LRS Consultants Global Network: Industrial Maintenance and Operations Consulting, Industrial Process Improvement Consultants, Operational Excellence Consultants



Dear Owners, CEOs, Executives and Managers,

Whether you want world class production, or simply more operating profits, partnering with experts who can do that for you most quickly is truly smart business.

Fundamentally, our job is to improve your engineering, operational and maintenance processes so your business runs brilliantly, well beyond what you thought was possible, and prove it to you within a year. You'll see lasting success within twelve months from less capital expenditure, lower maintenance costs, more saleable production, far more uptime and utilization, and a surge in operating profits that persist into the future.

You can get these new operating profits because we rapidly improve the robustness and reliability of your business processes. We make them move faster, for lower cost, error-proofed and anti-fragile. As your processes improve you get a permanent lift in your operating plant and equipment reliability and business productivity. This reliability growth across your business and in your production plant and equipment spins-off more operating profits within 12 months and forever after.

Your LRS partner focuses on making your business, capital projects, maintenance and operational processes work highly efficiently and effectively so they deliver you lasting world class production success. As your productivity, safety and quality improves you make savings from lower insurance premiums, reduced overdrafts, less salaries and wages, lower plant operating costs and equipment maintenance costs, and decreased warranty claims. They share and teach you and your people their proprietary world class knowledge and secrets for rapid, successful process improvement that gets outstanding productivity.

You get these massive benefits rapidly because your LRS Consultant makes them happen by using powerful analysis techniques to identify the best reliability creation opportunities and show your people how to drive plant and equipment reliability growth. The surge in production improvement and business process productivity you get pays for your consultant's expertise, specialist knowledge and proprietary solutions thousands, even tens of thousands, of times over. You make an astounding return on investment.

Partnering with your local LRS Consultant works because they show you how to design and build business-wide, life-cycle long, holistic reliability-creating processes that increase your production uptime and throughput. They work with you to create the simplest, least-cost 'system-of-reliability' that delivers world class maintenance, reliability and operational success from your existing business assets.


Reliability is most simply defined as 'the chance of success'. When your business is a 'system-of-reliability' it uses the best methods and practices that optimize your production performance. With a 'system-of-reliability' you use the optimal ways to make the most operating profit and engineer them into your business processes—literally, you build a business system designed for utmost production success. You'll create a stable system that operates across decades and throughout your company focusing everyone's efforts on world class productivity. This is the way you will achieve outstanding, lasting reliability and guarantee higher monthly operating profits from your company.

As a 'system-of-reliability' there are no limits on your company getting best practice maintenance and operation that delivers sure reliability and production success. Your day-to-day struggles disappear in just a few months when you use reliability creating processes that get you the highest uptime, record-breaking production performance and least maintenance costs. These results are the natural outcome when your company becomes a 'system-of-reliability'.

Use your LRS Consultant to change to a 'system-of-reliability', where lasting success comes from taking a company-wide, lifetime long, holistic view of your problems. They'll use life-cycle and system-wide solutions to fix the causes of your reliability, maintenance and operational problems; not point solutions that just address the symptoms. You'll get lasting, effective system-wide answers that continually improve your operational results year after year.


You can now partner with nearby experts and specialists who know how to solve your reliability, maintenance and operational problems. More than that, they know how to get you reliability, maintenance and operational excellence results. The LRS Consultant Network is built of world class engineers comprising a mix of design, reliability, maintenance and operations specialists. You get a world of professional and business expertise working on improving your company's performance. Because of their expertise and Network contacts they spend less time in your company than lesser capable people, and that means you get problems solved faster, and more reliable plant and equipment for less cost than using big consultancies.

By partnering with a LRS Consultant you bring into your company smart business people who think and act as smart business people do. They actively look for new ways to safely cut your costs, new ways to quickly improve productivity, new ways to safely save you money and make more profits. From them you only get smart answers for the outstanding production plant and equipment reliability and low maintenance costs you need for operational excellence results. Most importantly, you now have the right people to make your company become that good so it always generates world class performance and operating profits.

Here is an example of how your LRS Partner spots where to focus your efforts to make your operation most successful, most quickly, with a brilliant return on investment.

This powerful chance of Uptime analysis on your operation lets you quickly identify which operating processes need to be improved. Once you have the historic data it takes two to four hours to do this probability analysis. It's one of the most profitable morning's work your Partner can ever do for your company.

The downtime outage run chart and uptime frequency distribution curve cover ten years of operation in a real process plant (we've disguised the dates and company). The business is profitable, but losing a lot of extra operating profits that would be banked if they had high uptime (worth several million dollars a year to this company). See how using the frequency distribution curve turns the splatter of events in the run chart into a clear message about this company's chance of uptime success. The shape of the uptime frequency distribution curve tells you a lot about why this operation is suffering from high maintenance costs and poor availability.

Frequency Distribution of Uptime in an industrial operation

The clustering of results along a definable downward curve tells us there is a destructive process at work in this company. This company has an in-built outage-causing process, surely unintentionally introduced, that produces these poor Uptime results. The early failure peak is an indicator of poor business process quality control—there are lots of defects sitting in their business waiting for the chance to go wrong. The negative slope of the curve means their current designed and intended processes can never get them to the production performance they want, which is 60 days uninterrupted production Uptime between outages. That's happened only 5 times in ten years. Those 5 successes were all down to luck. You know that since the 60-day Uptime events are clearly unrepeatable, meaning those outcomes are random events. The only sure thing in this business is that Uptime has a very great chance of being less than 20 days, some chance of being up to 30 days, and almost no chance of being the 60 days the company wants.

The maintenance and operational processes they use can only deliver the current Uptime results you see in the plots. Remember, this is ten years of real production data—this performance is what they actually get from their business. Until they change to reliability creation processes that guarantee the success they want, their future operating performance and losses will be the same as the past.

If this was your company your LRS Partner would design and build business-wide, life-cycle long, holistic reliability creating processes that moved the production Uptime chance curve to a high certainty of getting 60 days. You would have the simplest, least-cost 'system-of-reliability' that gets the world class maintenance, reliability and operational excellence success you want from your business. With such change comes commensurate increased operating profits and new competitive successes. It would make you an astounding return on investment.

Selecting how to get the most success for you and your company, in the quickest way, for the least cost and effort is how your LRS Partner brings new and great fortunes to your business.

Your partner will organise and do everything that needs to be done to bring into your company the best strategies and practices to get outstanding reliability and least operating costs. They will change your processes to get the best solutions, methods and thinking into your business. It's where their expertise pays off hugely for you and your company. Partnering with experts is the proven, fast way to make your operation highly successful, get more uptime and lower operating costs. LRS Consultants are experts in the strategies and methods that most quickly increase operating profits.

Your LRS Consultant Partner is licensed by us. Their capability is vetted before we offer them a license to use our proprietary productivity solutions and best practice training. They work as single, expert consultants or micro businesses of world class specialists. They do not have the huge overheads of a big consultancy. The result is you are charged far less for their time, yet you get highly skilled expertise that knows how to get reliability, maintenance and operational excellence success.

Each LRS Consultant has access to everyone else in the LRS Global Network. An expert in electrical plant maintenance is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, (He is also an expert in industrial plant energy efficiency). An expert in downstream corrosion control is in Greer, South Caroline, USA. An expert in electronic component reliability lives in Guangdong, China. You will find a manufacturing plant maintenance specialist in Stockholm, Sweden; a process plant maintenance specialist in Perth, Western Australia (he's also expert in shutdown and maintenance planning and scheduling); and a ore mining maintenance specialist in Terenure, South Africa; as well as other industry specialists in a range of locations around the Globe. Your LRS Consultant will find the best solutions for your problems because they either will already know the answer, or know the best people to ask. While you're asleep in bed at night somewhere around the world your problems are being solved and your business is being improved.

You get another amazing benefit that no other consultancy model gives you. Your local LRS Consultant puts your company at their top-of-mind. Your business success is vital to their own success. It means your company comes first in their business lives. They are not like employees who work for you for a shift to get paid, but care little more about your business. Your LRS Consultant wants you to succeed and is ready to help you 24/7, year round, with a smile on their face.

When you want the utmost uptime, throughput and productivity at least operating and maintenance costs—get your local LRS expert in to build reliability-creating and maintenance excellence processes designed and run to give you the utmost uptime, throughput and productivity at least costs. Now you have a real answer to getting a successful industrial operation with world class maintenance, reliability and operational excellence. Outstanding plant uptime and equipment reliability is no longer a matter of chance and luck—your LRS Consultant will design and build a 'system-of-reliability' into your company so outstanding success is normal for you.

The exceptional Return on Investment (ROI) you receive comes from your business' new capability to:

  1. Measure the important factors that really drive successful reliability, maintenance and operational performance
