Process industries have a particularly urgent need for collaborative equipment management systems, but until now have lacked for programs directed toward their specific needs. TPM in Process lndustries brings together top consultants from the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance to modify the original TPM Development Program. In this volume, they demonstrate how to analyze process environments and equipment issues including process loss structure and calculation, autonomous maintenance, equipment and process improvement, and quality maintenance. For all organizations managing large equipment, facing low operator/machine ratios, or implementing extensive improvement, this text is an invaluable resource.

Die Referenz zum Verständnis der Konzepte und Werkzeuge von Lean Six Sigma: Six Sigma ist ein statistisches Qualitätsziel und zugleich ein Instrument des Qualitätsmanagements. Ausgangspunkt dieser auf Effizienz und Qualität ausgerichteten Methode ist die Zieldefinition. Danach wird die Fehlerabweichung von diesem Idealziel ermittelt. Ihr Kernelement ist also die Beschreibung, Messung, Analyse, Verbesserung und Überwachung von Geschäftsprozessen unter anderem mit statistischen Mitteln. Dabei orientieren sich die Ziele an Prozesskennzahlen eines Unternehmens und an den Kundenbedürfnissen. In diesem Buch werden alle wichtigen Werkzeuge zur Anwendung von Lean Six Sigma vorgestellt und systematisch auf ihre Einsatzgebiete hin eingeordnet. Detaillierte Erläuterungen helfen zu verstehen, welches Werkzeug wann, wie und warum einzusetzen ist. Aus dem Inhalt: - Voice of the Customer - Wertstromanalyse und Prozessflussdiagramme - Datenerhebung und Abweichungsanalysen - Fehlerursachen identifizieren und verifizieren - Minderung der Durchlaufzeiten und der nicht-wertschöpfenden Kosten - Komplexität und Komplexitätsanalyse - Auswahl und Pilotierung von Lösungen Michael L. George ist Chairman der George Group, der weltweit führenden Six-Sigma-Beratung. David Rowlands ist Vice President für Six Sigma bei der North American Solution Group, einer Division von Xerox. Marc Pice und John Maxey sind Mitarbeiter der George Group. Die Übersetzung dieses Buchs wurde vom Six-Sigma-Experten Dirk Dose, Partner bei der PPI AG (www.sixsigma.de), und seinem Team vorgenommen. Er verfügt über umfangreiche Beratungspraxis mit Prozessoptimierungsprojekten, bei denen Six Sigma zur Verbesserung von Geschäftsprozessen eingesetzt wurde. Lean Six Sigma ist eine der führenden Techniken zur Maximierung der Prozesseffizienz und zur Steuerung jedes Schritts eines Geschäftsprozesses. Mit dem Lean Six Sigma Toolbook werden Sie entdecken, wie Sie Ihr Unternehmen auf ein neues Niveau der Wettbewerbsfähigkeit heben können.

Demonstrating the latest research and analysis in the area of through-life engineering services (TES), this book utilizes case studies and expert analysis from an international array of practitioners and researchers – who together represent multiple manufacturing sectors: aerospace, railway and automotive – to maximize reader insights into the field of through-life engineering services. As part of the EPSRC Centre in Through-life Engineering Services program to support the academic and industrial community, this book presents an overview of non-destructive testing techniques and applications and provides the reader with the information needed to assess degradation and possible automation of through-life engineering service activities . The latest developments in maintenance-repair-overhaul (MRO) are presented with emphasis on cleaning technologies, repair and overhaul approaches and planning and digital assistance. The impact of these technologies on sustainable enterprises is also analyzed. This book will help to support the existing TES community and will provide future studies with a strong base from which to analyze and apply techn9olgical trends to real world examples.
