Are you tired of constantly facing unexpected interruptions that disrupt your production processes? Does your team struggle to keep up with maintenance and breakdowns, leaving you stressed and overwhelmed? If so, it’s time to take a step back and look at the big picture.

At every production site, teams from various departments must work together cohesively to achieve their targets and keep everyone happy. However, it only takes one unexpected interruption to turn everything upside down, sending the team into panic mode. Production may refuse to release equipment for maintenance, Maintenance may be overwhelmed with breakdowns and lacking the necessary time or parts to fix things properly, Procurement may be stressed over the high costs of expediting emergency spares, and Quality may refuse to release batches due to failing to meet quality parameters. Meanwhile, despite reducing headcount, the General Manager is trying to determine why the site is over budget.

If any of this sounds familiar, it’s time to act. As a former Maintenance Planner, Site Engineer, and Maintenance Manager, our speaker, Dave Porrill, has been in your shoes. He knows what it takes to bring reliability to your production environment, and I’m excited to share my knowledge with you.

Are you ready to see improvements in your production environment? Then, join us for a webinar that will explore the factors that can contribute to the problems described above and illustrate how the team can improve their overall equipment availability and process reliability when these elements are set up effectively in an integrated fashion.

Attendees will understand what areas to focus on and how no single factor can be targeted in isolation. Reliability in the production environment requires the cooperation and participation of many people across the organization. Any operational leader that ignores the importance of this multi-dimensional integration does so at their peril.

During the webinar, we will discuss the critical factors that can make or break your reliability improvement strategy.
