OOPS!® FOCUS USER --
Tom Malfara, Maintenance Manager
Chesapeake Display & Packaging
West Des Moines, IA
Chesapeake Display and Packaging is a manufacturer of corrugated point
of purchase displays, used in grocery stores for the display of
merchandise. Tom is in charge of maintaining the facility, as well as
the manufacturing equipment, which includes printing presses, die
cutters and folders.
The major use for OOPS!® at Chesapeake is for preventive maintenance
work orders. Tom is currently developing an Operational Maintenance
Program which trains the machine operators to maintain their own
equipment. "Instead of taking a machine down for two or three hours, we
want to train the operators to do small tasks in five to 10 minute
windows of time," says Malfara. To help with this program, he may
purchase a scanner to bring in drawings for use on the OOPS!® supplement
sheets. (Editor's Note: Doctor OOPS!® could be very helpful in this area too!)
Tom says "Because of the emphasis on PM work orders, breakdowns are
minimal . . . OOPS! gives us the documentation we need to verify that
the work is being done."
Efficiency is the keyword at Colorado Power Partners. Ounce of
Prevention Systems is confident that OOPS!®, Doctor OOPS!® and OOPS!®
outstanding support will help them reach their goal!
