Welcome to our simple assessment worksheet. In the spreadsheet below you can answer with “x” for your selection in the light green boxes below. All questions are multiple-choice and please select only one answer. A few brief definitions and explanations are included in the blue shaded areas. Note: none of your details nor selected answers are stored by Conscious Asset.
If you select more than one response, you will see a warning notification to the right of the answer boxes.
If you do not change your response (by choosing a blank in the drop-down for the green cell), then the highest of the scores corresponding to your selections will be used.
The spreadsheet was designed to fit within your screen width on a laptop or desktop computer. Use the scroll bars to move up, down, and sideways as needed.
The result is shown in a grid at the bottom of the worksheet (you will need to scroll down to see it). To interpret your results, see the brief explanations below the results plot (scroll further down). We would be delighted to discuss your results with you. For more detail, you can read our blog articles on “Maintenance and Reliability Maturity” (Part 1 and Part 2), or you can contact us to discuss.
Other sources of useful information are our books, “Basic Reliability Management“, and “Uptime – Strategies for Excellence in Maintenance Management”
Maintenance and Reliability Maturity Self-Assessment
Your answers (x) go into the green boxes on the right.
After completing the self-assessment you can download the Excel file to your computer using the download link directly above.
If your results are not quite what you expected, then you may wish to check on your answers to the questions in the self-assessment. Make sure you are answering the questions using the definitions provided in the blue boxes. Over- or under-estimating what your organization is really doing can produce surprising and inaccurate results.
Once you have seen what your organization’s level of maturity is, you may want to consider using our Business Case Estimator to get a sense of what improvements in those areas would be worth – you will probably be surprised at the results. This article (click here) describes the estimator. The estimator does not attempt to consider costs, those are far too variable from organization to organization. In our experience, however, the costs are usually far less than the benefits.
After using the Estimator you may want help in understanding your results, how we determined the business case, or even what approximate costs to make improvements might be. We are available for consultation: Business Case Estimator and Consultation.
