About Us - AU
Who We Are
We believe in practical, common sense solutions to reliability and maintenance management improvements. Our Results Oriented Reliability and Maintenance (RORM) philosophy is based on prioritizing actions based on cost (including time) vs. actual results. Our philosophy has used the same core principles of reliability and maintenance work systems while we have embraced new technology to accelerate those core principles. The core principles of planning, scheduling, preventive maintenance, root cause, and spare parts management are still true today, while technology has helped speed up execution (for the most part).
Our people are exceptionally experienced in reliability and maintenance work processes and change management. Our people have experience from Oil and gas, pulp and paper, chemicals, mining, food, pharmaceutical, steel, and cement. Most of our people have experience as planners, supervisors, maintenance managers and corporate reliability, some of our people have a maintenance experience combined with mill management and/or CEO's.
