Been there: I had various opportunities in the technical department, to work as a maintenance technician, maintenance planner and the reliability technician. This gave me an advantage to better understand the business and setting my goals in improving our maintenance strategy.
Done that: I am specializing in lazer alignment, which has assisted the business on cost cutting as it was one of the outsourced functions.
Watch out: Condition based monitoring is a big thing in the maintenance strategies, in a month time I will be implementing the vibrational analysis and condition monitoring in our plant however the plan is to go regional with it starting with port Elizabeth Bulk plant.
