You already know that proper maintenance is the key to maximizing uptime, output and revenue. But how do you equip your maintenance crews for success and drive continuous process improvement in the digital era? This on-demand webinar illustrates how you can achieve significant improvements in OEE with on-time and error-free maintenance by digitizing maintenance procedures and empowering maintenance crews with modern digital tools. During this 60-minute session, two seasoned industry veterans will share their hard-won secrets to world-class maintenance execution. You’ll learn best practices for tightening coordination between operational teams and maintenance crews, increasing maintenance crew member engagement, and empowering your team to truly own their processes.

Equipment failure in production is an inconvenient reality that can reduce production, reduce capability and most importantly, reduce profits. Adhesives can help reduce downtime and mean time between failures, but knowing the right adhesive to use can be tricky, and can be the difference between success and failure. A new type of adhesive can provide universal adhesion to whatever you may be repairing with superior speed of cure while also simplifying your adhesive selection process and returning your equipment to serviceable status.

If your plant is like most across America, then your preventive maintenance tasks are falling by the wayside, precisely due to a shrinking workforce. Not only does this shrinking workforce create overworked teams, but worse yet, it creates an experience gap that’s even more deadly to our rotating machines. This slippery slope has forced us to skip good PM program necessities, causing more reactive maintenance. This on-demand webinar shows you and your team how to be more effective and efficient every day to help keep everyone from being overworked and overwhelmed.

If you have attempted to develop a detailed maintenance strategy you will be familiar with failure modes, effects (and criticality) analysis [FMEA/FMECA] and reliability centered maintenance [RCM]. If the world would stop for 18 months we would all have time to perform such detailed analysis on every asset to understand all the failure modes, the consequences, and thus have the perfect maintenance strategy. But most of us don't have time for such detailed analysis. The asset criticality ranking is a great tool, but so many people have tried and failed to use ACR effectively, and many have found that the ACR was too superficial (and did not cope with a great many real-world situations) to provide the detail necessary. In this on-demand webinar, we explain how the asset criticality ranking can be developed to quickly, and effectively, identify the most critical assets.

Standard mobile devices get the right information in the hands of your field teams. Management dashboards provide the real-time visibility required to make the best decisions to keep the turnaround on time and on budget. Analytics capabilities allow you to measure and analyze performance, plan future activities based on hard data, and capture and leverage best practices within your organization. However, much less talked about is how companies are using these tools to streamline semi-annual and annual shutdown events. In this on-demand webinar, we will explain what digitalization is and how it can be applied to provide benefits in the challenging and dynamic environment of a turnaround.

Getting your maintenance team to excellence is a process that involves a variety of best practices. A great place to start is discussing which metrics are the most important for your organization – but that’s just the first step. You need to follow up your objectives with tracking and measuring data while making sure that your goals follow industry best practices. It may sound like a lot of work, but with a few guiding principles it’s easier than you think.

This on-demand webinar gives you the insights you need to understand what’s limiting your factory’s performance, and the tools you need to improve your operation. You'll learn how to improve response time to performance issues on the line, establish Lean principles related to OEE and performance, and set up and configure more efficient systems without costly capital investment.

You are probably well aware of the benefits of reliability. All those proactive tasks, condition monitoring tests, and all the other essential elements of a reliability program seem like very good ideas. But there is one very big roadblock: breaking out of the reactive maintenance “emergencies” that pop up every day. When is there time to fix tomorrow’s problems when it is almost impossible to keep up with today’s problems? Well, there is a way to break out of this nasty cycle, and we will explain how to do it in this on-demand webinar.

Equipment failure is an unwelcome but unavoidable reality that negatively affects a facility’s production time, capability, and workplace safety. If you had the chance to identify and remedy the most out-of-control maintenance costs while reducing your team's reactive workload, would you do it? In this on-demand webinar, we explain how a combination of consultation, training, and implementation can help your plant teams achieve a cost saving solutions process.

Shutdowns, turnarounds, and outages are complex, high-cost undertakings that have impacts across the entire business, from shareholders and board members to front-line maintenance workers. When not well-planned and managed, STOs can create safety risks, unplanned downtime, and cost overruns, resulting in reduced profitability if the organization is not able to return on schedule to full operating capacity.

There is an awareness gap between management and maintenance that can result from two factors: (1) management may have limited or no knowledge of the maintenance function and its ability to contribute to the manufacturing process; and (2) maintenance personnel, managers included, can have a limited understanding of the business side of manufacturing. The result is that management and maintenance often are unsure how they together contribute to the company's success. This on-demand webinar examines what can cause this awareness gap and suggests ways to overcome it.

Maintenance is a team sport. Aometimes that means bringing in free agents to help with tasks that aren't core competencies. When an organization considers contracting MRO services, the level of service should be consistent with the rest of the organization. This on-demand webinar explores the pros and cons of outsourcing.

When he took the reins as launch manager of the Dodge Dart at Chrysler's assembly plant in Belvidere, Illinois, Bob Allen used the pillars of world-class manufacturing, a Fiat-led culture that embraces workplaces integration, to make the plant a state-of-the-art facility. This presentation by Allen explains how they did it, why they did it, and how it ultimately made the plant one of the most successful in the world.

In plant rearrangement, as in other technical work, the devil is always in the details. But the time and expense to produce a detailed plant layout is often out of reach for maintenance management. Frequently, the result is poorly planned rearrangements that leave tradespeople standing around while engineers and managers try to figure ways around details that were missed or ignored when the move was planned. This on-demand webinar offers real-world case studies about the use of 3D laser mapping to provide current and proposed plant layouts.
