Implementing Lean Maintenance

  • Dates: 3 day training workshop
  • Location: In Company Course
  • Cost: £4500 up to 10 Delegates

Enhancing Maintenance Value

Lean Manufacturing can only deliver high levels of added value when equipment, processes and tooling are in peak condition.  To do that Lean Maintenance provides the toolbox to stabilise and extend component life so that operational assets can produce higher levels of added value for longer.   That starts with the evolution of maintenance workflows to systematically reduce waste and non value adding activities, releasing time to focus on enhancing process effectiveness, resilience and flexibility.   That includes adapting work routines to take advantage of advances in technology and digitisation.

This 3-day workshop leads delegates through the theory and practices of Lean Maintenance. In addition to an explanation of how Lean theory applies to Maintenance routines, delegates work in teams to apply Lean Maintenance principles to up to 3 assets to create examples of:

  • Lean Asset Care covering preventive maintenance, inspection and servicing routines,
  • Lean Execution  covering standardisation, systemised workflows and engagement,
  • Lean Systems covering stores, performance management and CMMS.

Deliverables include the development of a bespoke Lean Maintenance route map to release maintenance resource and improve asset effectiveness.

Maintenance leadership of the above processes within a Lean, TPM or Six Sigma programme has been shown to increase annualised gains by as much as 50%.
