Put Some Teeth in Your OAC...OMAR

Most Lean Functions seem to have one way of accomplishing the task. If you take that approach with OAC you could be purchasing equipment that you don't need. Realizing the typical OAC process wouldn't work for our facility, deep cleaning would just be another sanitation task, we needed more. My process asks how do we bring the packaging equipment to the condition of a brand new line The speeds, The quality and the appearance. When you put together a Team of Operators, Line workers and Maintenance, and in just one week make an entire packaging line purr like it was brand new. It feels great looks great and the employees have a sense of pride when they hear everyone say: Wow, look what you guys did! This line hasn't run this good in 10 years.  I invite you to try Operator, Maintenance Asset Rejuvenation in your facility.
