Before you begin to think that I’m going to discuss the next silver bullet solution to developing a smarter workforce, let me say in advance, that is not my intent.
However, I will share some of my tested and proven experiences while working in maintenance and operations for the past 40 years. I’ve concluded that while we all love to talk about the latest technology solutions, work and asset management strategies, or complex condition-based maintenance implementations, we often leave the greatest potential benefits unrealized. “Why,” you might ask? Because they are simple and not as exciting and most of us would prefer to talk about the latest solutions that are making headlines. That’s not to say that implementing simple solutions is easy. As a matter of fact, it’s sometimes difficult to achieve the results of simple solutions.
