What is Reliability Excellence® (Rx)?

Reliability Excellence (Rx) concepts and practices have evolved substantially over the past 30 years. Through the creation of the “Powered by Rx” unique methodology, LCE has been at the forefront of establishing Reliability Excellence as the preferred approach for companies seeking to transform themselves into high-performance organizations capable of sustaining operational excellence.

From a classical engineering approach, reliability is defined as the ability of a system or component to perform its required functions under stated conditions for specified period of time. To truly achieve excellence, however, a more holistic view is required. The traditional asset reliability achieved through Maintenance Excellence® must be expanded to include business and work process reliability and an empowered workforce of engaged employees. Effective leadership and a robust change management methodology support these three foundational concepts.
