Total Productive Maintenance Consultants

Achieve Higher Quality, Fewer Defects & Lower Manufacturing Cost with us.

TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) is a culture that focuses on improving the effectiveness of the plant, equipment and processes through the empowerment of people to achieve perfect production.

TPM emphasises proactive and preventative maintenance to maximise the operational efficiency of equipment. It blurs the distinction between the roles of production and maintenance by placing a strong emphasis on empowering operators to help maintain their equipment.

Getting operators involved in maintaining their own equipment, and emphasising proactive and preventive maintenance will lay a foundation for improved production (fewer breakdowns, stops, and defects).

Why Company choose TPM approch

Before TPM implementation operator only use the machine and the maintenance person is responsible for daily maintenance due to which maintenance persons don’t get enough time for preventive maintenance. After successfully implementing TPM in manufacturing, they can produce their product in LESS TIME, LESS COST, ZERO LOSS, without affecting quality of the product. 

The goal of TPM is to Increase production as well as improve the moral and job satisfaction of employees. Through achieving -ZERO FAILURE, ZERO LOSS, ZERO DEFECT, ZERO ACCIDENT

-Operators develop skills to routinely maintain equipment and identify emerging problems.
-Maintenance personnel learn techniques for proactive and preventative
maintenance.
-Managers are trained on TPM principles as well as on employee coaching and development.

-New equipment reaches planned performance levels much faster due tofewer startup issues.
-Directs practical knowledge and understanding of manufacturing
equipment gained through TPM towards improving the design of new
equipment.
-Maintenance is simpler and more robust due to practical review and
employee involvement prior to installation.

-Design error detection and prevention into production processes.
-Apply Root Cause Analysis to eliminate recurring sources of quality defects.
-Specifically targets quality issues with improvement projects focused on
removing root sources of defects.
-Reduces number of defects.
-Reduces cost by catching defects early (it is expensive and unreliable to find
defects through inspection).

-Apply TPM techniques to administrative functions.
-Extends TPM benefits beyond the plant floor by addressing waste in administrative functions.
-Supports production through improved administrative operations (e.g.
order processing, procurement, and scheduling).

-Maintain a safe and healthy working environment.
