Webinar Conference Call


This training is designed for learning basic improvement tools and focus improvement methodology, leading to the permanent elimination of any kind of equipment related losses on the production shop floor. During the training we will utilize a practical example and review a case study to illustrate how to collectively use tools such as an Investigated report, Theory of operation,

5W2H, 6M, and Why / Why analysis to find counter measure to eliminate the root cause of losses. The methodology for this training is based on a derivative of the Deming Cycle (Plan, Do, Check, Standardize) and meets the standards for the Performance Maintenance (PM) Pillar of both TPM and WCM. This is the key methodology used to eliminate the reoccurrence of equipment breakdowns; yielding significant gains in machine efficiency. Though this training is equipment loss focused, the base tools can also be easy adapted to address losses in all of there functional areas of the supply chain.
