TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) is a process designed to maintain equipment to maximise its avaialbility and thus reduce downtime or LOST time for procesess dependent equipment. Maintaining equipment helps to achieve the goal of: Zero Accidents, Zero Defects, Zero Breakdowns, Zero Waste
By keeping your equipment reliable, costs are reduced, quality is improved and safety is built into the process, thus increasing your competitive edge, ie increase the On Time In Full (OTIF) measure. Traditional maintenance systems rely just on equipment OEM service level agreements to attend annual service schedules or call outs to attend equipment breakdowns (lost time). Along with In-house preventative maintenance plans, this is how availably is achieved.
What if you could have a third system which incorporates the actual operator of the equipment to become your first line of defence to breakdowns. By utilising basic daily checks to confirm the machine or equipment, we can now utilise a new set of sensory detection, ie being proactive to breakdowns rather than traditional reactive modes.
We will also introduce the client to OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) which acts a major kpi for improvement.
We’ll explore what TPM is and the historic background. Why we to use it when equipment is used in the process. We will consider the benefits of this low-cost system. The need to identify TPM with the business, to ensure that standards and learning are being employed in a consistent way. How best to introduce the system into daily operations by utilising local / OEM equipment knowledge and developing standard daily checks.
Team members will finish their workshop with an understanding of TPM basics and have enough knowledge to:
