In providing new packaging equipment lines, the specification, engineering, and installation are of considerable priority. Of equal importance, in bringing the line to desired efficiencies, is the training and competency of the staff that will be responsible for the day-to-day and shift-to-shift production.
WHAT DOES TRAINING MEAN TO YOU?
Industry wide, the term “training” is generally used to describe the explanation of operation to operators and maintenance personnel; however, it is open to many interpretations. To clarify these various connotations, IPM has developed the EQUIPS program to better describe the comprehensive approach we take to accomplish the transfer and archive of information from OEMs to plant personnel and operations.
WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
The top level objective of EQUIPS is to have the startup, operation, and maintenance of equipment achieve performance levels at efficiencies above any other method of instruction.
