Strategy is a plan for how the organization is to achieve this vision, while the policy is a statement of intent and a guideline to regulate decisions and achieve the desired objectives.
Below you can find an example of a Maintenance vision, a strategy and a policy.
Effective maintenance is critical to the success and efficiency of any plant or production facility. Proper maintenance ensures that all equipment is operating at optimal levels, which leads to increased reliability and availability. By keeping track of maintenance activities through a thorough and well-organized system, weaknesses and shortcomings can be identified and addressed before they become major problems.
At our facility, we place a strong emphasis on the importance of maintenance and the role it plays in ensuring the smooth and uninterrupted operation of our production equipment. We believe that by fostering a culture of commitment and respect for maintenance procedures and instructions, we can achieve cost-effective and reliable maintenance practices that will benefit our entire organization.
Through the use of graphical navigation and clear reporting, our employees are able to easily access and understand the maintenance history of each piece of equipment. This allows us to make informed decisions about when and how to perform maintenance, resulting in a more efficient and effective process.
Overall, we believe that by prioritizing maintenance and utilizing the right tools and resources, we can ensure the long-term success and profitability of our organization.
At our facility, we are dedicated to creating a high level of availability and operational safety in order to achieve our production goals while maintaining a financial balance. To do this, we follow the European maintenance standard (EN 13306) and its terminology as the foundation of our daily work.
Preventive maintenance is a key part of our strategy, as it allows us to proactively address potential issues and minimize the need for unscheduled maintenance operations. By using condition-based maintenance, we are able to plan and prioritize our maintenance activities in a way that maximizes efficiency and effectiveness.
In addition to following best practices in maintenance, we also prioritize close collaboration between maintenance and operating staff. By working together, we are able to identify and address potential problems early on, leading to a more smooth and more efficient production process.
Finally, we believe in the power of the LEAN concept and strive to continuously improve and solve problems at their root causes. By consistently following these principles, we are able to create a high-performing and reliable maintenance program that supports the success of our organization.
At our organization, we believe that maintenance is an essential part of ensuring the success and efficiency of our operations. We strive for maintenance that is characterized by efficiency, quality, flexibility, and safety, and we believe that strong leadership is a crucial part of achieving these goals.
We believe that leadership in maintenance must be visible and supportive and that all of us, from managers to technicians, have a role to play in teaching, mentoring, and coaching our colleagues. Rapid feedback is also essential in order to continuously improve and evolve our maintenance practices.
One key aspect of effective maintenance is a deep understanding of the terminology used in the European Standard (EN 13306). We expect our maintenance technicians to not only be familiar with this terminology but to be able to use it confidently and effectively in their daily work. By ensuring that all of our technicians have a strong foundation in maintenance terminology, we are better able to communicate and collaborate towards our common goals.
