We would like to congratulate Productivity Inc. client Johnson Controls Power Solutions, Saint Joseph Distribution Center in Saint Joseph, Missouri on being named an Industry Week Best Plant finalist for 2018…
We had the pleasure of working with and getting to know the people at the St. Joe facility dating back to Mid 2015 when we launched a collaborative TPM effort at the facility. In monthly sessions over the course of the next 2 years, we coached and mentored site staff and leaders in the implementation of various TPM Pillars on two pilot lines.
Our efforts focused on minimizing/eliminating unplanned breakdowns and steadily increasing proactive maintenance activities. During this time, we bore witness to a change in the culture that encompassed operators, maintenance technicians, and supervisors as they learned to take ownership of their areas and equipment through application of TPM.
At the end of the pilot implementation, the goals set for the pilot lines were achieved and the equipment OEE and physical appearance of the pilot areas were significantly improved.
We wish them continued success with their improvement initiatives and in the Industry Week Best Plant process.
