- Manage the equipment hierarchy and equipment criticality databases. Equipment hierarchy and criticality is the foundation of all reliability improvement strategies. The level of completeness and accuracy of these databases are essential in order to build appropriate maintenance strategies and target reliability improvement tools to the appropriate systems where the greatest benefit will be realized. This hierarchy also includes all necessary component information that will enable failure mode analysis. Maintaining an effective criticality database insures that the relative importance of each piece of equipment is understood so that strategies can be determined and work can be prioritized for the most effective use of resources.

- Ensure that all plant equipment has an equipment maintenance plan that matches the expected failure modes. The Reliability Analyst crafts a strategy of both preventive and condition monitoring tasks that are specifically designed to identify or prevent failure modes. By using collected information about the equipment, failure modes are identified and the appropriate tasks are selected to identify or prevent these failures. The strategy is implemented according to the criticality database. Methodologies to determine the failure modes of equipment include Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) and Root Cause Analysis (RCA).

- Develop and manage the condition monitoring and predictive maintenance program. As the owner of the failure mode based strategy, the Reliability Specialist develops and implements the predictive maintenance and condition monitoring program, often referred to as PdM. This requires the Specialist to determine what technologies will be deployed to which equipment based on an understanding of the capabilities of the PdM technologies to address failure modes. The strategy must include the tracking of key indicators such as equipment condition, route adherence, mean time between failures and defect elimination.

- Perform statistical analysis on equipment failures to determine changes to the equipment maintenance plan. Understand what types of failures are most common through analysis of the data from the job reporting system enables the reliability specialist to make adjustments to the existing equipment maintenance plan.
