What is DORA? – Dynamic Operational Reliability Analyser – the New Standard for Maintenance Plans

Business is becoming ever more competitive, and customers and shareholders are getting more and more demanding. Reducing inefficiency and maximising cost effectiveness through an intelligent continuous improvement methodology will give you the competitive advantage you need

DORA provides the methodology and the tool set to optimise availability and cost effectiveness within your organisation by focusing on your processes and not just your assets.

High, Medium and Low criticality production processes need a knowledge bank and different methods to develop and optimise their maintenance concepts and plans.

For high criticality processes, a thorough and proven methodology (such as RCM) is needed. For lower criticality processes, a quicker and simpler solution can realise benefits more rapidly and at lower cost.

DORA will enable you to continuously increase your knowledge of your processes and assets in order that maximum operational benefits and cost effectiveness are achieved.



  • DORA makes reliability, continuous improvement and optimising processes a way of life.
  • DORA will allow you to continuously increase and build knowledge of your processes and assets.
  • DORA has the flexibility to adjust to changing circumstances within your organisation (people, procedures, raw materials, operational matters, machines and cultures).
  • DORA is compatible with all RCM structures, guidelines, checklists, tips and tricks – you are not tied into one methodology.
  • DORA is JA1011/1012 compliant.
  • DORA results in improved Safety, Environmental Integrity, Product Quality, Reliability/Availability, Output, Efficiency, Asset Life and Cost Effectiveness.
  • DORA enables better Training, Teamwork, Ownership and Motivation of all individuals.
  • Multi staged approach is possible, depending on the need of the organisation, using:
    • QM – Quick Maintenance (for Low Criticality Processes)
    • ODM – Object Driven Maintenance (for Medium Criticality Processes)
    • Dynamic RCM – Dynamic Reliability Centred Maintenance (for High Criticality Processes)

Watch our video below to see how easy it is to use DORA. The video demonstrates and exlains Quick Maintenance (QM). QM is used for low criticality processes.
