Learn how to boost operations horsepower through high performance maintenance.
TBM Managing Director, David Pate, states the obvious, “I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t measure equipment performance.”
All too often, we see frequent equipment breakdowns, excessive scrap, reduced yield, long changeovers, unplanned maintenance costs and upset customers who are't getting what they ordered. Oftentimes, it is the result of a disconnected maintenance strategy where the prevalent mindset is to "run it till it breaks". Many leadership teams don't always connect the value of proactively measuring equipment performance to long-term profitability, customer satisfaction and growth.
Maintenance isn't just a tactical activity. It is also a strategic imperative that helps to control cots and mitigate business risks. With increasing pressure on business margins, companies should take a more engaged approach to equipment maintenance--moving from a reactive model to a more disciplined model centered on predictability and maximum reliability. It's really about aligning equipment and maintenance performance with operations and ultimately, company performance.
