Bits of information and touch of story

Nicely done, well produced show. Listend to the first episode and looking forward t the series. A susucint explaination of relaibility excellence for plant operation/maintenance, with a good list of topics to consider when working toward reliability excellence in your plant.

A bit of embedding advertising for LCE services, which is not unexpected. Hope the balance of useful content to veiled advertising remains high with content.

Cheers,

Fred
