Maintenance Strategy

Maintenance Sustainable Improvement Model

What are the essential elements that a maintenance department need to add value to a business?

There are five fundamentals that, if delivered to a high standard, will deliver a very professional maintenance department.

Within each of these five elements are a number of component areas that are regarded as essentials to world class manufacturing and form the basis to build an improvement strategy for the maintenance department.

The Maintenance Sustainable Improvement Model (SIM) gives a subjective view of the current situation within the department and creates a base for strategic improvements to begin.

In conjunction with the Maintenance SIM we offer a four step Maintenance Strategy building process that prioritises which improvements are valuable to the business and department.

Four Step Maintenance Strategy Building:

  1. Strategic Prioritisation
  2. Strategic Roadmap
  3. 100 Day Plan
  4. Strategic Document

Strategic roadmaps and action plans ensure everybody is aware of what needs to be done and when it needs to be done by. This process results in a 9000+ word strategy document that emphasises the Maintenance department’s commitment to improvement.

Testimonials

Over the past three months I have been concentrating mainly on changeover reduction, waste reduction and increased throughput. There has also been a challenge to behavioural patterns. All of these efforts have been using the knowledge that you gave me and I am delighted to say that all have been successful, culminating in increased throughput, less waste and an increase in OEE from an average of 78% to around 90%. There has also been a marked improvement with people issues.

I assumed that if the machines were running, everything was fine. It has really opened my eyes. Personally, it has given me a new lease of life.
