This is an actual success story. The key lessons learned were to focus on one equipment classification (ie. Electric Motors) until success is achieved, identify known Organizational Behaviors causing MTBF to be low or out of control (i.e. Lubrication of Motor Bearing Ineffective), measure Cost after MTBF is increasing, Continue this process on other Equipment Classifications after 1st experiment is successful and proven sustainable, always remain “Focused”.

Mean Time Between Failure Vs Cost

  1. 1. MTBF vs. Cost Focus was on “Equipment Class” (Electric Motors) Electric Motor MTBF – Plant Wide 2010 - 2011 “The Problem with Management is they are always measuring the wrong thing” - Peter Drucker (1909-2005) Motor Rebuild / Motor Purchases – Plant Wide 2010-2012 Actual Success Story – Lessons Learned• Focus MTBF on a specific Equipment Class• Identify known Organizational Behaviors causing MTBF to be out of control or low• Measure Cost after MTBF is increasing• Continue this process on other Equipment Classifications after 1st experiment is successful• Always Remain Focused “Lack of Focus = Lack of Success” 2010 2011 2012
