Autonomous Maintenance Program

Autonomous maintenance is a method in manufacturing that places importance on machine operators completing basic maintenance tasks. Autonomous maintenance programs involve providing them with up-to-date digital work procedures to keep equipment operating in like-new condition.

When operators perform minor maintenance tasks like lubrication, bolt tightening, cleaning, safety checks and inspections, they become the first line of defense against machine malfunctions that can hurt your productivity. That’s why it’s crucial to implement a successful autonomous maintenance program.

The first step is to train machine operators to understand the functions and components of machines so they can detect abnormalities and resolve them before they lead to quality issues.

If you want to lower maintenance costs and improve production through an autonomous maintenance program in your business, read on as we explain the process in the following sections:
