On-site Training (3 days) + Workshop (3 days)

Through this Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) training, EXEGENS® offers you the  Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) approach whose objective is to increase the efficiency of the equipment and, of each piece of the equipment.

TPM can be considered as the “Medicine for hands and equipment”. More specifically this is a whole maintenance program. TPM aims to improve productivity, to improve the working time and to increase employee moral and satisfaction. TPM is an innovative Japanese concept and ww can say that it began in 1951 when preventive maintenance was introduced in Japan. Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is the maintenance performed by all employees organized in small groups. TPM has two main goals: zero equipment failures (zero breakdowns) and zero defects. These are improving the equipment productivity percentages and reducing the costs. Meanwhile, it reduces the costs for spare parts storage.

The TPM goals: avoid waste at rapid changes in the economic environment (competitors, suppliers and customer requirements), rapidly manufacture products without reducing quality, production with lots of small quantities in the shortest possible time, reducing costs, goods sent to customers should not have defects.

Statistical results of TPM: productivity improvement by 50%, breakdowns reduction 1-100 or 1-150, reducing the number of defects 1-10, reduction of the customer complaints, reducing maintenance costs by 30%, reduction of the running production with 50%, reducing electricity costs by 30%, zero accidents, zero pollution, increasing the number of the suggestions of the employees to 10 times.

Maintenace types: breakdown maintenance, preventive maintenance – periodic maintenance (Time based maintenance – TBM) and predictive maintenance, corrective maintenance, maintenance prevention

The 9 pillars of TPM:

  1. Kobetsu Kaizen: KAIZEN projects to identify and reduce the 16 categories of losses in order to increase the OEE and the productivity of the employees.

  2. Autonomous Maintenance: 7 steps by Jishu Hoyen (autonomous maintenance) to achieve the concept of “my machine.”

  3. Planned Maintenance: designing the general plan in order to reach zero stops of the machines.

  4. Quality Maintenance: eliminating chronic losses to reach zero defects.

  5. Initial phase of the equipment / product control: creating archives for planned maintenance to remove losses since the initial phase.

  6. Training: designing techical training programs to develop the skilles of the employees.

  7. TPM in the offices: autonomous maintenance in the offices and KKobetsu Kaizen to eliminate “the work without  purpose” in the offices (which does not add value).

  8. Safety, Health & Environment: design Kaizen projects in those dangerous areas to bring accidents and pollution to zero.

  9. Customer satistaction: the creation of “loss tree” for the customers to reduce complaints to zero (target costing for NPD).

Summary of the training session:

Day I
