Benchmarking project to improve maintenance practices

To improve tool control and maintenance Fonterra, a NZ Manufacturer of dairy products, undertook an external benchmarking project with an airline as a benchmarking partner. The purpose of the project was to observe the partner facilities and learn maintenance best practices using TRADE. Fonterra’s rapid benchmarking team visited the airline’s facilities and questioned their staff. The team learned lessons regarding health and safety standards, culture and values, maintenance operations and performance recording systems. A good number of lessons were learned and as a result of the benchmarking study Fonterra developed a new Operations and Quality Strategy that incorporated the learning from the airline. A whole range of practices were modified or introduced in the areas of health and safety, engagement measurement, values and culture, security and the intranet.
