Wouldn't it be great if things always ran smoothly and your equipment always worked the way it was supposed to? Unfortunately, things rarely work that way. And that means inefficiencies and costly delays for businesses. But there are things you can do about equipment problems.
This Workshop can help. Start by setting a goal for Zero Work Stoppages and then find ways to come as close to realizing your goal as possible. Measure your equipment's productivity and begin improving that by sustainable amounts. Add your Zero Work Stoppages goal to your standard goals for implementing TPM, RCM or win a JIPM prize. Think of it as part of your Continuous Improvement Journey.
In this Workshop, you will learn about four phases you encounter in your approach to reaching Zero Equipment Stoppages: stabilizing your failure intervals, improving your equipment productivity, striving for maintenance excellence and predicting our equipment's life. With equipment being a big part of conducting your business, you need to keep it working well if you want Zero Work Stoppages.
