Maintenance North West
November 30th 2010
Chancellors Conference Centre, University of Manchester
13.30 – 17.00
The business simulation game is aimed at anyone with direct or indirect responsibility for plant, maintenance and production and attendees learn about the benefits of implementing a Value Driven Maintenance strategy (VDM) during the interactive workshop.
Part of the workshop will involve participants working in teams, using a simulated lean environment, in a quest to reduce waste and create added value. Teams compete against each other and the effects of each team’s decisions will be measured against 10 KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators) and benchmarked after each playing round. The team that creates the most economic value will receive the MBE Award.
Participants at the workshop will learn how to create maximum value from maintenance by creating a VDM-based business case for maintenance and simulating real value creation in realistic conditions. They will also be taught how to analyse KPI benchmarking reports and to gain an understanding of which variables can be changed over time and what effect this has on the KPI score.
The half day session, which costs just £49 plus VAT, is a highly valuable exercise and organisations around the world are gaining huge benefit from taking part in the Maintenance Business Experience as their results are compared with other teams from different regions and they network with their peers via the MBE group on LinkedIn.
Mick Saltzer, Managing Consultant from Mainnovation said of the MBE, “Maintenance people from large companies such as Volvo and Corus have taken part in the MBE and found that it gave them the tools to look at their maintenance organisations in a new way.”
