9780071789943: Lean Maintenance Repair and Overhaul

BOOST PROFITS AND REDUCE COSTS BY EFFICIENTLY DELIVERING SUPERIOR MRO SERVICES

Lean Maintenance Repair and Overhaul describes how MRO organizations can achieve significant improvement in financial performance by applying the Theory of Constraints (TOC) to guide the implementation of Lean manufacturing tools. This Lean/TOC approach facilitates a growth strategy by providing customer value, such as faster turnaround times, that the competition cannot match. Lean/TOC creates the capacity for this growth by eliminating waste.

This practical guide shows how Lean/TOC also provides the improvement strategy for dealing with the variation that distinguishes MRO from high-volume, repetitive manufacturing. The methodology expands the improvement efforts beyond the manufacturing floor to make the organizational changes needed to facilitate growth and to empower the workforce to be enthusiastic participants in the improvement processes. You will learn how these concepts have been applied to MRO organizations in the commercial and defense sectors.

COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE INCLUDES:

  • The MRO business opportunity
  • The goal of Lean and how Lean for MRO is different
  • Achieving sustained growth in the MRO business
  • Managing the MRO process
  • Enabling flow in an MRO environment
  • The Lean MRO toolkit
  • Managing the back-shops
  • Creating a visual culture for the implementation of Lean/TOC

Product Description:

Proven strategies for realizing quantum leaps in MRO productivity improvements and profits

Lean Maintenance Repair and Overhaul presents the key concepts and principles for managing MRO practices using cutting-edge process improvement techniques. The book stresses systems thinking, and uniquely integrates two management philosophies: Theory of Constraints (TOC) and Lean, illustrating how they complement and reinforce each other to leverage the MRO activity and therefore improve the organization’s bottom line. You’ll learn how to apply basic principles from TOC to significantly increase the profitability of your organization.

Lean Maintenance Repair and Overhaul reveals how to:

  • Develop win-win solutions that benefit the organization and its supply chain partners
  • Implement Lean thinking in conjunction with throughput accounting to offer better value to customers at the right price
  • Eliminate waste from the organization’s value stream
  • Improve quality and create better flow in the MRO process
