Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
Total Productive Maintenance is an approach to maintenance operations and management that focuses on optimizing the performance of equipment and processes. It is a holistic approach that combines preventive maintenance, predictive maintenance, and autonomous maintenance to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of production systems. TPM seeks to reduce downtime, improve quality, and increase productivity by focusing on the proactive maintenance of equipment and processes. It involves the use of data-driven techniques to identify and address potential problems before they occur, as well as the use of preventive maintenance to reduce the likelihood of breakdowns. TPM also emphasizes the involvement of all personnel in the maintenance process, from operators to engineers, to ensure that all stakeholders are aware of the importance of maintenance and its impact on the overall performance of the system.
