Identifying problems, their root cause and a range of potential solutions can be achieved as part of a structured, company-wide initiative using NSK’s Added Value Programme (AIP). AIP is designed to deliver real benefits in operating costs, efficiency and profitability across all industry sectors. These benefits are achieved by delivering tangible savings to assets, such as equipment and machinery, and also by improving the working knowledge of maintenance and engineering personnel.
增值计划是一种标准化方法，已在整个NSK组织中采用。 通过简化的流程，客户可以了解并理解流程; 它向他们展示了NSK如何为他们的业务增加价值。
As part of its AIP programme, NSKs Engineering team – alongside the customers own employees – conduct comprehensive reviews on all aspects of a company’s operations, including systems, stock, specific problem applications, lubrication, and even training issues are audited. An analysis of the data acquired is then performed and this leads to recommendations for improvements.
In practice, these recommendations could relate to a specific product solution or even training: covering issues such as how to examine or look after bearings; how to spot failure modes; and how to handle bearings correctly – as this is one of the most common causes of premature bearing failure.
NSK has helped 100’s of customers avoid major process pitfall’s, achieve higher rates of productivity and save thousands of euros every year! To indicate how important these cost savings can be, NSK has launched a Cost Savings Calculator App that allows users to compare their existing bearings set up with an improved NSK solution.
Many examples of the effective implementation of NSK’s AIP approach can be seen in the various Success Stories available on NSK’s website; or even by using NSK’s Solutions App, where the user is taken through a journey of real life Success Stories. The App’s are available through NSK’s website or directly from all major App stores.
