• Implementation of maintenance on two motor plant shop floors;
• Comprehensive and professional project management;
• Trusting and long-standing experience in cooperation with MDC Power.

Thus, MDC Power can concentrate exclusively on its core competencies, i.e., production and quality.

In addition to maintenance and tool management, Voith Industrial Services’ contract also includes technical and infrastructural facility management. With respect to the organization of maintenance, there was a clear separation between line work and project work, i.e., the industrial service provider’s project team implements the project while local, operational employees of the industrial service providers already start the ramp-up phase on site.

To place the focus on the customer was the highest maxime of Voith Industrial Services. Due to close coordination, trusting collaboration and structured processes, the team achieved this goal. A professional project management including weekly status meetings to discuss potentially difficult topics or meetings in situations that required decisions as well as the establishment of a committee structure substantially contributed to success. “A major advantage was that we have long-term experience with similar projects in the automotive industry. This enables us to provide comprehensive best practices worldwide”, says Alexander Bonk, one of the Managing Directors at Voith Industrial Services.

For example, former projects such as real-time data recording with shop floor organization in Poland served as a basis for this project. With respect to spare parts management, the team could refer to best practices when implementing a scanner system for automated recording of storage and removal. While the workshop team could benefit from the experience concerning clear marking and separation of areas, personnel development could rely on best practices such as tools for professional assignment of staff and target-oriented trainings.

On this basis, the industrial service provider defined work packages to implement processes for IT, spare parts management or recruiting, taking into account any safety-related issues. At the same time, the recruiting of additionally required professional employees and staff building were started.

In fall 2015, after almost six months of work, the implementation phase was complete just in time before production start-up of the new four-cylinder engine in the MDC Power engine plant at the end of October. Currently, the shop floor activities are gradually and steadily ramped up simultaneously with MDC’s production and shift ramp-up.
