Title:  Influencing Operations to Be Your Partner to Improve Reliability
Who owns your equipment? Who has the greatest exposure to detecting equipment failures? Who provides care for your equipment? If you did not answer “operations” for any of these questions, your facility is missing a partner that can have the greatest impact to the reliability of your assets. Most case studies from companies that have improved reliability show that Operations must be an integral part of the initiative to be successful. So how do you gain this partnership with your Operations group? How does a site move towards Operations ownership of the equipment?

This webinar will provide you methodologies and tools that you can use the next day you are in your facility. The discussion will start with how to gain buy-in from your operations group by developing the right value proposition and utilize change management techniques. This will be followed by developing metrics that allow those on the floor to understand their impact to the effort. The next step is to get them involved with Reliability walk through and root cause participation. We will design operator rounds that focus on variance control and defect elimination. We will cover how to utilize 5 why’s for floor personnel in order to ease the work of the maintenance department in its task to restore function.
 
Learning Objectives:
Importance of the Operations partnership to improve reliability 
How to assess the level of their current partnership 
Establishing Buy-In from Operations to move towards being a partner 
Designing metrics and their reporting that provides impact to those on the floor 
Designing participative methods to get Operations involved and at the same time teach them about Equipment care

Establishing a training program for Operations for Asset Care 
Designing an Operations Asset Care program that will “fit” in the culture of the facility
