IS “LAUNCH” THE RIGHT LEARNING PATH FOR ME?
- Are your day-to-day maintenance activities planned and scheduled (versus reacting to unplanned occurrences)?
- Are your operators “process owners” rather than “button pushers”? Do you know how to accomplish that transition?
- Are operators involved in day-to-day equipment/process reliability activities? Are you familiar with how that works?
- Are maintenance, production, and engineering personnel communicating, cooperating, and collaborating with each other to ensure KPI’s are met? Do you know how to get that done?
If you answered “NO” to any of the above, then this is the best learning path to help you launch your TPM initiative and, your personal development in TPM.
