Once a company has initiated a Lean Enterprise, it must address the impact of equipment downtime on the operation. Most Lean Enterprises maintain less inventory, which is beneficial. But, the failure of equipment and the slow restoration of that equipment can have bigger impact because of these lower inventories. To reduce the impacts of downtime, Lean Enterprises establish Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) programs. TPM focuses on the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), not just scheduled or predictive maintenance. It is achieved by adopting more of a team approach to improve equipment uptime. A robust TPM program includes elements that can identify not only machine failure or interruption, but the trends toward out of specification products or components that affect rework or scrap volumes.
• Show how TPM can positively affect OEE
• Measure equipment deterioration
• Prevent equipment deterioration
• Improve preventative/predictive maintenance
• Engineer improvement solutions
• Show how TPM is a team activity
This course will help participants develop a TPM program for their facilities.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
• Understand the importance of TPM
• Participate in equipment improvement teams
• Provide technical support to operators
• Understand the linkages between Availability, Quality and Throughput
• Develop an OEE tracking program based on their environment
• Identify gaps in current maintenance programs
• Organize maintenance areas to improve response times
• Understand the concept of Autonomous Maintenance
