Support Plan: Raising Standards

The Improvement Glide Path 

To secure lasting gains from the Reactive Maintenance Break Out and Scaling Up Road Maps involves actions to create and mobilise a realistic and achievable improvement glide path to improve process consistency, reduce defects and cut energy costs.

This is designed to reduce the effort needed to achieve stable running.  Despite the gains made so far, it is common for unplanned short stops to persists due to issues such as jams, blockages or electrical trips.   For organisations in this situation, 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.
