1. Engaged Champion

A Champion for the project at a high level (plant manager) who looks at the data and pushes the team on Amper goals

2. Project Owner vs. Champion

The main project owner is not that same person at a high level– the high level person just doesn’t have the time

3. KPI Integration

Amper Utilization or OEE data incorporated into plant KPI’s– looked at daily/weekly

4. Data Entry Enforcement

Operations Supervisor or Leads are involved in using data and making sure it’s entered

5. Recurring Meetings

Recurring meetings with the CSM to train, understand best practices, and get updates on new features
