Life Cycle Engineering Success Stories
The University of Wisconsin Partners with the Life Cycle Institute to Design and Deliver a Predictive Maintenance Course
The University of Wisconsin partnered with the Life Cycle Institute to design and deliver a two day Predictive Maintenance course for their Department of Engineering Professional Development Program.
Reliability Excellence transformed this plant into to a proactive culture, with a great sense of pride and ownership in plant assets and operation.
Reliability Excellence processes, in conjunction with implementing an EAM system and Lean manufacturing principles, have resulted in tangible results.
Employing Materials Management Best Practices to Drive Down Costs and Improve Support for Operations
With help from Life Cycle Engineering, this large agribusiness company implemented a Best Practice storeroom operation that has yielded improved efficiency and significant cost savings.
Facing increasing competition from overseas producers, this steel company needed to operate more efficiently to remain competitive. Implementing Reliability Excellence helped them improve OEE, achieve asset design capacity, optimize material management and eliminate recurring asset failures.
Aluminum Smelter Improves Asset Reliability and Reinvigorates Operations with Reliability Excellence
The challenges were common to many manufacturing operations: poor asset reliability resulted in a high percentage of breakdowns, reactive maintenance, and routine production overtime to reach daily production goals. The hard work – and teamwork – required to move from a reactive to proactive environment is paying off with a bright future.
Life Cycle Engineering Helps Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Philadelphia Meet Numerous Challenges
Guam-based USS EMORY S. LAND (AS-39) and USS FRANK CABLE (AS-40), the Navy’s only submarine tenders, provide maintenance services to every U.S. submarine deployed west of the international dateline. These tenders are supported by a team of LCE personnel. Leveraging decades of experience, LCE SEA Coaches provide over-the-shoulder, deckplate-level training and mentoring to aspiring young maintenance personnel, making the sailors more efficient and proficient in all aspects of submarine repair. LCE’s Planning Support personnel instill research methodologies and technical reference utilization skills needed to transform ordinary sailors into highly skilled Maintenance Planners.
LCE helps the Puget Sound and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facilities provide the Fleet with quality, timely and cost-efficient maintenance, modernization, and technical and logistics support.
Life Cycle Engineering Partners with Naval Sea Systems Command to Execute a Strong Financial Improvement Plan
LCE is helping the Department of the Navy to achieve its goal to produce financial information with greater accuracy, reliability and accessibility.
LCE’s breadth of service and integrated systems approach was critical in helping this Shipyard reestablish a high-functioning equipment maintenance program.
