WE HELP FOOD PRODUCTION COMPANIES CREATE A WORLD CLASS FACTORY THROUGH WORLD CLASS MAINTENANCE
A guide for overtasked food production maintenance teams showing them how to get more maintenance work done!!
WORLD CLASS FACTORY, led by Ed Surber, is a community and a set of tools and resources for food production companies.
If you're looking to transform your factory from unpredictable and underperforming to world class status, then you've come to the right place!
Most food companies struggle to hit "world class" levels because their machinery & equipment assets are not performing at the level they should.
Our approach is to address the reliability of your machinery and equipment assets before moving on to the rest of the factory.
Every single obstacle standing in the way of your factory achieving “world class” levels, points to either a lack of effective
Problem-Solving, little to no Standard Work, or poor Performance Management (or all of them). All our material is
designed to address these three root causes, using simple, yet cutting-edge proprietary strategies and tools.
We focus on Maintenance & Reliability systems and processes as the primary vehicle to becoming "world class" because, just like our human resources, our machinery and equipment must be cared for and tended to in order to perform flawlessly and at peak levels.
We define "world class" as being the best in all categories of your food production operation.
