • Perform as intended.
  • Work under the expected operating conditions.
  • Last for an predictable amount of time.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. (Benjamin Franklin)

Reliability in Design, Maintenance, Operation = Increase Profit

Example #1 - When we enter our car, we trust that it will keep us safe, keep us comfortable and keep us from getting stranded in the middle of nowhere. When trusted equipment work in a reliably manner, life is easier.

Example #2 - Airlines try to keep the planes as full as possible and operate their aircrafts day & night. Schedules and safety records are more predictable when regular maintenance and good record become ingrained into the process.

Reliability is about maximizing the use of an asset while minimizing idle-time, down-time & deterioration. For every minute it's not in SAFE use, is another minute of lost revenue.

At ICS Engineering Inc. we have a group of experienced engineers, statisticians, technicians and even accountants whose goals are the same as yours - improve quality in product & process, increase profitability, reduce unnecessary costs while upholding all safety, industry & environmental regulations.

We do that by:

  • Verifying the business objectives - Clients & shareholders must set realistic targets.
  • Verifying the design - Using the right system in the right place at the right time makes life a lot easier.
  • Verify the Operation - Use the equipment as it was intended to be used.
  • Verify the maintenance - Regularly scheduled maintenance results is longer life.
