Maintenance Personnel Vs. Unplanned Downtime
Designated Maintenance Personnel
If you are focused on embracing a maintenance focused culture, it is important that you have designated employee(s) that have been trained on how to maintain and protect your machines.
Understand the skill sets that are needed to maintain your machines and find the right person for the job. The skill sets of a programmer is vastly different than the skill set of the maintenance employee.
