The maintenance team for a large cold formed steel product company is facing rapid loss of their most experienced team members’ valuable tribal knowledge due to retirement. Management sought a solution to document processes the next generation of employees could use.
REDLIST’s maintenance management will allow the maintenance teams to better track what is being done, when the task was completed, and how many parts/products were needed to perform the work. Documenting repeatable practices from those who have been at the company for a while will allow new employees to more quickly be guided into the maintenance processes. Lastly, REDLIST will assist in calculating maintenance labor time vs production downtime for each line.
By documenting current routes, processes, and managing inventory all within REDLIST this maintenance team will avoid costly production loss caused by the transition between one generation to the next. Once the transference of knowledge is completed, current workflows, based on quantifiable data, will be better understood resulting in justifiable improvements being made.
