TPM®: Total Productive Maintenance

TPM is the Solution:
TPM (Total Productive Maintenance/Management) is a program promoted by JMAC to improve total manufacturing system efficiency. TPM aims for zero accidents, zero defects, zero breakdowns and zero loss through the creation of a perfect manufacturing system. The success of TPM is based on understanding the concept of how to implement total employee participation in the company. Our SERVICES can help you to take the lead to improve the condition of your workforce and machinery.

TPM Scope

TPM 8 Pillar

The 8 Pillars of TPM

The complete TPM programme is based on eight major activities, designet to work together to raise efficiency by eliminating the 16 Big Production Losses. These activities are called the '8 pillars of TPM' - their names are:

  1. Focused Improvement (Kobetsu-Kaizen)
  2. Autonomous Maintenance (Jishu-Hozen)
  3. Planned Maintenance (Keikaku-Hozen)
  4. Education & Training
  5. Early Management (Prodcut & Equipment)
  6. Quality Maintenance (Quality-Hozen)
  7. Office TPM (TPM in Administrative and Support Departments)
  8. SHE (Safety, Health, & Environment)

TPM is not just the production department's responsibility; it must also be driven by everyone in the maintenance department, the production planning department, and all other relevant departments in the company; with all being members either of TPM teams or pillar subcommittees. Contract workers and part-time staff should also support the efficiency drive by getting involved in the TPM programme.
