In the summer 2005, Jay Shellogg and I, Carlo Odoardi, met while working at Ivara in Burlington Ontario. I was working as a Reliability Consultant at Ivara Corporation at the time and had just finished my Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM2) Practitioner course. Jay on the other hand, was working as a Reliability Superintendent at Domtar in Ashdown AR, and he just finished his RCM2 Facilitator course with Mr. Peter Stock in the Aladon Network.

The Aladon® Network is a global community of reliability professionals whose members are certified by Aladon as Practitioners and Facilitators in the delivery of Reliability Centered Maintenance based equipment reliability methodologies. This global network has helped clients apply RCM2-based practices in over 80 countries.

We found ourselves really motivated, interested and excited about Aladon RCM2. All those amazing benefits and capabilities it held for industrial application! We could see the potential in using RCM2 for virtually any sector, anywhere in the world, personally and for business.

We went on to work together in a Vendor / Customer relationship, on an off for the next few years. We taught M&R to the Domtar plant personnel, we applied RCM2 to their asset systems, we used the Ivara EXP Enterprise CMMS/EAM software system to implement & manage all the work affairs at the plant. Our knowledge and experience grew as did our professional collaboration.

Fast forward 10 years or so of continually teaching and applying Maintenance & Reliability and Jay & I are now both Aladon Practitioners in the Aladon Risk & Reliability Global Network. Over the years, we were always in contact with each other. Regularly discussing new developments and ideas we found for RCM, RCD, RCFA, etc.

Eventually, we decided that the best way we could help others in the M&R field would be to create a social platform for like-minded professionals to share their M&R knowledge and experience. In particular, we want M&R newcomers to understand M&R principles even if they never learned about them before. We discuss everything to do with M&R from tips and tricks to problem-solving. You ask, we (the ‘Let’s Talk M&R’ social community) answer!

In ‘Let’s Talk M&R’, you are welcome to ask questions for help, network with others to collaborate on projects, share your Maintenance & Reliability experiences, & generally help others who wish to benefit from learning more about M&R. We have come up with a number of relevant discussion topics for the first few sessions. However, feel free to request new topics that we can set as the theme for the next set of sessions!

All we ask is that you please keep on topic, have open/honest intentions, be respectful and act professionally throughout the sessions.

We hope you find ‘Let’s Talk M&R’ to be of value to you. Please let us know how we are doing – we really want to provide an experience that is high-value in nature.
