What is Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and how are your manufacturing processes able to benefit from it?

If you are in manufacturing you will probably work with a lot of machines and equipment. These machines need maintenance to stay productive and to help prevent faulty products who don’t pass quality inspections. TPM can help with this. You can see this as an preventative system which helps to detect which machines show defects. This basically means a strategy in which you routinely check all your machines. 

If you want to maintain and improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) you want to be looking at three main things: performance, quality and availability. If you can map this out for all your equipment you are able to use these insights in your TPM strategy.

Usually these 8 pillars are the foundation for a strong TPM strategy:

  1. Development
  2. Autonomy of maintenance
  3. Improvement of new equipment
  4. Education
  5. Process worth management
  6. Administrative work
  7. Quality maintenance
  8. Healthy workspace

If these pillars are included in your TPM strategy you will be able to get the most performance out of your production plant. Saving you lots of money, reduction of accidents and waste. 

In the current day and age there are a lot of companies who can help you map out your TPM strategy. This can be done through the usage of various apps and web platforms. For example 4 Industry provides a very user friendly platform, which can be a helping hand for implementing a solid TPM strategy.
