How Integrated Facility Management Optimizes Production

‘Crossing the yellow line’ is the title of our new whitepaper which highlights the benefits of Integrated Facility Management for the food & beverage industry. Streamlining all support services through a single efficient model increases asset uptime and reduces maintenance costs.

A barrier to genuinely streamlining the maintenance operations on production assets is the traditional ‘yellow line’ demarcation. Some organizations apply this demarcation between in-house maintenance teams who work on production machinery and equipment within the yellow line, and outsourced facilities services teams who are only permitted to maintain non-production assets outside the yellow line.

Outsourcing to one partner

The solution: outsourcing to a maintenance service provider like Leadec with the experience, knowledge, and technical resource to work on all assets on both sides of the yellow line. This makes the demarcation redundant. It enables the in-house maintenance team to assimilate into a single streamlined team for the whole site and its infrastructure, leverages innovation and new solutions for the production machinery. In addition, this integration measurably reduces maintenance costs.

A lot of F&B customers see the need to optimize the use and availability of production assets. The negative impacts of lost production from asset downtime are all too apparent in sub-optimal plant output levels and turnover. This is where we come in with our Integrated Facility Management model.

What is our Integrated FM model?

Leadec offers an Integrated Facility Management model which is a consolidation of hard (technical) and soft (non-technical) services. Under this Integrated FM model customers typically not only outsource the operational activity of the services, but also a portion of the tactical and the strategic alignment becomes a joint responsibility for their teams and us.

Outsourcing of maintenance alone will bring measurable gains, but the Integrated FM approach leverages a wider range of value benefits:

  • Reduction of the total cost of ownership
  • Streamlined and efficient service delivery with cross-trained multi-skilled teams
  • Partnership commitment which delivers accountability, shared risk & reward, drivers for innovation, and long-term value
  • A single interface with just one lead service provider partner


The whitepaper provides an overview of current challenges and opportunities in the food & beverage industry. In particular, under-utilization of plant and equipment and maintenance costs are having negative impacts.
