Optimizing Maintenance Through Lean Practices

Did you know that up to 60% of your maintenance personnel's time is wasted! Wasted on activities that add no value to your organization's process or bottom line. There are many forms of waste in the production process that we have learned through our experiences in Lean Manufacturing. By comparison, it is now possible to apply these learnings in identifying and eliminating waste in the maintenance department.

Lean Manufacturing has proven to be a powerful process to optimize manufacturing in today's competitive environment. Marshall Institute's Lean Maintenance has taken the best of the lean world and applied it to maintenance optimization.

As manufacturers, both discreet and process, search for means of improving plant reliability, reducing manufacturing costs, and staying ahead of the competition, the practical application of lean methodologies to the maintenance function is now a reality. Many organizations use the term "lean maintenance", Marshall Institute is now applying the "true" methodologies of lean manufacturing to improving the maintenance organization.

Who Should Attend

This state-of-the-art 2-day seminar covers all implementations steps to begin a Lean Maintenance process. It is designed to benefit every level of maintenance personnel, providing the most up-to-date facts and techniques on the maintenance technology that is revolutionizing the way our industry operates. It examines the importance of creating a Lean Maintenance Department in a Lean Manufacturing environment and how Lean Maintenance integrates with other maintenance improvement initiatives such as RCM, TPM, and WCM. A "must" for Plant Engineers, Maintenance Superintendents, Maintenance Managers, and Reliability Managers.
