Rawlplug shares knowledge and best practices in production planning and optimisation
On 29-30 October 2014, Rawlplug shared knowledge and best practices in production planning and optimisation at the third edition of the Autumn School of Maintenance of Production Operations, in Kraków.
Maintenance fair and Rawlplug’s role in training the industry’s future leaders
The training session was organised alongside the MAINTENANCE fair, which was held at the EXPO Kraków conference and event centre. MAINTENANCE is an event organised to help manufacturers learn more about how to plan, optimise and ensure continuity of production operations.
The training session was led by experienced managers and specialists in the field of production operations and the course was developed so that professionals operating in this domain could benefit from best practices, find out about key trends and developments in the sector, and learn about real-life examples from the field.
Rawlplug was responsible for leading part of the training and was joined by representatives from other leading brands, including Volvo, Kaizen Institute, Michelin and Grupa Żywiec (a leading Polish brewer). A total of 120 professionals from the sector attended the training.
Rawlplug showcases approach to estimating the cost of maintaining technical infrastructure
Rawlplug’s participation in the Autumn School of Maintenance of Production Operations was inspired by our Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategies. Having a wealth of experience and being recognised as a market leader, Rawlplug is keen to share its best practices with other companies and individuals active in production. In doing so, we aspire to help support the overall advance of the production sector and help other companies to adopt sustainable business practices and operations.
At the October edition of the Autumn School of Maintenance of Production Operations, our focus was on demonstrating Rawlplug’s proprietary approach to estimating the cost of maintaining technical infrastructure, which uses the Total Production Maintenance (TPM) tool. The approach was commended by many of the attendees and evaluated as straight forward and robust. What’s more, elements of Rawlplug’s presentation were cited by other presenters, including the representative from Michelin.
Opportunity to contribute a great honour and testament to Rawlplug’s CSR strategy
Marcin Walczak, Rawlplug’s Manager of Investment Projects felt the invitation to participate was testament to Rawlplug’s standing in the manufacturing sector and that the event represented a great opportunity to promote and embody our Corporate Social Responsibility principles.
“To be invited to share our best practices in production continuity represents a real mark of achievement and distinction for Rawlplug as a company. Inspired by our Sustainability and Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, it’s incredibly rewarding to be able to share our best practices with other companies and aspiring professionals in the industry. Our hope is that, by helping other companies to better understand the importance of production continuity and the associated costs and planning, we will be able to help other industries and companies become more sustainable.”
