Updating IBM Maximo for Las Vegas Monorail
Read how we helped the only privately-owned mass transit system in the U.S. lower maintenance costs and increase reliability and efficiency of its assets.
To promote long-term success and commitment to increasing the reliability and efficiency of the Las Vegas Monorail, the transit organization needed to update their IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management software. GenesisSolutions was selected to carry out the upgrade and build a sustainable EAM foundation for a more reliable asset management program.
The 8 Pillars of Total Productive Maintenance - with Infor EAM
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) has been in the industrial dictionary for the past 45 years, yet attempts to effectively incorporate TPM have proved elusive for most organizations reaching for the underlying benefits.
Join us for a discussion about TPM and its relationship to the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) goal as OEE continues to be the primary measure of TPM effectiveness. The presenter will review the eight pillars of TPM and the relationship of each pillar to the six major losses that plague the manufacturing shop floor.
The presentation will delve into how these losses can best be addressed through the robust use of Infor EAM coupled with an effective maintenance strategy.
What Condition is Your Condition Monitoring Program In?
How do you create a culture where condition monitoring flourishes?
Condition monitoring (CM) is the backbone of any proactively maintained enterprise asset management program. How else can you and your team members ward off operational deficiencies and failures without knowing what shape your capital-intensive assets are in? How will you know when to respond to those metrics without real-time awareness? Better yet, how will you know when a response is unnecessary and undermining optimal preventative maintenance spend?
Highly effective CM cultures, however, take diligence, coordination, follow-through and proper resourcing - all things that require a consolidated effort from operators, technicians and floor supervisors. How do you create a culture where CM flourishes?
