MaxGrip started the project with an assessment, the Asset Improvement Mapping (AIM). As part of the AIM, they interviewed 35 stakeholders across the organization and performed a remote walkdown through a plant of Victrex. With all the gathered information, MaxGrip created an Asset Improvement Map and presented its recommendations to key stakeholders and the COO of the company.
The next step was an Asset Improvement Deployment (AID). This entails the further detailing of an improvement roadmap, the planning and deliverables. Victrex created the AID program together with MaxGrip. The deployment was split up in seven different workstreams.
(Expected) results are:
- Sustainable performance improvement which will result in a projected multi-million pounds cost savings;
- The project (the Asset Improvement Mapping and following deployment) serve as a blueprint for global scale-up;
- Long-term benefits include increased Overall Equipment Effectiveness, Reduced Total Cost of Ownership and much more.
More results are outlined in the downloadable case study.
