Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) : 1 Day Including Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is an initiative for optimising the effectiveness of equipment. TPM is team-based productive maintenance and requires active participation by everyone from production workers and maintenance personnel to engineering departments and top management.
TPM draws from the behavioural sciences as well as the traditional engineering disciplines in creating a manufacturing environment in which preventive maintenance activities are viewed as everyone’s responsibility.  Operators no longer just operate and call the maintenance department when a breakdown occurs.  They also autonomously perform certain routine preventive maintenance activities such as cleaning, inspection, lubrication and running adjustments.
Maintenance personnel are then free to employ their skills on higher level preventive maintenance activities and overhauls. Everyone views goals of zero breakdowns, maximising productivity and zero product defects as shared responsibilities.
Who Takes This Course
Managers, Engineers, Supervisors and other operational personnel from production, manufacturing, engineering and maintenance.
Learning Objectives
The course will provide participants with a detailed understanding of TPM.  Participants will also learn about the roles and responsibilities and importance of team involvement in TPM, how to develop a TPM implementation plan and the critical factors for a successful TPM programme.
