Operator Rounds in Maintenance Operations

Regularly inspecting work areas and equipment is critical for maintaining a safe and efficient manufacturing operation. Operator rounds provide the perfect solution for effective upkeep.

During rounds, workers inspect and monitor the condition and performance of assets and machinery. The details of each check are recorded on a shift log.

Unfortunately, these shift logs aren’t always updated. Failing to notify teams of any machine deficiencies can lead to equipment failure overtime — and even disrupt production processes.
