    Autonomous Maintenance Steps (1-3) – A Skill Development Program

    A Virtual Consultant-Led Training/Coaching Intervention supported by Immediate Application

    Autonomous Maintenance is a first step in the transition from a reactive to a proactive maintenance strategy. Autonomous Maintenance (AM) focuses on preventing equipment deterioration by first restoring equipment to ‘like-new status’ and then establishing basic conditions to keep it that way. A well-established AM process can eliminate the causes of 40-60% of your unplanned downtime while improving safety, increasing capacity, raising quality and delivery levels, and lowering overall costs – all to better serve your customers.

    The key to developing an effective AM capability is understanding how the social and technical elements work together to build sustainable equipment and process reliability. AM involves operations, maintenance, engineering, and quality working together and supported by leadership at all levels.
