We are facing an abundance of Industry 4.0 solutions and initiatives. This includes more specifically Industry 4.0 solutions. All of those solutions promise magic, but there is a big gap between what a solution can do versus how an organization can benefit. Most initiatives end with a Proof of Concept. MaxGrip will help you to overcome that barrier because we know how to truly embed a change and help your organization to embrace the new way of working into daily practice, achieving tangible benefits.

SUCCESS STORY

Condition Based Maintenance for the tram network of the City of Amsterdam

For their Tram division, the City of Amsterdam wanted to gain better insights in the condition of the infrastructure assets through maintenance strategies and digitalization. This enables effective decision-making and results in a future-proof, safe and efficient tram network.

MaxGrip collaborated with them to translate the strategic policy into a future-proof asset management approach and to implement Condition Based Maintenance. This included the implementation of dashboards with real-time insights into asset health and performance.

The implementation of CBM yielded an 20% cost reduction in the first year and generated a high internal adoption rate on all organizational levels.

Change Management: Internal Buy-In

Achieving internal adoption by key stakeholders such as corporate leaders, asset managers and technical staff is an important part of sustainable success. Digitalization requires an enormous change for people, it is therefore essential to offer the right guidance and emphasize what the employee gets out of it. It is not about what your staff should do, but to show them why they should do it and how it contributes to success. MaxGrip has a lot of experience with guiding change programs within multinational organizations. We understand how internal communications (sharing success) can build bridges, how coaching and mentoring will improve employee satisfaction and sustain internal buy in.
