Reducing Maintenance Costs – A Manageable Journey

One of the most dramatic results from Lean is a reduction in all forms of inventory as “pull” starts to have an effect. This means there is less inventory to cover up the problems of equipment failure and downtime. Reliability comes from implementing a maintenance system that prevents problems from occurring in the first place and when problems do arise, the repair is fast and effective.

This Reducing Maintenance Costs White Paper describes how to implement a system of skills and processes that reduce overall maintenance costs and improve process reliability.
