Total Productive Maintenance
A guide for manufacturing
If your manufacturing company is regularly experiencing machine breakdowns, manufacturing products that don’t meet quality standards, or your machine production speed is lower than design intent, then you could benefit from Total Productive Maintenance (TPM).
How to improve equipment effectiveness and reduce downtime
Equipment problems impact significantly on your ability to do business. Breakdowns result in downtime, slow running equipment means tasks take longer than they should, and faulty equipment can lead to product inconsistencies and failure to meet quality standards. All this impacts significantly on your ability to meet KPIs, customer requirements, and financial targets.
Then there are the implications for your workforce. Production operators may be frustrated with machine failures constantly preventing them from doing their jobs properly. Maintenance staff may be equally frustrated about being alerted to the same problems time and again.
So what’s the solution? Replacing equipment with the best and latest technology isn’t always a viable one, nor is it always the most effective in the long-term.
Over the past two decades, one of the approaches manufacturing organisations have used to improve equipment effectiveness and reduce downtime is TPM.
In this eBook, we explore the whats and whys of TPM, and how to implement it to reduce downtime in your manufacturing organisation.
