Abstract You don’t need to invest in new assets if you can get more from existing assets. Mining companies today need to deliver their products in a reliable manner, within shrinking budgets and with fewer resources. The less expensive and more sustainable approach to a more profitable operation is to ensure optimal performance and reliability of existing assets.

This paper will introduce a current advancement in reliability and maintenance practices and technology that can enable organizations to move to a proactive, condition-based maintenance approach. The benefits of reliability are strategic and include increased revenue and output, cost efficiencies, improved customer satisfaction and safety and environmental integrity.
Keywords: operational excellence, reliability strategy, asset performance management, Equipment reliability, fixed and mobile equipment management
