If you have attempted to develop a detailed maintenance strategy you will be familiar with Failure Modes, Effects (and Criticality) Analysis [FMEA/FMECA] and Reliability Centered Maintenance [RCM].  If the world would stop for 18 months we would all have time to perform such detailed analysis on every asset to understand all the failure modes, the consequences, and thus have the perfect maintenance strategy. But most of us don't have time for such detailed analysis.  

Instead, we need a way to prioritize and justify our efforts. The Asset Criticality Ranking is a great tool, but so many people have tried and failed to use ACR effectively, and many have found that the ACR was too superficial (and did not cope with a great many real-world situations) to provide the detail necessary. 

In this Webinar, Jason Tranter, the founder of Mobius Institute, will use one of Mobius' most popular training simulators to explain how the asset criticality ranking can be developed to quickly, and effectively, identify the most critical assets, but then go much further to dig deeper and deeper, considering risks/probability related to the identified consequences of failure, and to consider individual components.  

This approach has been described as a "criticality spectrum"; with very basic system criticality at one end, and detailed FMEA at the other end. It is believed that this approach will provide you with the detail that you need in the shortest time possible.


  1. How to establish the asset criticality ranking
  2. Why the detail available through RCM/FMEA is ultimately valuable
  3. A streamlined approach that utilizes ACR techniques to provide detail when the criticality indicates it is warranted
