Every maintenance organisation needs to be measured. However there is no one-size fits all method of measuring the health of your organisation.
Using well-thought out and carefully selected metrics, Anheuser-Busch moved from being an average maintenance organisation to world class across twelve facilities. The efficiencies gained in this effort enabled them to reduce parts costs by over 20% and labour costs by over 10%. This was accomplished by auditing their facilities on a regular basis and developing action plans after each audit for reaching the next level. They also had buy-in from production which helped stress the importance.
