Asset Maintenance

Invariably we see key pieces of plant within our factories in a poorly maintained condition, constantly breaking down or causing quality defects with operators who know very little about the machine.

To replace the machinery will cost a considerable sum of money and unless we change the way we look after the machinery it will probably need replacing again within 7 to 10 years. A never ending cycle of abuse and cost, that needs to be broken.

Lauras International has a four step approach to Asset Care / Autonomous Maintenance using a combined operator and maintenance strategy.

Through working with engineers on an Asset Care project operators increase their mechanical ability and start to take ownership for their machines. They are able to perform simple maintenance tasks such as changing wear parts and basic lubrication.

The engineering team are then freed up to perform pro-active rather than reactive duties. At the same time operators learn more about the detail of the way machines work from the maintenance team enabling them to start to spot the early stages of problems, that if not properly dealt with, would become a major problem in the future.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Testimonials

The course has helped me to understand that there are lots of different types of people but you need a good mix to be an effective team and to get the best results.

Front Line Manager – FLM Training

Firstly, Reckitt Benckiser and Lauras pulled together to improve efficiency levels and there was a focus on both external and internal resources. Before Lauras arrived efficiency was not good. Secondly, there was good methodology and training using operators to support its implementation. Thirdly, there was daily and hourly focusing on performance. Since Lauras left, improvements have been sustained.
