Total productive maintenance is a process of maintenance management that empowers the organization with a progressive, continuous philosophy of enabling all manpower resources to work together to accomplish the mutual goal of manufacturing efficiency. Does it sound complicated? Maybe, but once understood, total productive maintenance can help your staff encompass an attitude that will lead to greater production efficiency.
The goals of total productive maintenance are manufacturing oriented and overall reduced costs are a common thread in all aspects of the initiative. Total productive maintenance involves the reform of the current organization to unlock, what may in fact be, hidden potential; potential to cause better involvement and cooperation within the current resources.
The need for total productive maintenance becomes apparent when departments that should be allies in the goals of the company, in reality, become opposing forces that are detrimental to productivity. Hence, this hurts overall profit and the ability of the company to compete in this now global market. The total productive maintenance attitude eliminates the pointing of blame and replaces it with productive fault analysis without the finger pointing. This enables those potential opposing forces in your operation to work together to the goal of mutual efficiency.
