people always said developing innovation is a key sucess factor for a company.
because the advanced techonology can help the company to achieve sucess.
however, during the process of writing this PMA, i found develoing the techonogy so often is not always a good thing.
Take Waverider as a example.
it is a small manufacturing company. it has not enough moeny to support the high investment on the techonogy development and R&D department. in addition, at the current stage, it's employees even are not familiar with the current machine. If they use more advanced machine, the employees can not use it well.
Therefore, the most important thing for Waveriders now is not changing. the production process shoud be improved.
the quality of the products can be improved by moniterating the production process and training the empoyees to use the current machine more efficient.
as the consequence, the qulity of the products improved and the cost also decreased.
in my opinion, this PMA is not a easy one.
during the process of writing, the first problem i met is that "choose which concept of asset management to help the Waveriders to achieve sucess".
different concept can solve different problems, for example resources utilization can reduce the inventory of the company and health and safety management can sure the reliability and the safety of the products.
Therefore, before i decided the concept i used, i did a swot analysis on the Waveriders current situation to show the current problems faced by Waveriders.
as far as i considered, the concept i choose should develop the weakness of Waveriders and bring more oppotunities to the company.
Fiannly, i decided to suggest the Waveriders to use maintenance as a tool to help them to achieve suecess.
