The Journey into Autonomous Maintenance

My next Lean undertaking will be converting our current Maintenance program from hour based to autonomous. This will take months to put together by myself and better than a year to get fully implemented. I will do my best keeping everything documented on our journey. If you are unfamiliar with autonomous maintenance the definition is: The step-by-step activities when searching for the optimal conditions  and production ( an orderly floor) by way of the establishment of basic equipment conditions (cleaning, lubrication, and tightening), and, as a result, the arrival at autonomous supervision (operators’ self control). The people that touch the equipment, also maintain the machine.
