A major product line was being relocated from Barrington, NJ to the Sparta, TN location. The client wanted to ensure minimal equipment downtime due to this product being the highest profit producer within the entire corporation. Reliability Centered Maintenance.
Paradigm implemented Equipment Downtime Reduction Management (EDRM) across the entire line, as well as trained in-house personnel on ownership of the concept. This new concept assisted the client in fully implementing all aspects of EDRM, rendering a SPC directed preventive and predictive maintenance system, semi-automated work order management system, spare parts management, visual maintenance applications, and “MacGyver” maintenance techniques taught to all personnel. Overall, this increased OEE by 40% over the first year of operation. This performance assisted in the corporate managerial decision to move another product line from the Tupelo, MS plant to the Sparta, TN plant. Reliability Centered Maintenance.
