Reliability Basics for Manufacturing Leaders

Dates: 12th October 2021
Location: 2 Hour Live On Line
Cost: £100 plus VAT

This 2 hour on-line awareness workshop provides an insight into how award winning and well respected organisations create the foundations for reliable, stable operations.

Much of the academic literature around reliability focusses on failure curves yet the majority of calls for immediate maintenance support are not to respond to failed components.

Most unplanned interventions are in response to issues such as jams, blockages, electrical trips or a build up of contamination.

In addition, although Reliability is often characterised as part of the Maintenance domain, much of the routine for production operators involves attention to avoid scrap or stoppages.

It is not uncommon for the Mean Time Between Intervention (MTBI) for a production line to be measured in minutes. 

By comparison, leading organisations have mean time between intervention measured in hours if not shifts. How do they do that?

Fundamentals of Safety Improvement

Dates: In house training workshop
Location: In house
Cost: Call 01491 845504

This workshop is designed to help participants to assure compliance in a way that not only prevent "accidents" but also refines ways of working so that they are easy to do right and difficult to do wrong. In turn this reduces the cost of compliance as well as improving level of added value. For everyone who wants to create and sustain a proactive safety function, that stays in control and avoids the risks of own goals.

Learn from the practices of best in class organisations who are able to manage safety, health & environmental compliance processes in a way that assures compliance but also drives out wasteful procedures, improves customer value and increases profits. These are organisations that have found out how to avoid difficult choices such as safety or production – they achieve both! Their cross functional risk based approach means that they are able to meet their legal and moral obligations without presenting a barrier to learning and improvement.

They are able to avoid the pitfalls of compliance systems which become overly bureaucratic and seem to foster the creation of petty restrictive practices.
