  18. 18. A Few Simple Tips / Lessons Learned 1. Insure you have an Effective Vision backed by strong and sustained leadership (Alignment is a requirement) 2. Educate everyone from technicians to plant management – “STRATEGY TO ACHIEVE WORLD-CLASS PRODUCTION THROUGH RELIABILITY” ------------- It is all about the conversation! – Management cannot achieve success without everyone being aligned 3. Maintenance should be treated as an investment rather than a cost – Have a comprehensive philosophy on which your maintenance management system is built along with a Proactive Maintenance Model – Maintenance is an investment, as such it is expected to show a positive return by improving the profitability of an operation – 100% use of the Maintenance Software must not be optional 4.
