What Our Clients Say...

Sanya Mathura

“Mark, It was an absolute pleasure to see you deliver the BFA course yesterday.

The manner in which you made the topics come to life with your experiences and knowledge was great to behold. You continuously connected with the audience and had them engaged for the entire day! (Which is a bit tough to do especially after lunch). Your wealth of experience and knowledge throughout the day really helped in bringing the participants to the understanding of the PROACT methodology and the concepts that were covered in the BFA. “

“ I’ve used the PROACT method for RCA many times and it has always surfaced issues with leadership decisions and omissions related to guidance (policies, processes and procedures) and resources.”

The PROACT® Logic Tree, is one of the best methods we use. We are proud that all SABIC sites and corporates are unified in terms of analyzing the major incidents by using PROACT® Logic Tree methodology since our aim and target is always to reach to the latent root cause(s) that failed to protect our assets from any false human interaction.

“I had the opportunity to attend the Reliability Center’s (PROACT) Lead Investigator course in 2012 when we used “super users” to perform RCA’s on high impact incidents. One of the things I most enjoyed about that course was the time spent on the investigative process and the formality of evaluation of evidence based on facts in evidence. While that sounds a tad like a criminal investigation, the course is really about instilling the formal processes necessary for exploration and understanding. To your ‘wheelhouse’ we had a wonderful three days where we did nothing but evaluate and hypothesize the failure mechanisms for an array of mechanical components, shafts and bearings. From the perspective of understanding failure to institute system resilience, I can’t honestly say enough good things about the course. I also don’t think we’d find a more experienced team in performing these analyses than exists with the Latino family whose father started the business long before it was a fashionable practice. From my reading and experience, I would put Mr. Latino on par with Dr. Deming, Joseph Juran and others who pioneered the quality movement. Simply stated, whatever platform is used to collate and present the findings will only be as beneficial to our cause as the preparedness of the investigative team.”

“I have had the opportunity of using various methods such as 5-Why’s, Fishbone, Apollo, FMEA, and PROACT. I feel PROACT meets my expectations. The PROACT methodology uses rigorous fact based data followed by a verification process to determine the physical, human & latent root-causes that led to the failure(s). It can be used by people on the floor as well as any engineer that wishes to use the methodology.

We are very pleased with the results, as a matter of fact; Reliability Center Inc. (RCI) was a significant contributor as we closed out our fiscal year around $17,000,000 below budget.
