Recommended Reading List for Reliability Newbie

I got an email request and I thought the reply might be useful for some AMP members.

Question: If you had a new young business analyst starting at Reliabilityweb.com who had no knowledge of Asset Management or Reliability best practices, what would you have them read for self-paced best practices development?

 

Nothing War and Peace like, but a primer if you will...

 

 

Answer:
Tough question but here is my attempt at reply:

 

#1 - Don't Just Fix It, Improve It!
