By empowering your operators to perform regular inspections and maintenance on your machines you will increase your productivity, profitability, and Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE). At the same time you will transform your frontline staff from “button pushers and switch flickers” to true, engaged, partners responsible for the productivity of your machines and equipment. Let’s learn more about how to make this become a reality for your business.
If you using paper forms, there are many benefits you can realize by switching to software, such as increased adoption, real-time escalation, on-demand instruction, rich data, and reducing the burden of administration. Here is our best take on the benefits our customers have realized through working with our platform.
Autonomous Maintenance (AM) is the most important pillar within the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) methodology because it provides maintenance teams with the data and the time to make the other pillars happen. There are numerous benefits that can be realized with a well managed AM program. Here are the top benefits that we have witnessed while working with our customers.
Program performance has increased by over 500% with over 50,000 5S, CIL and Centerline submissions since launch.
Complicated manual processes, data entry, messy paper forms or complicated spreadsheets can doom your new Autonomous Maintenance program to failure. Fortunately, Industry 4.0 and digitization provide us with many new tools to help make the implementation and execution of AM much easier.
Here are some of the best practices and core challenges we’ve found helping massive global organizations, as well as regional manufacturers, to reap the benefits of Autonomous Maintenance over the last decade.
Deciding that you’d like to implement Autonomous Maintenance in your plant is a great first step towards promoting a more efficient and profitable plant. Now you’re faced with the real challenge – how to begin?
When properly implemented, AM can have a massive impact on the efficiency and profitability of a factory by reducing downtime, unplanned stoppages, while increasing OEE. The basic promise of AM is that it “outsources” simple maintenance tasks to operators which relieves maintenance teams to focus on more proactive concerns.
Autonomous Maintenance, or AM, is part of the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) school of Lean Manufacturing. It is one of the 8 TPM pillars which aims to increase the productivity of a plant in a sustainable way.
