Event description


Industrial Maintenance Rt (IMRt)

CIWG Topic: Lean Maintenance Systems

This CIWG is proudly being hosted by SIRF Rt Member:

The CIWG topic in detail:

What applies to operations should also apply to maintenance.
How is your organisation implementing lean principles in maintenance?
Lean tools, including 5S, SMED (single-minute exchange of die), standard work and Kanban, can all be successfully applied in the maintenance workshop. There are few workshops that couldn't use 5S to improve tool availability and reduce hazards.

  • SMED could allow us faster tooling changes on our maintenance equipment.

  • Standard work can vastly improve tool maintenance practices.

  • If there is a tool crib, why not implement a Kanban system for spare parts and consider vendor-managed inventory (VMI)? When we know our demand for spares we can manage them at a lower cost. Converting to VMI can reduce time spent managing small parts and swap inventory on the balance sheet for cash.

Whether you have a deeply ingrained Lean Maintenance system, or are just beginning this journey, there is always something to learn by sharing.

Join your peers as we discuss topics like:

  • Lean training for Maintenance personnel

  • Techniques for managing 5S in Maintenance areas

  • Benefits of Kanban for tools and spares

  • Reliability Engineers and Asset Managers role in Lean Maintenance

  • How to get started with Lean in Maintenance

  • The benefits of Lean principles in Maintenance
