What do bronze, silver and gold levels mean?

Our bronze, silver and gold levels of maturity benchmark the achievement stage our maintenance teams have reached at each of our key customer plants. The initial bronze phase focuses on learning and overall adoption of the operating system standards. The secondary silver phase promotes process integration, teamwork and a higher level of continuous improvement. When a site reaches the gold phase, it means the team has achieved optimal performance levels, has a fully engaged culture and provides mentorship to other teams.
