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.
