The Situation

Quick-hits were requested by the end of the following fiscal year with limited and selective capital expenditure. Plant A: investments had been made to increase capacity significantly, but average time between failure was low. Plant B: with a new steel plant, the bottleneck was the hot rolling mill. The objective was to increase throughput by 50%.

The Solution

The client asked a WIL Group member to put in place a team of experts (MTBF, TPM, maintenance and metallurgy), on half time basis for 18 months. Coordination was handled by the WIL Group Partner in India.

The Result

An initial global audit to set up confidence with the owner : (three managers involved)

Plant A : a real success through :

Cost-loss matrix – TPM 1 and focus on BFTM

Plant B : quick results achieved by focusing on a few key performance issues – the second phase is on-going with selective capital expenditure.
