Pit Stop Training Progress Follow-up

One or two days

Progress on the targeted equipment after the Pit Stop session can take one of two distinct tracks: Sustainability or a steep decline into "business as usual." Sustainability depends on maintaining the momentum started in the Pit Stop Training Session and getting the remaining stakeholders involved in the improvements. Our Pit Stop Training Progress Follow-up Session includes: 

  • Review of the targeted equipment "business case" and LEM/TPM purposes/expectations
  • Review of TPM Pillars, TPM Action Planning Mode, and Critical Success Factors
  • Review the Action Register from the initial Pit Stop session (DIN-30-60-90 day plan)
  • Review of the Pit Stop activities on the targeted equipment: Use specific examples of improvements and ideas (photos, checklists, PM lists, operator checks, procedures, etc.) in the areas of each TPM pillar emphasizing "sustainability" and buy-in, or full participation.
  • A hands-on walkthrough of the targeted equipment with Problem Tags to give hands-on exposure to the equipment. Problem Tags, and the tagging/problem identification process.
  • Discuss benefits, barriers, and improvement opportunities
  • Follow-up action planning

How often? We recommend Pit Stop Training Progress Follow-up Sessions quarterly (3 months).
