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

Inspiring the people in our business to understand how they can improve and the business can therefore develop, is an important building block in our drive for improving efficiency within our business. Engaging everyone in the business to realise that we can be better and any little improvement drives down to the bottom line. This has been seen both in the way the staff have engaged and enjoyed the experience and the evidence of reduced costs has helped the business to become more efficient. This process never stops but it is the tools that have been developed by Lauras International that has allowed us to deliver this important work at both our potato pack houses.
