Focus your entire organization on reliability
Most are aware of the positive impact that Preventive Maintenance (PM) has within an organization, however, few feel their program is effective enough. In a very competitive global market the pressure for cost & price reduction is tremendous. Faced with the challenge of aging equipment, many organizations are just keeping their heads above water fixing what breaks and neglecting PM or doing what PM inspections they can, all while using overtime taxed technicians. What's the best way to break this vicious cycle? Utilize the operator as a low cost available resource for early detection of problems (TPM).
