Reviews from World Class Maintenance Management - The 12 Disciplines

Rolly, your people-focus on reliability improvement and your commitment to helping people grow through improving their understanding of equipment and of themselves come through loud and clear in the book. The workplace stories you tell will resonate with people working in operations and maintenance in every industry. I very much like that you have provided practical answers with explanations and examples of how companies can move up the path to world-class maintenance performance. You have written about TPM, RCM and RCA with great passion and obvious depth of knowledge and experience. I’ve learnt much more about the right way to use those tools by reading your book than I ever understood before. There is no doubt that the World Class Maintenance Management - The 12 Disciplines book will become a well-thumbed reference book for me. Rolly, I’ve been fortunate to come across you and value your honest perspectives and insights on doing maintenance right. I share your desires for what maintenance can become and do for a company and hope that we can combine our efforts in the future. By Mike Sondalini, Reliability Consultant , Lifetime-Reliability, Australia

I hope you don’t mind if I use your life, of course the part you shared with us and the ones you wrote in the book, as an example to our AM (Autonomous Maintenance) teams to encourage them to look beyond what they are capable of doing at this moment in their lives and to inspire them to dream and grab every opportunity to learn and improve themselves. The book simplified the concepts of maintenance to aid practitioners like us. As I browse through the book I can see that this is not just a technical book about maintenance, but a book about your passion, your life. Congratulations! From Flordeliza V. Aldaya, TPM Chief Engineer, ST Micro-electronics – Calamba, Laguna, Philippines

I am already half-done reading your book and I find it very, very useful. I was shocked, from a welder/mechanic's point of view, the explanations in your book, especially the metaphors, has accomplished in making me understand more easily what it is you are trying to convey. It should be a Handbook for Maintenance personnel and of course, an eye-opener for the operations. Regards to Mang Tibo. Good day to you Sir, From Julius Fungo, CE Casecnan, Nueva Ecija, Philippines

Hi Mr. Rolly, Hopefully you still remember me. I am the one who give you my thesis during WCM - 12 Discipline courses @ Eastin Hotel, Malaysia. Here I want to review about the WCM Book. I already read the book twice.  It really fills me with hope for the maintenance role to be outstanding. The setting for this book was perfect. Every disciplines was made easy to grasp. It covers almost all dimensions of maintenance management. Without reservation, I heartily recommend this book. Thank you. From Khairul Haffiz Norddin, delegate from World Class Maintenance Training, Malaysia

Rolly’s book “World Class Maintenance Management” comprehensively explains the 12 Disciplines and thus provides a valuable reference for maintenance personnel. He has a dynamic vibrant personality, which he uses to presents the knowledge and wisdom condensed in his book in interesting and dynamic ways. He has a broad knowledge of the field of Maintenance and operator involvement in achieving greatest profitability from production plant. Rolly is an excellent experienced trainer in Reliability and Maintenance Best Practice." From Howard Witt, Maintenance Consultant from Australia

Reviews on Maintenance - Roadmap to Reliability

First I want to thank you Sir Rolly for giving me this very rare opportunity to comment in a book and have my comment in print. At first I was wondering where would this book leads me? Your quote “changing a system means changing a culture” captured my attention. So as I read, I already knew I need to finish reading this book. I can relate to most of what was illustrated, stated and example in this book. They’re all true and happening. A reality. I dreamed of having a kind of maintenance organization such as those described. My only worry is that I am not in the position to implement such. It is true that this kind of approach should be top to bottom, no support from upper management means you’ll end up to nothing. I am a maintenance guy and proud to be one. But it is great to know somebody that dedicates too much time and adhere to improve the lives of maintenance people like Rolly Angeles. From Darwin Abragante, Level 2 Thermographer , Analog Devices Gen. Trias, Inc.

This book is easy to read (take it from a guy who is a selective reader) and the flow of thought is smooth – relatable; to maintenance, production and quality people. The book provides general and specific inputs that should be considered in preparing a maintenance roadmap for an organization. The author, who is a maintenance guy, a facilitator and a trainer shares his vast experience in the actual maintenance task, implementation of maintenance strategy and analysis on maintenance management issues. This book has a good established link from the initial book that Rolly released. The way the book was written is just like having Rolly in front of you, explaining with passion the different topics about maintenance strategy – book well written. The TPM-PM implementation and TPM lessons shared by Rolly gives the reader of this book a glimpse – guidance on what needs to be done plus the pit-falls that need to be avoided. As each organization forms and develops its own maintenance culture, this book is a good reference to have. From Charles D. Mendoza, Sr. Quality Improvement Engineer/TQM/TPM, STMicroelectronics Inc.

Reviews on Reliability - A Shared Responsibility for Operators and Maintenance

I have attended two of Rolly’s public trainings. The first time was for MRO Spare Parts Management. It seems that I was transported to his world of World Class Maintenance. The second one was about Condition Based Maintenance. Though the stories and sidebars are the same as when I attended the first, I am still amazed at how he could relate all of his stories and connect them both to the roles of Operation and Maintenance in any industry. Being from the manufacturing industry for more than twenty five years and being employed by four companies, I have often seen issues and the disconnection between operations and maintenance, over and over again. The most common issue moving forward as heard from one quality expert which escapes my memory, and relating it with Operations and Maintenance, is that “we are managing the present with the tools of the past and thinking about the future with the mindset of the past.” Rolly’s book, provides a wealth of wisdom and actual years of experience on the roles of operations and maintenance. This is mostly recommended to leadership as this book shall serve as a guide and a template on how to move towards Reliability. The stories will definitely change our mindset and paradigm on the dealings and transactions of operation and maintenance. The tools mentioned in the book shall guide us to the future with our ultimate goal of improving reliability. Be it Japanese (TPM) or Western (RCM) style of maintenance model, the common denominator is the partnership between operators and maintenance. A must have book for industry’s leadership or better yet, attend Rolly’s trainings. Congratulations, Mr. Rolly “Stones” Angeles! From Rodel T. Domingo, Corporate Engineering and Maintenance Manager at Multiflex RNC Philippines, Inc. (URATEX).

Reliability – A Shared Responsibility for Operators and Maintenance is a powerful book that provides a significant fact of Operators and Maintenance relationship and how these two functions evolve into a team that works together to greatly improve the Reliability of the Plant. A masterpiece by Mr. Rolly that would be a vehicle for cost efficient operation in any Manufacturing Plants or industries. This book also includes a powerful tool to aid us in implementing Autonomous Maintenance, Planned Maintenance, Reliability-Centered Maintenance, Root Cause Failure Analysis and FMEA/FMECA. Thank you very much Mr. Rolly for making our lives (Operators and Maintenance) more effective and efficient especially for me as a Mechanical Maintenance Head, this book will shape not only me but my team into a World Class Maintenance. From Marion Fajardo Gomez, Mechanical Maintenance Supervisor, Therma South Inc., Philippines

Congratulations Mr. Rolly for writing this book. First, I would like to thank you for accepting me as part of the review team. I was very happy since I only heard of World Class Maintenance from my bosses and only few representative were allowed to attend your training. I only heard the echoed training which is quite hard to understand. I appreciate your choice of simple language in writing this book for easily grasping your point. Reliability - A Shared Responsibility for Operators and Maintenance is an enlightenment for industry putting maintenance dilemma into words. The truth is, it is overwhelming that reliability should be a priority which is not I used to hear from my 10 years of my industry experience as a maintenance, but you explain it with examples that is easily understood. Operators and maintenance working together will take a long journey of change. This change is hard to implement with the old mindset of operator and maintenance especially in my plant where operators are just high school graduates but with the current industry trend, hiring technical graduate operator or at least college level, I perceive is doable. I hope and pray people will read this book especially Top Management, so the operations will finally adapt this change. From Janice Dacles Casas, Former maintenance at Cebu Mitsumi Philippines and Fairchild Semiconductor, Cebu Philippines

This book contains significant and relevant theory and idealism. I never read this kind of books before but it hits the core value of TPM. It is indeed maintenance quite necessary in any kind of manufacturing companies. I salute for all technicalities which I don’t know it comes from before, I have learned a lot from this book. As a technical personnel I can say that it’s very much informative and vibrant. It makes a lot of sense in dealing with the alternative way on maintenance. All throughout, I was amazed by the author’s knowledge’s. Proud being a Filipino. Thank you for sharing this kind of book with us the author is really a mastermind on this TPM world. I absolute enjoyed reading it even though I’m not really a reading enthusiast. I miss the Rolling Stone part which you gave the color on this book. Kudos Mr. Rolly Angeles for the good job. I now truly understand and felt being one of the maintenance team. This book has a heart and is very lively. I hope you continue to spread the meaningful story of the maintenance people. We owe you all the knowledge and being a part of this team review. Congratulations Mr. Rolly this is a heck of success. Thank you. From Wilma S. Magbujos, Process Technician, Transitions Optical Phil's Inc., Philippines
