Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a holistic approach to equipment maintenance that strives to achieve perfect production with little or no breakdowns, no short stoppages or slow running and no defects. In addition, it promotes a safe working environment with no accidents. Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) emphasises proactive and preventive maintenance practices to maximise the operational efficiency of equipment and places a strong emphasis on empowering operators to maintain equipment to a high standard.

The implementation of a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) programme creates a shared responsibility for equipment that encourages greater involvement. Used correctly, TPM is effective in improving productivity by increasing availability, reducing cycle times and achieving zero defects.

In addition, there is the opportunity to discuss the practical aspects of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) implementation, how it can be applied to your company and to help develop a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) programme plan and supporting structure.
