On My Mind:
Fall Certification Series:
We've been building online courses now for the last few months and can deliver training using video conferencing. In-person training onsite is best for making real improvements to your operations. Still, you can do a lot of improvements by filming an area or process and sharing online.
Courses are scheduled for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.

CI Terms Defined
"Total Productive Maintenance"
Also known as TPM. Aims at maximizing equipment effectiveness throughout the entire life of the equipment. It seeks to involve maintenance and operators in a program to keep equipment running effectively.
A key metric is "OEE" - Operational Equipment Effectiveness - which is calculated by measuring uptime, run rate, and scrap to generate an overall metric we can use as a baseline to determine the impact of future improvements.
