Poka-yoke

Poka-yoke is a Japanese term that means "mistake-proofing" or "inadvertent error prevention". Its purpose is to eliminate product defects by preventing, correcting, or drawing attention to human errors as they occur.


Predictive Maintenance

Predictive maintenance is a condition-based approach to maintenance. Rather than servicing assets on a fixed schedule, you evaluate the condition of components to determine whether they need to be serviced. It should be combined with preventive maintenance for the best results. Examples of predictive maintenance include oil analysis, thermal analysis, and vibration analysis.


Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance is maintenance that takes place before something breaks down. It is a time-based or meter count-based approach that is carried out at predetermined intervals to reduce failure risk or performance degradation of assets. The aim of preventive maintenance is to minimize unplanned downtime and reduce repair costs. Regularly performed standard repair, replacement, inspection, cleaning and lubrication.


Primary failure

A failure of an item not caused either directly or indirectly by a failure or a fault of another item.


Proactive Maintenance

Proactive Maintenance is the integration of RCA analysis, measurement results of the data derived from Predictive and Preventive maintenance.


Problem solving

Problem solving consists of using generic or ad hoc methods in an orderly manner to find solutions to problems. Some of the problem-solving techniques developed and used in philosophy, artificial intelligence, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or medicine are related to mental problem-solving techniques studied in psychology.


Process mapping

Process mapping is used to visually demonstrate all the steps and decisions in a particular process. A process map or flowchart describes the flow of materials and information, displays the tasks associated with a process, shows the decisions that need to be made along the chain and shows the essential relationships between the process steps.


Project Management

Project Management can be described as the process of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing a project, from its beginning to its completion, to achieve a final goal in a certain period, at a certain cost and quality, through the mobilization of material resources, technological resources, financial resources and human resources. 
The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals within the given constraints, reaching the best possible result of the cost-term-quality trinomial.
