Objective zero failure with the TPM method, Total Productive Maintenance
Do you want to reduce time and wasted resources? Produce more efficiently and reduce waste at a lower cost?
Choose the TPM method, Total Productive Maintenance, which improves the productivity of your equipment by reducing downtime and breakdowns. While optimising productivity, quality and other performance indicators.
OBJECTIVE ZERO STOP/BREAKDOWN, ZERO FAULTS, ZERO ACCIDENTS
Definition of the maintenance's technique : the TPM
The TPM method, Total Productive Maintenance, is a practice aimed at building a corporate culture that improves the efficiency of the production system. It allows the gradual transition from a curative maintenance system to preventive maintenance (or even predictive maintenance in some cases).
This is the result of a managerial focus on :
- Establishing a Continuous Improvement Policy
- Involving all staff by empowering them
- Improving performance QUALITY / COSTS / DEADLINES
- Improving equipment (productivity, efficiencies, etc.).
Considering all aspects of maintenance, involve everyone in it
Ensuring maintenance by producing and penalising production as little as possible
Maintainenance: repair, clean and grease. Spending time on this.
History of TPM, Total Productive Maintenance
TPM succeeded the American Preventive Maintenance (PM) and was developed in Japan after the Second World War.
TPM was introduced in the factories of the Nippondenso group before being formalised by the JIPM (Japan Institute of Plant Management).
In 1989, the JIPM defined 8 pillars on which a TPM approach is based to achieve a high level of industrial performance.
TPM is a registered trademark of JIPM.
What has changed in relation to PM is the participatory approach, the active participation of operators who know their machine (s) and therefore contribute effectively to its maintenance.
Purpose of the TPM approach, Total Productive Maintenance
The TPM approach, Total Productive Maintenance, focuses on the machine. It is increasingly becoming the first step in launching performance improvement initiatives.
To do this, the company must have eliminated the unexpected and chance in its production activities.
To be efficient, a site needs a reliable and available production tool.
The TPM, Total Productive Maintenance allows you to visualise easily and graphically the main indicators and the factors that influence their results. These graphs provide reports, based on TPM criteria, delivering customised analysis for projections of specific time or resources.
The purpose of data analysis is to determine the main causes of underperformance and to focus on progress actions on the causes that generate the largest gains in OEE, Overall Equipment Effectiveness.
TPM systems have three main objectives:
Minimise under-utilisation of equipment that causes large losses, including financial losses
Participate in the conservation of equipment through a real follow-up of maintenance
Improve the organisation and act on the factors that enable the best returns
Advantages in terms of direct results
- Establishment of maintenance and cleanliness on workstations and their environment
- Setting up a visual organisation
- Eliminating waste of time and material
- Improvement of equipment monitoring
- General improvement of the environment
- Communicate and involve everyone
- Reconsider your habits
- Making sustainable the results achieved and progressing continuously
- Respecting commitments and collective rules
SUCCEED IN ITS TPM METHOD
The TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) approach improves the production capacity of technical resources by building a system that avoids losses and waste such as "zero accidents, zero faults and zero breakdowns". This technique is based on fieldwork (Gemba) and concret (Genbutsu) throughout the life cycle of the production system.
The TPM involves the participation of all divisions. Not only those related to production but also the conception of production, development, marketing and administrative services, at all hierarchical levels, from managers to operators.
It enables to reach the "zero losses" by engaging in small group improvement initiatives.
Everyone must find an advantage in the TPM approach and this is not always the financial aspect even if it is put forward. This argument sometimes masks deeper needs.
One of the indeniable advantages for operators is that "it feels good to remove the thorn in your side".
This thorn can be as well the routine that one perceives, the attitude of the hierarchy, the feeling of not being heard as the difficulties that one encounters to carry out its work in normal conditions (difficulties due to the material, the raw materials, the organisation). This thorn can also be the need to feel useful, to be able to solve the problems encountered.
TRAINING BY PLAY FOR THE TPM METHOD
Average duration: 2h30
On the principle of an automobile route journey presented in the form of the game of the Goose sown with hazards, one tries to eliminate all sources of dysfunction of the means of production (external and internal)
Don't wait any longer to train your colleagues in TPM through games
The TPM-PDCA-SUGGESTION Starter Kit: Simple development of a PDCA board, improvement proposals (suggestion) and TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) as part of a pilot project following the game.
Results: collective and effective success.
