Why Implement Total Productive Maintenance

Implementation of TPM Is Changing the Mindset of the Organization.

Need for Change :-

Organizational change is needed in order to align the company with changing business environment.

TPM emphasizes proactive and preventative maintenance to maximize the operational efficiency of equipment. It blurs the distinction between the roles of production and maintenance by placing a strong emphasis on empowering operators to help maintain their equipment.

The implementation of a TPM program creates a shared responsibility for equipment that encourages greater involvement by plant floor workers. In the right environment this can be very effective in improving productivity (increasing up time, reducing cycle times, and eliminating defects).

There are external and internal factors which necessitate the Change.

Market volumes, changing product profile, competition on price and variety, stringent product specifications, change in business environment driven by government Policies etc.,

Internal factors:

skills of employees, present plant technologies with respect to future product specifications driven by customers, level of productivity, Quality, cost and morale of employees.
