MANUFACTURERS HAVE THEIR SAY ON GETTING THE MOST OUT OF M/W MACHINES

When manufacturers of M/W equipment get together to talk about how to get the most out of their machines, the conversation keeps coming back to the role of the machine operator. Apparently he presents the biggest obstacle to the efficient use of their equipment. Other aspects of the subject are also discussed in this article, such as the need for supervisors to exercise a more positive role in training and supervising operators and in familiarizing themselves with the capabilities of the machines, the problem of safety and of getting more on-track time.
