Course Description

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is one of the most poplar maintenance technique introduced in Japan with continuous improvement (Kaizen) philosophy. It provides a comprehensive, life cycle approach to equipment management that minimizes equipment failures, production defects and accidents.  TPM involves everyone in the organization, from top level management to production mechanics and production support groups to outside suppliers. 

The objective is to continuously improve the availability and prevent the degradation of equipment to achieve maximum effectiveness. The final TPM concept is really made up of two concepts, equipment design and predictive maintenance that are focused on reducing the overall amount of maintenance that is required.

By working with equipment suppliers, the knowledge that is gained from maintaining equipment can be incorporated into the next generation of equipment designs.
