TPM - TOTAL PRODUCTIVE  MAINTENANCE


A key principles of TPM is to elevate the humble maintenance task to be a serious part of the production
process, rather than a bunch of fix-it mechanics or a 'when there's time' activity. It also aims to be more efficient
than Preventive Maintenance (PM) which can be over-zealous in its regular servicing, even when it is not
necessary.

The  major losses of TPM are:

Breakdown
Equipment failure
Set up time
Start-up
Other downtime
Minor stoppages and idling
Reduced speed
Defects and rework
Waiting for management
Logistics
Operating movements
Measurement and adjustment
Line organization
Energy
Yield
