The business case for reliability is simple – a higher capacity, lower cost, safer, and environmentally sound operation. In a typical plant it is common that after applying reliability principles production capacity will improve by 10% or more, with little or no capital investment, maintenance costs will decline by 10%, and other knock-on benefits will accrue – lower energy costs, better quality, fewer injuries, and improved employee engagement and morale.
In this session we will be discussing with our special guest Drew Troyer, the creation of the business case, e.g., current state, future state, business case based on that, and action plan. The business case will require 1) leadership engagement, 2) production and maintenance collaboration, as well as a partnership and collaboration with marketing and sales, design, purchasing, and training, 3) measures that facilitate collaboration, not silos, and 4) a process for engaging the workforce, e.g., routine, structured improvement time.
We hope you enjoy this episode!
