Team Buy-In is Critical
Paul Lachance, senior manufacturing advisor,
Dude Solutions, Cary, NC,
Top Implementation Tip: Get "buy
in" from the entire team. A CMMS
will impact and benefit many people,
often in different ways. For example, if
you are looking to improve efficiency, asset
reliability, and profitability, a CMMS can be a
big help. But, before you take on a project such as this, form a team
and ensure they are ready, willing, and able. No one likes to have
software forced on them.
It's also better for all, and usually much more effective, if the
entire team is involved at appropriate levels. What does management want in terms of metrics and reporting? What problems are
the maintenance/operations managers trying to solve? How can a
CMMS simplify the day-to-day battles
for the technicians? You won't know
unless they are all involved at the
appropriate levels. Full team buy-in
create a more
ultimately allows a more effective, effipredictable
cient, and quicker implementation.
Primary Benefit: A CMMS should
enable everyone do their job better
and look great while doing it! A reacand reduce
tive-maintenance culture can be toxic
and downtime is a killer to operations,
profitability, and morale.
A CMMS will improve uptime, create a more predictable production environment, and reduce the "fire fights" often found in a nonCMMS environment. Ever see a production supervisor the moment
they find out their critical asset is down unexpectedly?
When unplanned downtime becomes habit, it creates a toxic, unwelcoming environment. A CMMS changes all of that, and makes
you look good doing it!
Extend Electric Motor Lifespan with Lubrication Reliability Program
* High-Quality Electric Motor Grease
* Xport™ Clear Grease Guns
* Xport™ Single Point Lubricators
* Xpert™ Training
With 40 large electric motors running our grease kettles, we haven't replaced a single motor and have only
replaced three bearings in more than 18 years. How'd we do it?
LE's electric motor greases provide superior mechanical stability, oxidation resistance and low
oil bleed. Our single point lubricators eliminate under- and over-greasing and
cross-contamination, while freeing up time. Clear Grease Guns also eliminate
cross-contamination. Our maintenance team is trained on best practices, ensuring
success. LE can help you develop a program for your electric motors so you too can
experience long-lasting equipment, fewer repairs, and increased uptime. Learn
