Discipline and KPIs important
When an organisation is responsible for printing these large numbers of papers each day, it is crucial that production is uninterrupted as much as possible. This requires the best maintenance all these assets can get. Ultimo is used to plan sufficient preventive maintenance to minimise the number of failures. Ultimo Maintenance Management is used by the technical service of Coldset. The way work is structured has improved considerably since Ultimo was taken into use. Reports show the key performance indicators and this information is used all the time for improvements.
