Improve the efficiency of your production organisation? Reliability Management is the solution.

Because "Maintenance" is the responsibility of everyone who influences failure behaviour.

Failure behaviour costs money, quality, downtime, returns. Companies that still maintain machines do not do enough for themselves. It can be “Better every day”.

ERC is a full-service consultancy company that focuses on professional maintenance. Everyone knows Asset Management. But does everyone know the limitations of it?

We train your staff and teach them how to deal with all the mechanisms behind failure behaviour. Your people have to maintain the failure behaviour of your processes. This cannot be outsourced, because >70% of all process failures are caused by “People”. And if maintenance is a technical trick, you keep turning in a circle that only affects 30% of your total return.

We are experts in various methods for creating maintenance concepts. Reliability-centred Maintenance (RCM), Object Driven Maintenance (ODM) and Quick Maintenance (QM) are three methods for creating maintenance concepts for high – medium and low critical systems. We provide certified trainers and facilitators. And optionally you can use our DORA software.

If you want to maintain your system better, let’s talk to you.

DORA is software to make maintenance plans for high-middle and low-critical systems. After a basic training of 3 days, your employees are already able to lay a foundation and improve existing maintenance plans and make new maintenance plans. DORA has been developed for companies that want to improve their maintenance. Maintenance and Reliability engineers continuously measure what the failure behaviour does and adjust their maintenance plans where necessary. This reduces costs and improves quality, safety, availability and reliability.

The software is available in 3 variants: Single User, Multi User and Enterprise.

The Software is used by the production companies to report malfunctions at the click of a mouse. Or DORA is linked to PLC data, which measures OEE and MPE. During the daily production meetings, live analyses and reports are shown. The software can also be used to record, measure and improve knowledge. Root Cause analysis, criticality analyses. DORA is a complete platform to improve your production yields.  Please contact us to discuss this without any obligation. It could well be the beginning of a growth scenario.
