Asset Care and use the of tablets
"We plan, execute and review our preventive asset care on a 24 hour cycle. In addition we review all reactive asset care 24 hourly. We do this using the SAPPM platform which enables to easily track asset care completion, modify our plans and manage our spares inventory.
Our shift based technicians are all equipped with tablets, on which they receive the work orders, have access to maintenance manuals and, most importantly, write up short reports for each asset care task that they carry out.
We will explain how we use these systems to carefully manage our asset care compliance, effectiveness and costs.
People management philosophy
"In Sidcup we produce and distribute drinks 24/7 and employ nearly 300 people, the majority of whom are shift based to do that.
In order to do that to high levels of productivity and efficiency we pride ourselves on an engaged workforce with a diversity of skills and competencies.
As a management team we work hard on maintaining that engagement skills range through structured people management processes including a twice yearly appraisal system, talent management reviews and a philosophy of Clarity, Care and Capability that we try to adhere to on a daily basis.
We will illustrate these processes during the visit.
