What is Operational Readiness?
Operational readiness is the idea that your product, solution, or project is ready to go without issue. It enables you to reduce operational risks and increase safety, productivity, and efficiency. This applies to every step of your process, from the initial stages of deployment to maintaining the systems and equipment you have on the job.
Why is Operational Readiness So Important?
One cannot overstate the importance of operational readiness, yet it isn’t always implemented. Since job sites can “technically” perform without this type of preparation, many will take a major risk by putting off this part of planning. These organizations open themselves up to serious problems, including failure to comply with industry standards and regulations. They also may face other issues: downtime for equipment, medical emergencies, and loss of product and profit.
