change management consultancy Reliable Manufacturing, delivered a keynote
presentation as the events first international speaker. Held on the 2 nd 5 th November
2014 at Al-Jubail Industrial City, the conferences overarching theme of Commitment
to Reliability and Sustainability brought together SABIC manufacturing and technical
professionals from across the globe for expert discussion, stories of success and
cultural entertainment.
Frasers presentation highlighted the relationship between reliability and sustainable
business practice - and how to make it happen. Titled Using Reliability to unlock
sustainable business success, he addressed how and why reliability should be adopted within
a business context, as well as its relationship with safety
Many organisations overlook reliability and its relationship with safety, cost effi ciency and
business performance, explains Fraser. Reliability should receive a similar level of
executive attention as safety in manufacturing-based businesses. It plays a vital role in
increasing production output, product quality and yield, safety and environmental
performance, and customer satisfaction, as well as enabling sustainable cost reductions ; it
should be a core value in every organisation.
The presentation explained how to achieve substantial benefits through an organisationwide reliability strategy, drawing an enthusiastic response from fellow manufacturing
industry experts.
Andrews presentation was inspiring and extremely well received . He managed to get a
profound reaction from the audience on a key topic, and had a wonderfully engaging style.
