The expression, “Change is the only constant” is no longer hard to comprehend. Every business now recognizes the importance of adaptability and innovation. What may be overlooked, however, is a full examination of how a business’ operations are equipped to reliably and competitively deliver quality products in the midst of changing market drivers.

Laszeray Technology is conducting precisely this examination. According to Jeff Crouse, Laszeray’s newest employee and Operations Manager, “we are going to step beyond simple, preventative maintenance and dive into a more predictive behavior.” Specifically, Laszeray is going to implement Total Productive Manufacturing (TPM) principles that will “improve part quality, optimize life cycle costs, and eliminate waste.”

Crouse adds, “TPM relies upon teamwork, LEAN Principles, and a company-wide commitment to make the daily work environment and a safer, more attractive work place. TPM is not about maintenance, it’s about productivity through comprehensive business systems and data.”

With TPM, Laszeray will reduce costs by increasing the life of its assets, by eliminating the need for rework, by reducing costs associated with replacement parts, and by preventing disruptions. It is not easily accomplished. Successful implementation requires Kaizen events, vigilant observation, meticulous data collection, and 5S behavior.

The TPM process has five stages:

  1. Initial Checking: Cross-functional teams observe and collect data
  2. Root cause analysis: Determine source of leaks, spills, etc.
  3. Inspection: Develop methods to inspect difficult areas, clearly mark work areas
  4. Standardization: Define precise methods for inspection and visual observation of conformance to instructions
  5. Implementation: Create and manage Standard Operating Procedures

When TPM works, all team members adhere to a system that incorporates inspection, participation, ownership and data collection. The results are measureable. They include cost savings, increased output, improved quality, reduced capital expenditures, and lower maintenance inventories.

As the process gets underway, Crouse is optimistic that it will lead to additional improvements that include sophisticated analytics. “We are committed to staying on the forefront of technology and we also know that data drives innovation. I am excited about growing into Predictive Maintenance technologies that include sensors and constant equipment surveillance.”

“While technology drives improvement our people make it a reality. At Laszeray, our people use the systems to drive innovation, continuous improvement, and manufacturing excellence.”

In the IT industry there is a lot of vocalization regarding vce files the cost of IT training and continuing education pertaining to certifications. Some employers worry that additional training and certification will lead employees to seek new jobs and employees often wonder if the cost of these certifications are a worthwhile investment. The combination sy0-401 vce of misunderstood metrics and cost of training create a weird dynamic that sy0-401 dump cause both employees and employers to weigh the added value of these certifications.
The CompTIA A+ Certification is a good example CA1 001 dump illustrating this point. After January 1, 2011 CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+ and CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) certifications became valid for three years from the date of certification instead of life. The exam 220-901 dumps costs alone add up which isn’t so bad if you’re earning n10-006 vce higher wages because of the certifications. If you require additional training on top of that, well, now you’re looking at potentially thousands every three years. Both companies and individuals n10-006 comptia network certification start to wonder if the benefit pays off.
For IT professionals obtaining certification security+ vce is generally driven by the desire for a higher salary. Let’s be real, who doesn’t want to earn more?
Well, here are some interesting facts that help put things in perspective…
The CompTIA A+ Certification has been the industry standard for measuring the knowledge cas-002 vce of an IT tech’s abilities in software and hardware. IT technicians who have certifications lx0-103 vce typically receive higher salaries with the majority achieving continued career advancement.
CompTIA Certification holders network+ braindump n10-006 as a rule have:
More career options
Obtain Higher Salaries
On average, certified professionals vce security+ make 5-15% than their non certified peers.
Are a perceived asset by employers
Instill confidence in employers
On the flip side, for many companies comptia network+ n10-006 vce IT certifications have been and still remain the standard by which they measure knowledge. Whether this is right, wrong, good or bad many companies actually require certifications for consideration. Unfortunately, IT training and certifications comptia exam are mis-understood by employers creating skewed bench marks which in turn devalue certifications.
CompTIA released a statement on Wednesday, April 11 2012 addressing the importance of educating 4itexam the employer to understand the pcnse7 dumps value of IT training and the benefit of hiring a skilled worker who would provide added value to the corporation. “We haven’t necessarily sold this to the employing world, that if they get a skilled person, it’s much better csqa for them long-term,” Erdle said. “And certification is a good metric of that.”
It is clear that IT certifications such as the CompTIA A+ Certification is an added benefit to any professional’s career. Perhaps, as CompTIA suggests, educating the employer to better understand the value of training will help more accurately assess the true value of the certification.
