What is Maintenance’s Role in Continuous Improvement?

Written by: 


Continuous Improvement programs are not just for the manufacturing groups or departments we typically think of that produce, package, and inspect the product. Maintenance’s role is to ensure all the production, support equipment, and utilities needed are in working order. Additionally, they are responsible for ensuring any rated clean rooms have the proper air flow/quality, they meet their water quality standard, and ensure sufficient clean compressed air at the source for equipment, fixtures, or parts cleaning is available.  All of those responsibilities and more play a role in helping to reduce scrap, decrease product lots on hold, and diminish lost hours due to equipment downtime.
