Originator of TPM
The concept of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) was created in 1971, incorporating Japan's unique idea into PM (preventive maintenance of equipment) which is an equipment management system introduced from the United States in the 1950s to the 1960s.
Initial format of TPM was purposed on "Maximizing Equipment Efficiency" in the production department.
A paradigm shift change from the era of "selling something made" to the era of "making demanded products" had come.
Therefore, TPM has evolved from “Production Department TPM” to “Company-wide TPM” aiming “Optimization of Production Management Efficiency”.
