Free support tools and information released for the 5 Habits.

Inside my book, ‘5 Habits of an Extraordinary Reliability Engineer’, you will find “” links and QR codes within it (see the image). These link to various Reliability Extranet web pages, including the free tools that have been developed to support the book.

You will find in the book a Self-Assessment, PowerPoint Template, and articles on RCA and Fault Coding.

When the Self-Assessment is completed it gives you a ranking on how you are implementing each of the 5 Habits. To find the tool most helpful, I suggest you read the book, assess yourself, make some changes, and re-assess to see the improvements.

These are free and can be accessed by scanning the codes or clicking on the links in the Kindle version of the book. Have a try, scan the QR code in the attached image, and watch it take you to Reliability Extranet!

Please enjoy and if you have any suggestions for improvements to the supporting materials and tools, please let me know.

5 Habits: Introducing Gilbert, the Reliability Engineer

Gilbert is the Reliability Engineer in the 5 Habits of an Extraordinary Reliability Engineer. At the beginning of the book, Gilbert starts out frustrated. This is because he has no data, no tools, and no knowledge to use. By applying the 5 Habits he becomes confident as he is equipped with the right tools, enabled with knowledge, and justified with data.

There are over 40 illustrations in the 5 Habits. Most with Gilbert, but there are other characters as well. Paul the manager, Jackson the tradesman (Craftsman), and Gertrude the scientist.

These characters would not have come into existence except for Gary Silversides. Gary is MD of one of the SIRF Roundtables in Australia and one of the reviewers of the manuscript of the 5 Habits. He suggested that it needed illustrations. I took his advice and Gilbert was born.

Gary, when you mentioned that you had a “small part” in the 5 Habits, I feel that was understated. Many people that have seen the book have said “the illustrations have made the book”. To me, you have given a major contribution and for that I cannot thank you enough.

Tickets for the online launch will be available tomorrow. Seats will be limited. Connect with me to get the announcement on LinkedIn.

The countdown is on to the release of the 5 Habits. Check the counter here:

Introducing the ‘5 Habits of an Extraordinary Reliability Engineer’

Announcement from Peter Horsburgh:

I am very proud to announce that my first book, “5 Habits of an Extraordinary Reliability Engineer” is being released this month on the 15th of May.

I wanted to write a book that was different to all other reliability books, the book that I needed when I was a young engineer myself. I saw a gap in how to behave as a Reliability Engineer and what you needed to do day to day in order to ensure success of yourself and your plant.

Here comes the ‘The 5 Habits’!

If you want to keep updated on the free stuff I’m working on to support the book, make sure your connected to me on LinkedIn where I will be announcing them as soon as they are ready to go.


A very excited 7.
