The Reliability of Everything™ Culture Improvement Awards Submission Form

  • Designated contact person (leave blank if contact is person listed above)

Items to include in your final submission:

    1. Completed key performance indicator (KPI) spreadsheet (standardized data sheet will be provided upon submission of this application)
    1. Trend charts/bar charts/analytics showing improvements (measureable results in reliability, maintainability, operations, and culture/employee engagement), especially how they are related.
    1. Outline of the steps taken (start of journey, where you are to date, and future steps planned)
    1. Summary of the lessons learned, biggest challenges, and related key decisions made and outcomes
    1. Keep in mind that, overall, the awards will be based on three criteria:
      • Measured improvement in R&M metrics (25%)
      • Measured improvement in culture and impact on R&M/operations (50%)
      • Documented journey/process used with lessons learned (25%)
  1. Any other supporting information/data.

(Data submitted will only be used for judging. Your company will decide the level of data used in a MARCON presentation, possible Efficient Plant magazine article, and elsewhere.)

Final important note:

The Culture Improvement Awards are about making measureable progress, regardless of the quartile where your company started, or where it is now. It’s just as significant, and often more difficult, to go from the 4th to 3rd quartile, than to go from the 2nd to 1st (top) quartile. In short, these awards are a way to recognize people from real-world plant environments who have worked hard to make a difference in improving culture and operations. Being able to share details of your company’s journey—what worked and, just as important, what didn’t and why—can be of great value to all plant professionals.

Award submissions must be received by October 31, 2021.

If you have questions or need additional support, contact Klaus Blache at kblache@utk.edu or call: 875-974-9628.

  • Data harvesting

    Snap Signal reportedly captures data from nearly any industrial machine’s device and converts it to a common protocol, enabling an upgrade to Industry 4.0. The products can be used to build a brand-agnostic IIoT platform composed of modular hardware and software. The system is said to capture and convert machine signals and protocols, such as […]

  • HMI touch panel

    The HG2J series 7-in. touchscreen HMI uses projected capacitive touch panel (PCAP) technology to save space and reportedly improve performance. PCAP glass requires fewer layers than traditional analog resistive plastic films, and the self-capacitance technology is said to also prevent accidental input due to water droplets. More resistant to scratches, the material won’t turn yellow […]

  • Featured Product: Liquiphant From Endress + Hauser

    Vibronic instruments are widely used in the process industries. Available from multiple manufacturers, millions of these devices have been installed worldwide over the past few decades. While the basic technology of vibronic instruments hasn’t changed much over the years, today’s instruments now employ technological innovations to bring them into the digital age. Find out how […]

  • Device-Management Software

    The company’s device-management software is fully registered by FieldComm Group to support the Field Device Integration (FDI) standard. FDI registration will reduce the need for plants to support two different technologies to integrate and maintain field devices. Full FDI registration avoids the need for a patchwork of systems and devices that only support individual elements […]
