Annual Pulp and Paper Reliability and Maintenance Conference
October 10-14, 2005, Atlanta, GA.
Improved Production Reliability has become one of the most
important factors in competition. Improving Reliability is
a joint challenge for operations and maintenance professionals.
Over the years we have seen a steady increased participation
of teams representing operations and maintenance. More and
more mills include operators in basic maintenance work and
have seen improved Production Reliability and lower costs
as a result.
If successfully implemented, better reliability and maintenance
practices can increase quality production throughput 2 –
10 % and reduce maintenance and operations costs by 10 –
To successfully implement sustainable improvements, skilled
people must work in an efficient work system. In the next
five years many pulp and paper mills will loose over 50% of
its skilled employees and only 14% of mills have professional
training programs in place. Only 4% of mills reported that
they can easily find skilled people. That is a challenge this
year’s conference will address.
Many mill professionals will present case studies on how
they improved performance through implementation of better
work practices, what obstacles they had to overcome and what
results they achieved.
How to sell reliability and maintenance improvements to
top management will be the focus of my seminar this year.
