Allow me to say thank you for your unselfish contribution to mankind. These people are not my competitors, they are simply my friends.






Dave Thompson is a reliability consultant based from UK, and one of my first clients to purchase some materials on RCFA for references. Since then, Dave and I have been communicating.  Dave also was responsible for  recommending me for some work in Nigeria and introducing me to Mr. Nnebocha.


Dave’s Message:


I haven't had the pleasure to meet Rolly personally to date, but we have corresponded with each other during early 2007.  Due to my work load I recommended Rolly for an RCM project that I could not fulfill.  The client was extremely satisfied with him and hopefully there will be more work from that source.


Emmanuel Nnebocha is the Managing Director of Hermann and Cross Ltd. which is located in Nigeria that provides Asset Maintenance Management as well as  Consultation and Risk Analysis Assessment with their clients.  Should you be interested in their services, you can reach him through his website at www.hermanncross.com

I wish to thank Rolly for taking up the challenge to make the trip to Nigeria He took up this challenge mainly out of his interest to spread the Classical RCM gospel.

I happened to meet Rolly when I was looking for more information about TPM and RCM. As a TPM/RCM trainer myself in Belgium, Germany and Holland I am really impressed by the outstanding information he gave me personally about these two items. I am convinced Rolly is also an excellent trainer and is the right person to give advice on both these items. I hope he will be contacted more and more in the future by people starting with their TPM/RCM.

It is a continues process though he professes yet he has answers even for the future uncalled for mystery in Maintenance.

Vee’s Message:


As a well experienced RCFA and TPM practitioner, Rolly Angeles is the man I would turn to if I needed help in the Far East. He has a fund of knowledge, a patient approach to those who are less well informed, and eagerness to help.


Maintenance is not about preventing failures nor zeroing down on breakdowns but rather maintenance is all about understanding the consequences of every single failure itself, hence the very best maintenance strategy to use depends upon the consequences of every  failure itself.


Larry Bachus or more commonly known as the “Pump Guy” has more than 30 years of experience on industrial pumps.  Although I was very close to meeting Larry in India last 2008, the day I arrived was the day he departed since we both served as a resource speaker at a conference.  I hope one day to meet Larry and do a joint conference together for the benefit of the delegates.  All I can say about Larry is that if you have pump and seal problems in your industry, Larry is the one that you can count on. You can reach Larry Bachus at his website on http://www.bachusinc.com


Larry’s Message:


Although Rolly and I live and work on the opposite sides of the earth, our
travels take us to some of the same places.  My wish is to do a joint
seminar with Rolly. Rolly is dedicated to his work and mission. I believe
our joint information on RCM and Industrial Pumps will complement each other
and most benefit the seminar attendees. I believe Rolly and I will make a
good team.

Mike’s Message:


Rolly Angeles first contacted me to let me know that he provided industrial maintenance and reliability training. Improving industrial maintenance performance is a passion we share in common.  His resume as an industrial maintenance trainer was strong and his coverage of industrial maintenance and reliability improvement training courses broad.  When I looked at his industrial maintenance and reliability website I could see that he was a man committed to his love of seeing a world class maintenance performance in industrial operations.  When I learnt that Rolly was getting his first book published, World Class Maintenance Management: the 12 Disciplines I made sure that I was on his list of first edition buyers. His obvious experience and knowledge on the important details that produce world class maintenance and reliability performance came through strongly in that wonderful maintenance management book.  Most importantly he keeps nothing hidden from you when he works with you and you can be sure that he only wants the very best results for your operation that he can deliver.

Howard Witt is one of the veterans when it comes to the subject of reliability and maintenance.  Based in Australia, I met Howard last April 2013 as we were both speakers for a conference in Malaysia sponsored by Asia Iknowledge.  As I get to chat with Howard, he displayed a wide knowledge on the subject of maintenance.  My thinking with this guy is that Howard is like the Rolling Stones, the more they age the better they become.


Larry’s Message:


Rolly’s book on “World Class Maintenance Management” comprehensively explains the 12 Disciplines and thus provides a valuable reference for maintenance personnel. He has a dynamic vibrant personality, which he uses to  presents the knowledge and wisdom condensed in his book in interesting and dynamic ways. He has a broad knowledge of the field of maintenance and operator involvement in achieving greatest profitability from production plant. Rolly is an excellent experienced trainer in Reliability and Maintenance Best Practice.

I would like to thank Peter Todd for writing the foreword message of my new book on Maintenance - Roadmap to Reliability.  Peter has over 40 years experience in maintenance and reliability engineering, mostly in a heavy industry environment.  For the last eleven years Peter have worked for SIRF Roundtables which is a membership network aimed at sharing best practice information.  He has also experience in Condition Monitoring and for the last 8 years have run the SIRF Condition Monitoring and Lubrication National Forum with over 200 people attending.


Peter’s Message:


The unique strength that Rolly Angeles brings to this book is that he has had significant expertise in implementing both TPM and RCM and so can bring these two methodologies together seamlessly. There are very few people who have had experience in both approaches.  All this technical stuff that gets me excited might not mean much to many of you. Luckily Rolly keeps things interesting with his engaging stories, his personal insights and his fast pace all of which keep things moving along. I love the words of wisdom at the start of each chapter and the multiple choice questions at the end of each chapter that check you have understood what you have read.
