T Minus Meetings


T minus stands for ‘time remaining’ to the preventative maintenance (PM) planned outage and it’s a tremendously powerful tool that TGG offers.

As companies get serious about equipment reliability, they begin to understand that as much as 85% of failures cannot be predicted on machine cycles or planned/expected wear.  With this realization comes the importance of ‘opportunity’ work orders and finding these failures before they occur.

The PM outage is the Super Bowl

T Minus is how we prepare for the game

TGG will take your team through a series of planned meetings who’s structure is built on the chassis of PDCA.  The importance of this foundation, is that your team’s meeting topics & content will improve every day week over week.

T minus is one of the items in our (7) point model that we call STRANDS and an essential link to improving the OEE of your assets.
