How To Achieve Inventory Process Reliability

As companies seek to achieve world-class maintenance reliability, many are discovering that the weak link in the chain is a lack of inventory process reliability.  Maintenance reliability too often suffers for the lack or misplacement of parts, and automated processes can only do so much without the support of your maintenance team.

During this recorded webinar, Dan Floen, President of PM2, presents the foundational elements of a self-directed, high-performance work team.  Ultimately, inventory process reliability rests in the hands of a fully-committed team that understands the connection between consistent labor performance and the overall success of your organization.
The insights offered will help illustrate the importance of ongoing inventory reliability. As key takeaways from the webinar, you will be provided with:

-Methods and industry best practices for improving inventory control
-Ways to engage your maintenance team toward better inventory procedures

Asset Criticality and Risk Ranking – Recorded Webinar

Wouldn’t it be useful to know precisely how much time and resource should be applied to each of your assets?  With Asset Criticality, organizations are able to rate assets to determine how critical each piece of equipment is to areas such as safety, product quality, customer issues, environmental issues, and production.

During this 40 minute recorded session, guest speaker Terry Harris from Reliable Process Solutions LLC provides an overview of Asset Criticality and Risk Ranking and discusses how to:

  1. Derive the criticality rating for each piece of equipment
  2. Understand which equipment is important and critical to the process
  3. Assign resources and time based on equipment criticality value

What Data should I save in my CMMS?

ScreenShot2So, you have implemented a CMMS system for your maintenance program – great! Now we want to help you learn what data you are able to extract, what information you are able to pull from that system, and why it is important. We want to change how you think about metrics and how you get your business to think about metrics.

One of the most common uses of a CMMS system is to gather data you can use to make important business decisions. Without data, decisions are reached by discussions and debates that are often won by seniority. It is clear that a CMMS system can help you organize work, manage large volumes of work orders, call-ins, breakdowns, and overall tracking.

This whitepaper on Performance Metrics That Matter, written by eMaint Director of Engineering Services Gil Acosta, will explore why you need metrics, how you get started, and how to gather data from your CMMS.
