Total Productive Maintenance is an especially attractive method for improving efficiency, as while it requires concerted effort and a not insignificant time investment, it has minimal monetary costs.
Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) September 14, 2017
Creative Safety Supply, Oregon’s premier vendor of safety and efficiency solutions, has released a new, free guide designed to quickly bring readers up to speed on the basic concepts and potential benefits of Total Productive Maintenance.
First envisioned by Toyota subsidiary Nippondenso, then greatly expanded by Seiichi Nakajima (the famed “father of Total Productive Maintenance”), Total Productive Maintenance is a system of proactively maintaining tools and equipment in such a way that breakdowns and down time are kept to a minimum, while instilling in workers a sense of personal pride in and responsibility for the tools and machines they use each day. Total Productive Maintenance is an especially attractive method for improving efficiency, as while it requires concerted effort and a not insignificant time investment, it has minimal monetary costs.
A comprehensive look at this popular methodology, our guide first explains how Total Productive Maintenance can benefit a business, then walks readers through the steps necessary to establish a Total Productive Maintenance plan tailored to their specific needs and industry. Not only does the guide examine the eight pillars of Total Productive Maintenance, it also highlights the Six Big Losses, as well as the benefits of tracking Overall Equipment Effectiveness. Finally, we examine the differences between Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and Total Quality Management (TQM), two approaches to management that are often confused for one another owing to their similar names and acronyms.
Like all guides from Creative Safety Supply, our free Total Productive Maintenance guide is available at no cost in a handy .PDF format, making it easy to share the document with colleagues as needed.
