Operator Essential Care – Keys to A Successful Program, 19PEERS
Basic equipment inspections are a part of every successful reliability program. Yet many facilities struggle to effectively implement these inspections at the floor level. This presentation will focus on some of the common issues associated with implementing basic equipment inspections and how to overcome those issues.
Operator essential care might appear easy on paper, but implementing a successful and sustainable program is more nuanced that one might think. Having the right technology and the right inspection data is only part of the process. You also need the right culture, the right plan, and the right system of checks and balances in place to ensure that your program creates the most value for your facility for years to come and does not become another shelved program. Communication is the key to a successful operator essential care program. Below are some examples of best practices for communication:
- How are operators notified of the program and do they understand why it is being implemented.
- Operator involvement in route development, how will the inspections fit with other duties.
- Feedback as to status of issues identified during a route.
- Success criteria and results such as reduced lost time, improved productivity.
- Recognition from management of a successful implementation.
Armed with these best practices, you will be well equipped to establish a world class operator essential care program as part of the broader reliability vision at your facility.
