Today’s operating environment demands predictable equipment performance.
Having fully reliable equipment is a pre-requisite for meeting customer demand, on-time. And, reliability increases stakeholder value. That’s why it is our belief that the overall competitiveness of your organization depends on establishing stable and reliable processes and equipment. That’s what TPM does.
TPM is a strategic, systemic improvement process with multiple pillars of application. It incorporates a disciplined series of planned and preventive routines targeting zero losses and the highest level of reliability and capability. TPM fosters continuous and rapid improvement through employee involvement, team structures, and a closed-loop measurement of results to ensure long term equipment performance.
For over 40 years, we’ve assisted organization in the implementation of TPM. We know How-To do TPM and we know How-To transfer that knowledge to you and your process owners. We educate managers and associates in the technical TPM methodologies, among them, operator-based care, planned and predictive maintenance, stores management, design for manufacturability and maintainability, focused improvement and more. Simultaneously, we work with leaders at all levels on the social side to create leader standard work routines, instill a problem-solving capability and a daily management process that ensures the effort is under control and sustainable.
The outcome is a data-driven process that increases flexibility and operating capacity, controls costs, improves safety, increases customer and employee satisfaction and allows your organization to meet its strategic goals.
Whether you are just getting started or are renewing efforts, interested in maintenance transformation or have a targeted implementation project, Productivity’s TPM consulting team, coupled with our 8-Step TPM Rollout Process, is the reliable, collaborative path forward. We have honed the implementation process and ensure a manageable rate and pace of implementation to accommodate your specific environment.
Keep value flowing and maximize your profitability, let us help you make pursuit of OEE (availability x performance x quality) your new normal. Contact us today, your TPM ROI will be a multiple of our fee in cost savings alone.
