Have you set cleanliness targets? Are you sampling your lubricants to determine the water amount and removing any water as soon as possible?

Leaders must continuously provide their team with the necessary tools and support to improve their program, while those who are performing the tasks must use what they have learned to effectively increase equipment reliability. Has the window closed on your program? Have you maximized your staff's education and enthusiasm?
