Profit growth by maintenance excellence

A widely underestimated profit potential of many companies is maintenance in production and customer service. Usually maintenance can not find management attention. Neither is maintenance performance on the agenda of management meetings, nor do the members of the executive have maintenance experience. Only when executives demand the most suitable maintenance requirements, maintenance will quickly and sustainably contribute to profit growth. more….

Maintenance productivity as a competitive advantage

Controlling often reveals high maintenance costs as % of sales in combination with low maintenance productivity. Such a situation gives the company a chance to win a competitive advantage, if it taps the full productivity potential of maintenance.

Why stay productivity, lead time, and quality targets of business processes often far away from wasteless value-adding performance?

Businesses specify productivity, lead time, and quality targets for business processes driven by market requirements, benchmarks, and analyses. However these targets often stay far away from wasteless value-adding performance. Often pure value-adding performance contributes only 5% to costs or lead time. The root causes of that are usually varying, interacting, and remaining unclear. If the root causes are made transparent by Statistical Engineering, big performance leaps are possible. more….
