this is my first blog entry since Jan. to be honest it's because i still not get use to with writing anything about my reflection and i could say that i'm a lazy guy. Anyway, i have to do it for the marks.
today is almost the last day before we have presentation in KBAM module. it seems to be the most important one and also it is the last presentation of MBE class. As always, i'm so exhausted again and again. this week and also last week, i've spent most of my time on mini-project, do research on maintenance topic. The familiar words like PM, PdM, TPM, reliability which i always heard when i worked come to me again. i've a little knowledge about it before when i was trainned in maintenance department for a short period. at that time i totally think that TPM is suck bcos everyone did it when the supervisor was coming to evaluate the performance. it didnt work at all. currently, i think the reason was company didnt provide appropriate knowledge or inadequate knowledge for employees.
Moreover, at that moment, my previous company had very high employment turnover. it was both internal turnover and external turnover. at that time, the company had the new plants which was such a huge investment and people who have experience were moved to that new plant. and some left the company with any reason. the result is knowledge of those experience employees has gone with them. Therefore, company try to implement KM to keep that knowledge from leaking out the company. but the problem was people tend to do their routine job rather than KM bcos various reason such as they didnt see any benefit to themself, the work load, etc. Moreover, i personally think that company should spend more effort or money on KM thing. bcos it was lack of promotion and providing knowledge to shop floor level or even the higher level. At the moment, i asked my friends who are working there about the progress of KM and the answer was it remains the same, nothing effective. So. i think the management level should do something that help success in implementing KM. i think it should be the time for leader to play the most important role and drive successful KM implementation
