To be verified

A practical two-day training workshop on implementing Total Productive Maintenance. This programme can also be delivered over one day, depending on the customers requirements.

Total Productive Maintenance – TPM
TPM is a dynamic team-based methodology for involving all employees in developing a long-term preventive maintenance programme and for reducing unscheduled stoppages, breakdowns, instability and unreliability. Maintenance people concentrate on preventive measures, maintenance analysis, designing machines for maintainability, and educating the workforce.

Operators become full partners with Maintenance and assume responsibility for ensuring that daily tasks (data gathering, cleaning, lubricating, checking, etc.) are performed.

TPM combines the practice of preventive maintenance with Total Quality Control and Total Employee Involvement. It is a deceptively simple yet decidedly revolutionary system of on-going maintenance that is transforming the face of modern manufacturing.

TPM relies on small-group activities and participative input, total employee involvement and dedication to quality of equipment care. TPM teaches us how to prevent breakdowns, so critical in any manufacturing company seeking world class performance.
