Good Practice Guide: Equipment Reliability

ISPE announced the release of its latest Guide, ISPE Good Practice Guide: Equipment Reliability. This Guide offers best practices with respect to equipment reliability, addresses specific opportunities for the pharmaceutical industry beyond the general reliability of equipment, and can serve as the basis for an effective reliability program.

As innovation extends to and transforms the supply chain, equipment lifecycle costs and availability become ever more relevant to maintaining a competitive advantage. The strategy and tactics of reliability can help companies maintain the value of their equipment throughout its useful life and mission and the application of asset management principles can help companies leverage equipment towards a competitive advantage.

Guide Team Lead

This Guide was written and reviewed by a group of experts in the field, making it a must-have reference for systematically and proactively improving reliability at all stages of the equipment lifecycle from design to decommissioning. The concepts in this Guide apply to physical assets, facilities, utilities, and equipment that support production, materials management, packaging and labeling, and laboratory operations.
