Every manufacturing facility would like to have  "zero downtime, zero work-related accident, and zero defect".  Although these may seem to be impossible goals, they are in fact achievable through Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) that focuses on “deterioration prevention” and "maintenance reduction" of equipment.  

TPM aims to :
  • Maintain equipment in good working condition
  • Extent equipment working life by slowing deterioration
  • Develop employee skills to operate and maintain equipment competently
  • Ensure safe operation and servicing of equipment by employees
  • Ensure equipment is able to function in all areas critical to quality
  • Reduce machine downtime due to equipment maintenance and repair
  • Guide the organization to select / modify equipment to match their operational needs
This training will provide participants with a good overview of the concepts and practical approaches in implementing an effective TPM program. It provides an introduction to the 8 Pillars of TPM and the TPM implementation roadmap. In addition, participants can identify production losses due to low Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and establish appropriate action plans.

  • Understand the origin and development of TPM, and its purpose and impact
  • Define the difference between conventional maintenance versus a world class approach to maintenance that is TPM
  • Have an overview of TPM’s 8 Pillars that is required for shopfloor implementation
  • Comprehend well the 8 major equipment losses
  • Capture the correlation between equipment losses and OEE
  • Have an overview of the implementation roadmap.

  • Upon completion of this training, participants would be able to :
  • Initiate a maintenance improvement program
  • Understand equipment losses and take preventive actions  
  • Establish  a company-wide implementation plan  
  • Improve machine downtime and enhance productivity
  • Develop autonomous teams with ownership and commitment, and form improvement teams.

  • History and Development of TPM
  • Objectives and Benefits of TPM 
  • 8 major equipment losses and measure of machine productivity – OEE
  • The 8 Pillars of TPM expounded in detail:
    • Focused Improvement
    • Autonomous Maintenance
    • Planned Maintenance
    • Technical Training
    • Early Equipment Management 
    • Quality Maintenance
    • Office TPM
    • Safety, Health and Environment
  • TPM Implementation Roadmap.
Management, engineers, maintenance and production professionals responsible for the development, implementation and/or improvement of the maintenance management system and enhancing production capacities in the organisation.

Special note to Automotive Industry Manufacturers:
Organizations that intend to implement TPM specifically  to be certified to IATF 16949:2016 should attend  Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) for IATF 16949:2016 (LEA35).
All Neville-Clarke tutors are full time consultants  and trainers.  The tutor assigned is an experienced professional who is able to guide you on TPM and provide practical advice and tips to enable effective implementation of TPM in your organisation.

This is a one-day course running from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm.
