Program Failure
A Direct Correlation

FAQ about RAM-GPS Assessments

Is this really at no cost?

Yes – ReliabilityWeb.com and Asset Analytix have sponsored a one-site/one-time full-scale assessment at no cost.

What is the difference between the sponsored and subscription assessment?
  • The subscription assessment will offer an unrestricted use of the tool as well as reporting and analytics. The sponsored version will not allow you to re-assess, limits one assessment per company and limits scoring/benchmarking analytics.
  • The questions, ranking, objectives, KPI’s are the EXACT same as the subscription version which means that this is a REAL assessment and should be approached accordingly. Sponsored does not mean casual.
How do we sign up for the sponsored assessment?

It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

How long does the RAM-GPS assessment take?
  • On average the entire assessment takes approx. 2-4 hours. Because the assessment is divided by owner (by element in the subscription version) the time can be distributed by each person/team.
  • We recommend bringing relevant participants into a meeting and going through each of the essential questions to gain agreement, opinions and to create the valuable conversations.
Can I compare our multiple sites or against others?
  • The subscription version offers a full benchmarking capability where you can see your progress at each re-assessment as well as see all of the sites within your organization as well as anonymous comparison against industries around the world.
  • You can also see where you rank within your peers and demographics (IE: “How am I doing vs others in the Pharmaceutical or Petro Chemical space”?
