This study analyses the reliability of manufacturing equipment utilised in a company in Nigeria. The methodology consists of obtaining failure data of the piling machine made of thirteen main components from the maintenance department of the company for a period of one year (January to December 2011). Parameters were determined using the two-parameter Weibull Distribution. From the data, the reliability of the Piling Machine was evaluated to be 0.5557. The value is low and therefore recommendations are suggested on ways to improve this index of performance.
