REFERENZ | STIHL A professional tool for the maker of tools for professionals STIHL significantly improves plant reliability with versiondog In large, heavily-specialised production facilities, such as those belonging to STIHL, it is vital that both management and maintenance are able to keep track of all aspects of their production.

Each division has its own maintenance team, who use their extensive technical expertise to monitor and maintain the plant’s daily operations. Situated above them is a central maintenance pool, which is made up of a team of specialists whose job it is to support the on-site teams if there are any time constraints or when specialised know-how is required.

That isn’t quite the case with the STIHL maintenance teams located in Switzerland, the USA, Brazil and China. However, the lack of frequency is made up for by the quality of the exchanges; when they do take place, they are run in the form of workshops and by inhouse staff who make production equipment for the company. Designing and making their own production equipment for use in both in-house and external facilities is what gives STIHL one of its most important competitive advantages.
