The LPO model is designed as a comprehensive approach for solving chronic and persistent reliability issues with a specific manufacturing line. These common reliability issues include production losses due to unplanned downtime, ineffective maintenance practices, absence of standardized processes, quality-related issues, and loss time due to material flow design.
Organizations using this targeted approach have increased OEE by an average of five percentage points. The LPO process includes components of Life Cycle Engineering’s proprietary Risk-based Asset Management Implementation Model and Lean Implementation Model, along with Prosci’s change management methodology, to address human factors, culture, and process and equipment limitations that adversely impact the value stream.
