Genre: Business & Economics

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.

Factors Affecting the Implementation of a Total Productive Maintenance System TPM

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: Modern manufacturing requires that organisations that want to be successful and to achieve world-class manufacturing must posses both effective and efficient maintenance. One approach to improve the performance of maintenance activities is to implement a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) system. The aim of this dissertation is to prove that the introduction of a TPM system is by no means an easy task, because there are several barriers that encumber the implementation process, the driving forces to success have to be identified and well understood, and a process of organisational change has to be managed successfully. The study analyses impediments, barriers and obstacles to the implementation procedure and discovers key success factors concluding with a conceptual framework for a successful TPM implementation. The dissertation also examines the challenge of managing change within the TPM context and identifies that such a TPM journey requires employee and management commitment to be successful. Through a case study of implementing TPM in an automotive supplier company, the practical aspect within and beyond basic TPM theory and problems encountered during the implementation are discussed and analysed. The paper concludes that the implementation of TPM is definitely not an easy task, which is considerably burdened by organisational, behavioural and other barriers, and necessitates the difficult mission to change peoples mindsets from a traditional maintenance approach.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

To be able to compete successfully both at national and international levels, production systems and equipment must perform at levels not even thinkable a decade ago. Requirements for increased product quality, reduced throughput time and enhanced operating effectiveness within a rapidly changing customer demand environment continue to demand a high maintenance performance. In some cases, maintenance is required to increase operational effectiveness and revenues and customer satisfaction while reducing capital, operating and support costs. This may be the largest challenge facing production enterprises these days. For this, maintenance strategy is required to be aligned with the production logistics and also to keep updated with the current best practices. Maintenance has become a multidisciplinary activity and one may come across situations in which maintenance is the responsibility of people whose training is not engineering. This handbook aims to assist at different levels of understanding whether the manager is an engineer, a production manager, an experienced maintenance practitioner or a beginner. Topics selected to be included in this handbook cover a wide range of issues in the area of maintenance management and engineering to cater for all those interested in maintenance whether practitioners or researchers. This handbook is divided into 6 parts and contains 26 chapters covering a wide range of topics related to maintenance management and engineering.

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.
