- Maintenance Management Expertise
Changing factory maintenance performance and attitude requires a new leadership approach to the maintenance function. ATS' maintenance management expertise is changing the way maintenance is performed in a manufacturing plant. Our maintenance management expertise helps you reduce reactive maintenance and apply a proactive planned approach. ATS instills a culture of continuous improvement and Service/Quality into all of our factory maintenance programs. With this focus, we identify opportunities to improve business processes and create loyalty and value for our customers.
- Maintenance Spare Parts and MRO
Managing a successful maintenance program requires you to have maintenance spare parts and MRO supplies immediately available. Having the right part at the right time is critical to operating your plant successfully. ATS takes full responsibility for your entire maintenance spare parts and MRO supplies function, including purchasing and managing the inventory. This means that your plant manager no longer has to worry about which part to buy, where to buy it and how to obtain the best price in the marketplace. ATS does it all for you.
- Trained Maintenance Personnel
Our trained maintenance technicians are prepared to address even the most complex issues that can arise in a manufacturing environment. ATS' trained maintenance personnel complete both classroom and on-the-job training to master everything from computer hardware and software skills, to effective communication, Service/Quality and leadership skills.
And as a serious lack of skilled labor is anticipated to grow by 14 million by 2015, ATS is proactively taking steps to provide a steady stream of skilled maintenance technicians to our workforce of maintenance personnel. Several ATS initiatives include incumbent workforce training and the Multi-Skilled Technical Career Program that teaches technical skills to young, highly motivated students.
- Performance Metrics
ATS carefully tracks and uses performance measurements in order to continuously improve in key areas, including operating cost savings, repair time, machine downtime hours and compliance to preventive maintenance schedules. Each month, we'll report performance using our unique four-up charts that illustrate trends, highlight the trend drivers, list action items for addressing key issues and warn of potential barriers to implementing action items. ATS' performance measurements will assure that you achieve the maintenance results you expect.
Some of ATS' performance measurements include:
- Maintenance costs as a percentage of replacement asset value
- Asset utilization
- Unplanned downtime due to maintenance
- Proactive versus reactive work
- Cost of poor quality
- Overtime hours as a percentage of total hours worked
- Maintenance costs per production unit
Aligning maintenance strategies with production business goals through certain performance measurements outlines the effectiveness of maintenance activities on operations. ATS' performance measurements can be used as tools to employ corrective action and drive root cause analysis to better obtain the maintenance results desired.
