    Optimizing the relationship between people and equipment lies at the heart of Total Productive Maintenance. That’s why we chose these as the themes for TPM Week. Delivered through interactive remote-live sessions, you will learn how to establish the cultural infrastructure to manage maintenance operations in addition to learning how to analyze and eliminate losses. The program will be delivered by seasoned TPM practitioners with 20+ years of experience developing and coaching cross-functional teams and guiding them through TPM implementation. Concepts will be taught using real-world case studies and examples from a variety of industries.

    Why TPM?
    TPM dramatically improves your organizational culture, overall operations—and your bottom line. An unplanned breakdown costs 10 times the expense of planned downtime. Maintenance that is systematically scheduled can yield sizeable savings in every plant over the course of a year. And TPM frees up valuable production capacity without the drain of capital investment.


    Establishing the Maintenance Value Stream
    When you think TPM, think ‘team sport’ — the players on the field as well as those in the bullpen and in the dugout, all have a role to play in helping the organization become and remain successful. The same is true of TPM, which is actually more of a social program than a technical one. Setting the correct social constructs will go a long way to driving your success. In this portion of the program, we will focus on what you need to do to “field your TPM team”.
    TPM Roles and Responsibilities:

    • Operator Based Maintenance
    • The True Role of the Maintenance Organization
      • Planned Maintenance, planning and scheduling, managing stores
    • Coming off the Bench – what engineering and quality bring to the team
      • Quality Maintenance, maintenance prevention design
    • Leading the Effort
    • Getting Started: how you can field your best team

    Understanding Losses
    TPM requires data. Think of data in terms of player stats. In sports, teams study stats to identify strengths and weaknesses in their opponents’ players. Similarly, good data will allow you to identify and concentrate resources on the losses that are eating your lunch. In this portion of the program, we will focus on understanding losses.
    TPM is a data driven process:

    • TPM Metrics and Measures
    • Focused Improvement Pillar
    • Beyond Machine Losses
    • Machine Failure Analysis
    • SMED Quick Changeover
    • Getting Started: how you can establish a data driven effort


    Seiichi Nakajima, the father of TPM, said, “Total Productive Maintenance is equipment maintenance performed on a company-wide basis”, and we could not agree more. TPM is a team-sport and requires participation from all areas of your organization including production, engineering, quality, and of course maintenance. Individuals in your administrative and lab environments will also benefit from understanding the TPM principles.
