The Reliability Story

For over 50 years, we’ve helped thousands of teams and organizations do Root Cause Analysis (RCAs) with excellence.


 In 1967, our founder Charles J. Latino built the first Reliability Department in the country at Allied Chemical.  Since then, his desire to spread his Reliability concepts has reverberated around the world.



Charles’ group resolved a debilitating operational issue threatening thousands of jobs, leading to the formation of the formal R&D Reliability Engineering group.

“Metallurgists know how to 'listen' to materials to know why they failed.  But a damaged part is just part of the story. PROACT® is invaluable in helping me uncover all root causes.”
