- Analyse cost drivers & technical performance killers:
Setting up and maintaining an overview of the technical performance of his dedicated area. Next analysing the maintenance spent and localise the top 10 equipment costs. Initiating from these overviews actions to improve reliability of the equipment and simultaneously reducing costs at the long run.
- Material responsible:
To optimise the amount of working capital, the material should be ranked according criticality and hereafter decisions about stock/non-stock have to be made.
