What Our Clients Say…

Daryl Mather

The Latino brothers have been trail blazers in Root Cause Analysis for as long as I have known them. They have been particularly visionary in pioneering the inclusion of Human Factors into this field, via the PROACT methodology, over the past decade and a half. As always, their vision has been right on target!

Alan Laundry

A technique that allowed us to fix a chronic processing problem that plagued one of our gas plants for more than ten years. If not for this technique, we would still be “fire fighting” this problem today.

“Mark, It was an absolute pleasure to see you deliver the BFA course yesterday.

The manner in which you made the topics come to life with your experiences and knowledge was great to behold. You continuously connected with the audience and had them engaged for the entire day! (Which is a bit tough to do especially after lunch). Your wealth of experience and knowledge throughout the day really helped in bringing the participants to the understanding of the PROACT methodology and the concepts that were covered in the BFA. “

“I had the pleasure of working with the extremely knowledgeable and talented Reliability Center Inc. (RCI) staff while using their PROACT methodology to successfully identify the root causes of several significant equipment failures. The techniques utilized to analyze the events resulted in generating excellent  reports that were thorough and understandable.

Every company would benefit from utilizing RCI and their methodologies.”

“I had the opportunity to attend the Reliability Center’s (PROACT) Lead Investigator course in 2012 when we used “super users” to perform RCA’s on high impact incidents. One of the things I most enjoyed about that course was the time spent on the investigative process and the formality of evaluation of evidence based on facts in evidence. While that sounds a tad like a criminal investigation, the course is really about instilling the formal processes necessary for exploration and understanding. To your ‘wheelhouse’ we had a wonderful three days where we did nothing but evaluate and hypothesize the failure mechanisms for an array of mechanical components, shafts and bearings. From the perspective of understanding failure to institute system resilience, I can’t honestly say enough good things about the course. I also don’t think we’d find a more experienced team in performing these analyses than exists with the Latino family whose father started the business long before it was a fashionable practice. From my reading and experience, I would put Mr. Latino on par with Dr. Deming, Joseph Juran and others who pioneered the quality movement. Simply stated, whatever platform is used to collate and present the findings will only be as beneficial to our cause as the preparedness of the investigative team.”
