Description:  

'Process Plant And Equipment UPTIME' Best Practice Workforce Training Program - 150 Total Productive Maintenance Articles for your machine operators and workforce TPM training and development. This 150 article program, is part of the TPM lean manufacturing training series that was specifically designed for equipment operator training. Even though some are mechanical engineering articles, they are written with the production machine operator in mind. Great to supplement or start your own in-house TPM manufacturing training programs.

 

These articles where written for use in your own in house employee training program, and written so all of your workforce can understand, not just your maintenance department. Print and distribute throughout your plant, these best practice maintenance and engineering articles so the knowledge transfer will result in continuous process improvement for your company. Instructors can incorporate these article in their curriculum for students so they learn additional real-world equipment maintenance and engineering knowledge too.

 

Full of best practice maintenance, engineering, reliability and fixed asset management practices for the workforce, and great for students of mechatronics. They can also be used to supplement your cross training program for your machine operator, industrial tradesman, millwright, technicians and field service technician, as well as refreshers and additional insight for your current maintenance and engineering team.

 

As part of your Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) program, print and distribute these articles throughout your facility so relevant employees have access. Best to distribute articles at regular intervals, as not to overwhelm your machine operators with too much information at one time. But another approach would be print all as a reference library employees has access to any time they want.

 

The author of these training articles, Mike Sondalini, has more than 35 years in engineering and maintenance, which spans from mechanical engineering, strategic asset management to rotating equipment reliability. He is currently a world renown maintenance, reliability, Lean Six Sigma and quality system consultant. 

 

About 40 cents ($0.40) per maintenance article, to teach Engineering, Reliability, Maintenance and Fixed Asset Management to all your facility's workforce! Aren't your employees worth that? The ROI your company will see will be astronomical!
