As you continually seek to improve your manufacturing operations, elevating your maintenance team to excellence is a process that involves a variety of best practices. With what seems to be an infinite array of improvement paths, how can you get started?

Before you jump into implementation, successful processes begin with discussing which metrics are the most important for your organization – but that’s just the first step. You need to follow up your objectives with tracking and measuring data while making sure that your goals align with industry best practices. It may sound like a lot of work, but with a few guiding principles it’s easier than you think.

Join us for a February 15 webinar with Senior Manufacturing Advisor Paul Lachance who will cover data best practices that will create the most impactful improvements with manufacturing operations like yours. He will discuss a variety of metrics that maintenance teams should measure, what your goals should be and what they mean to your organization as a whole.

The questions we’ll answer include:

  • What metrics should I track?
  • What are the best practices I need to keep in mind?
  • How do I get started?

Listen to Q&A with Wayne L. Glass, Maintenance Manager of Gillibrand Industrial Sands, to learn how they are getting started with their PM plans and why they chose to implement a CMMS.
