Making the Most of Your Assets
A goal of every company is to better utilize their manufacturing assets and achieve the maximum possible return on those investments. Over the course of the last 2 years Dow Corning has embarked on a project to accomplish just that. The project encompasses PM RLINK and 2 methodologies that are gaining popularity in industry, Six Sigma and Total Effective Equipment Productivity (TEEP) / Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). In last years presentation I discussed how Dow Corning utilized PM RLINK and our expected savings. This year I will provide realized savings and updates about how the project has progressed. There will be new information on the uses of PM RLINK for condition monitoring and how we are adding Root Cause Investigation (RCI) to our TEEP/OEE efforts to create a rich suite of tools for collecting and analyzing asset failures using the Six Sigma methodologies.
