Early Equipment Management (EEM) is a structured process focusing on reducing the complexity associated with the real-time operation and maintenance of equipment. EEM brings the principles of Lean to the design and manufacture of equipment.
The Early Equipment Management strategy consists of three elements:
- Design for Quality Assurance,
- Design for Maintainability,
- Life Cycle Costing.
Learn how to develop a powerful EEM strategy ideal for your specific production environment.
Facilitated coaching sessions:
Working with a team of engineers and maintenance personnel, we will develop an EEM strategy for your production environment which will result in equipment that is easy to operate, easy to maintain, and “right-sized” to aid in establishing flow and increasing your value-add per square foot.
- Overview: classroom learning
- Facilitated Coaching/Consulting: implementation in your environment
