Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

A Japanese maintenance improvement program used to change the maintenance processes and culture to increase productivity.  It particularly focuses on aspects such as attitude, motivation, responsibilities, and performance of the workforce.  Thus, everyone in the company must understand that their job performance impacts the performance of the asset.  

It empowers operators to take over maintenance tasks.  The results are measured by the OEE rate. TPM is a company wide management program that emphasizes production operator involvement in equipment maintenance, and continuous improvement approaches.
