A systematic approach to improving production and quality systems, total productive maintenance (TPM) involves all employees through a moderate investment in maintenance. Therefore, a successful TPM implementation requires support of all employees from C-level on down. Total Productive Maintenance: Strategies and Implementation Guide highlights the importance of effective communication on all levels to successful TPM implementation. It also discusses the role of the right set of tools from the right perspective—and demonstrates how to obtain a healthy balance of both. Authors Tina Agustiady and Elizabeth Cudney recognized a need for better understanding of how to apply and integrate the TPM philosophy and its associated tools and techniques. In this book they build a framework of problem-solving methods and tools from the TPM toolkit that help you understand the problems, develop process improvements, and develop a plan to implement change. They also provide an overview and introduction to the TPM methodology, detailed information on TPM implementation, and in-depth case studies. A major highlight of the book is the inclusion of case studies and applications of TPM that have shown significant improvement in meeting customer requirements and reducing downtime of processes. These in-depth descriptions demonstrate how to successfully apply TPM based on real-world projects from a wide variety of processes. They provide hands-on experience—an invaluable resource when instructing the use of methods and tools in training or in a classroom. And, these case studies give you detailed step-by-step approaches to TPM integration with clear direction from project infancy to completion.

TPM Reloaded

Author: Joel Levitt
ISBN: 0831134267
Release Date: 2010-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

When practiced appropriately, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) can tilt the playing field in your company's favor. It makes similar machines turn out significantly more product (lowering capital costs), with less scrap or waste (lowering raw material costs), more efficiently (lowers labor needed). The work force is more motivated, more engaged, more flexible and more aggressive in seeking improvements. TPM adds the worker's creativity to the equation. TPM recognizes that the employee is the secret weapon. TPM helps unleash their talent, attention and team spirit. You will also see that TPM is a production/operations effort as much as Lean manufacturing, Total Quality or any other company-wide production program. TPM Reloaded is a challenging, innovative, and timely new look at implementing TPM by one of the field's leading trainers and authors. It takes into account the economic upheavals of recent years and demonstrates that TPM is less about moving maintenance tasks to operations than moving accountability for aggregate output of the plant to operators. The book goes on to show that effective TPM û TPM reloaded - requires a radical change in management's view of the worker and even more daunting, a radical change in the way workers view their own role. Joel Levitt wrote this book for managers and supervisors of all types of operations and production, from traditional manufacturing and assembly to mining, refining, smelting, chemical production, as well as for service industries such as trucking and facility maintenance. The concepts of TPM can be applied to any productive effort, as varied as a bus driver (as the operator) or a control room operator aboard a ship or in a refinery. Regardless of where you work, this book can be an invaluable guide for implementing TPM and helping your company achieve greater success.
