Lean Maintenance is gaining traction as a sound strategy to keep equipment running and productivity humming. The hardest part is getting started. On Thursday, March 20 at 1 p.m. CDT, Plant Engineering will present a Webcast that looks at the steps needed to implement a sound Lean Maintenance strategy on your plant floor and to begin to reap the benefits.

Learning objectives:
-The value of Lean Maintenance as a plant-floor strategy and the history of lean
-The steps and tools needed to get started down the road to Lean
-Getting plant-floor buy-in from line workers
-Incorporating technology into Lean maintenance

  • 23. 5S • “Seiri” – Sort (tidiness and/or organize) – The workplace is rid of anything that is unnecessary. • “Seiton” – Straighten (orderliness) – The workplace must be arranged in a systematic manner that will encourage efficiency and will reduce unnecessary travel and/or motion. • “Seiso” – Shine also Scrub (cleanliness) – Machines must be kept clean making leaks and other defects more easily recognized. • Seiketsu – Standardize – Everyone maintains the same basic standards for cleanliness in the workplace. • Shitsuke – Systematize, Sustain – Maintaining a culture of discipline. Workplace standards are maintained day after day. Once attained, the workplace is kept safe and efficient.
  • 24. 5S Numbers Game

  • 26. Sort - Remove what is not needed Now, how high can you count the numbers from 1 to 30 in 15 seconds?
  • 27. Simplify - Organize Now, how high can you count the numbers from 1 to 30 in 15 seconds?
  • 28. Standardize – Put in order Now, how easy can you count the numbers from 1 to 30 in 15 seconds?
  • 29. Sustain - What‟s Missing? See how easy it is to recognize abnormalities and Sustain when you use the 5S Process.
  • 30. A Comparison of 5S & PME 5S PME Organized: Distinguish between the less essential and the necessary.1 Seiri “Separate” Step 1: Eliminate all non-value added tasks from the PM. Neat: Put things where they best meet their functional purpose. 1 Seiton “Straighten” Step 2: Reassign appropriate tasks to operations or to lubrication routes. Clean: Inspect for and eliminate waste, dirt and damage.1 Seiso “Scrub” Step 3: Eliminate all tasks that do not directly address a specific failure mode. Standardized: Maintain known, agreed upon conditions.1 Seiketsu “Standardize” Step 4: Ensure all remaining tasks follow a standardized format including clear definition, specific steps, necessary safety warnings, appropriate tools and required parts. Disciplined: Practice the habit of doing what is required even if its difficult.1 Shitsuke “Systematize” Step 5: Make sure all tasks are quantitative in nature with specific, measurable activities detailing nominal measurements with minimum and maximum allowable limits. 1 – A Second Look At 5S, James Van Patten, Quality Progress, October 2006

  • 33. Muda #1 – Over Production • Lean Definition: – Making more than what is needed or making it earlier than needed • Reliability Application: – Over-maintenance • Elimination Strategy – Develop a deeper understanding of the true nature of the equipments failure patterns and adjust the maintenance strategy to match.
  • 34. Muda #2 - Transportation • Lean Definition: – Moving products farther than is minimally required. • Reliability Application: – Excessive side trips by crafts personnel during work execution • Elimination Strategy – Improved maintenance job planning and improved job plan procedures. – Create an accurate Bill of Materials for each asset. – Insure parts are stored, maintained and transported in a manner that does not reduce their life cycle. – Use CBM technologies to help troubleshooting
  • 35. Muda #3 - Waiting • Lean Definition: – Products waiting on the next production step, or people waiting for work to do. • Maintenance and Reliability Application: – Instead of people waiting for work to do, it is people waiting to do work. The job is planned and may in fact be planned well, but the timing with operations was poorly coordinated. The inter- functional coordination was non-existent or at best disconnected. • Elimination Strategy – Inter-departmental communication and coordination must rise to the top of the list of priorities.
  • 36. Muda #4 - Inventory • Lean Definition: – Having more inventory than is minimally required. Excess Inventory. Deadliest type of waste. • Maintenance and Reliability Application: – Organizations who continue to operate in a reactive manner, never know what is going to break next. And as such, a large amount of spare parts need to warehoused on-site or nearby for the next emergency. • Elimination Strategy – Implement inspection strategies that detect defects earlier and thus allow more time to respond..
  • 37. Muda #5 - Motion • Lean Definition: – People moving or walking more than minimally required. • Maintenance and Reliability Application: – Poor Wrench Time – Troubleshooting – Poor Craft Skills creates rework • Elimination Strategy – Improved Planning – Better inspection methods – Improved procedures and improved craft skills

  • 40. Muda #6 – Processing Itself • Lean Definition: – Stand alone processes that are not linked to upstream or downstream processes. – Not combining tasks to simplify the process – Essentially, „processing itself‟ = process simplification • Maintenance and Reliability Application: – Overly complex design – No standardization of parts across like machines • Elimination Strategy – Maintainability and parts standardization must become a major focus of design/redesign efforts.
  • 41. Muda #7 – Defects • Lean Definition: – The effort involved in inspecting for and eliminating defects. • Maintenance and Reliability Application: – For maintenance, defects are the deadliest type of waste. – It is not the presence of defects that plague an organization, it is how that organization deals with those defects. • Elimination Strategy – Immediately begin the planning process to deal with the defect and then identify and eliminate the root cause of the problem.

  • 43. P-F Curve
  • 44. Muda #8 - Safety • Lean Definition: – Unsafe work areas creates lost work hours and expenses. • Maintenance and Reliability Application: – A decrease in emergency repairs always results in a decrease in safety incidents. • Elimination Strategy – And an increase in reliability has proven time and time again to produce a decrease in injury rates.
  • 45. Reliability (OEE) Impact on Safety Source: Ron Moore, Making Common Sense Common Practice.
  • 46. Muda #9 - Information • Lean Definition: – The age of electronic information and enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) requires current / correct master data details. • Maintenance and Reliability Application: – Machinery configuration and component attribute data needs to be correct. – All labor and materials should be captured on the correct work order. • Elimination Strategy – A culture of information discipline must be fostered
  • 47. Kaizen • Not an event…but an attitude • “the willingness to constantly pursue improvement one small step at a time.” • Not big projects or major initiatives, but tiny changes every single day • Gentle pressure, relentlessly applied
  • 48. Pursuing Lean Maintenance & Reliability • Identify the Process – VSM, Process Plots, Six Sigma, Work Sampling Study, etc. • Identify Waste – Muda – Non-value Added Tasks • Convert Waste to Value-Added Work or Eliminate • Document New Process – Create Standard Work (e.g. Effective Work Procedures) • Continually Improve Everything – Daily Management • Monitor Progress – Track Process Lead Time
