Operational risks: How to reduce losses in production operations
The key objective of a business is to generate profit for its shareholders and, as a general rule, to increase capital in the long run. Here, the number of probable and possible losses in a value chain becomes greater with larger businesses and with equipment that remains in operation for longer periods of time. One of the key questions arising at top management level in companies is where to invest resources: in performance improvement or in reliability enhancement?
