EWO Module

The EWO module is one of the activities provided by companies that apply the World Class Manufacturing (WCM) methodologies.

Through the EWO module, operators can report any event that requires maintenance work on the machines.

What are the benefits of this activity?

Those who use WCM are well aware that they can intervene immediately when the problem is not serious, avoiding a drastic intervention that will result in:

  • a higher cost of repair
  • a stop in production for the duration of the intervention.

The EWO module therefore allows immediate evidence of warnings and malfunctions and facilitates the work of the maintenance technician in searching for the root causes of the problem


NeXT EWO module

The NeXT EWO module is a software module that must be executed when a scheduled ticket is closed.

The person in charge of the intervention will use an interface organized in steps to describe the problem, the causes and the solutions adopted. The steps are as follows:

  • General
  • Analysis
  • Root cause actions
  • Actions for maintenance


EWO module: General

In the first step, we will record the name of the maintainer, the machine involved in the intervention, the duration of the intervention, extensive description of the problem, extensive description of the intervention, the root cause, type of root cause, any images or drawings (sketches) made by the maintainer.

EWO module: actions against root causes

In the third step we list the useful actions against the root cause, to prevent the problem from occurring again.

Once each action has been identified, it will be necessary to establish who will take care of it and when.

In the same way as the previous step, the compiler identifies the actions necessary to keep the system stable and efficient.

EWO module and Machine Ledger

Saving the EWO module will ensure that it will automatically appear inside the machine ledger, the main instrument of professional maintenance.
