Efficient Plant: PM Accelerates Bedding Mfg Efficiency

Uptime tracking provides increased operational availability and production rates for comfort-tech company.

The first phase of the Purple L2L project focused on providing real-time data to improve maintenance and reliability processes in the company’s Grantsville, UT, plant. L2L’s web-based software allowed the maintenance team to quickly launch the planning and scheduling of preventive-maintenance functions. The LES Maintenance suite provided real-time performance data that was used to spot and respond to reactive issues.

LES Maintenance usage results included:

• development of an asset-numbering protocol for all the equipment in the facility
• labeling each machine or asset within the plant
incorporating all facility assets into the system, including items such as urinals and fire extinguishers
sourcing, purchasing, and assigning laptops for 14 members of the Purple maintenance staff so they could easily use the L2L Maintenance module
providing six- to seven-day training for the maintenance and production staff on use of L2L software (training was timed during shifts and the plant was not shut down during training)
capturing data immediately upon completion of an activity
creating and executing preventive-maintenance tasks, starting with critical equipment
identifying and repairing any equipment problems
using collected data to drive continuous cycles of improvement.
