    This review is from: Lean Maintenance: Reduce Costs, Improve Quality, and Increase Market Share (Life Cycle Engineering Series) (Hardcover)

    Provides the insight that as an organization leans its manufacturing processes, it must also address machinery maintenance processes or reliability suffers. It gives a good background on Lean Manufacturing and rationale for using a lean approach on maintenance processes, along with an excellent “how to” guide for implementing.

    This book is packed with common sense approaches to improving maintenance programs and enabling maintenance support of traditional operations lean programs. After reading this book, I had a better idea how I could implement maintenance department practices to support the plant operational excellence programs. I found this book important enough to purchase one for each of my supervisors and am making it required reading for this year. I highly recommend this book if for no other reason than for reference. It is a must-have in today’s production environment.
