This course will involve the primary focus of constant improvement in the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) as it relates to equipment and capital assets. Total Productivity Management (TPM) focuses on getting managers, maintenance personnel and equipment users all working together to prevent equipment problems and reduce expenditures.
By giving ownership and responsibility of equipment and processes to the right employees, equipment breakdowns are reduced. TPM brings maintenance into focus as a necessary and vitality important part of the business. TPM is used at all levels of the organisation.
TPM is team-based productive maintenance and requires active participation by everyone from production workers and maintenance personnel to engineering departments and top management.
