COURSE DURATION: 3 days

COURSE DESCRIPTION

As more and more companies fight for survival and compete on a global scale, the implementation of ‘lean production’ or ‘world-class manufacturing’ practices has become commonplace.  These practices eliminate all forms of waste and fat (such as buffer stock, excess capacity and overproduction and long lead times) from the operational process in order to produce just what is needed when it is needed, with optimum utilization of resources.

In this sort of environment the reliability of equipment is very crucial, since a small breakdown can stop a whole plant. Equipment related problems also affect the factory’s ability to sustain satisfactory quality standards, while failures could have safety or environmental consequences too. Therefore in a capital intensive plant, the effective maintenance of equipment should be should be one of the key elements of any improvement initiative.
