Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
If you’re familiar with Lean, you know that reducing waste is a big part of this methodology.
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) aims to reduce losses and waste related to the condition and maintenance of production equipment.
TPM is a method for achieving maximum equipment effectiveness that provides workers with a framework for efficiently caring for the equipment they use, which reduces the costs associated with repairs and replacements and eliminates downtime.
Gemba Academy’s Total Productive Maintenance courses explain TPM’s core fundamentals, benefits, and what you lose when you don’t make maintenance a priority.
Benefits of Gemba Academy’s Online Total Productive Maintenance Courses
After completing these Total Productive Maintenance training courses, learners will understand how TPM can be used to eliminate waste areas and set the stage for competitive performance.
Introduction to Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
TPM engages everyone in the organization in activities to minimize all types of equipment losses. The benefits include increased capacity, more reliableprocesses, and elevated skill levels. There are 8 pillar activities in TPM which systematically improve equipment effectiveness while building a robust maintenance system. TPM can be adopted fully step-by-step, or selectively to complement a lean production system.

In this pre-recorded, live training seminar shot at the Peterbilt Manufacturing Training Center in Denton, TX, Mike Wroblewski, a senior lean consultant from Gemba Consulting and the Kaizen Institute explains why Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is not optional for lean thinking companies who rely on machines and equipment to satisfy customer demand. During this course Mike explains what TPM is, and isn’t, while also covering important topics such as the 6 Big Losses and how to measure them using the extremely powerful Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) metric.

Focused Improvement (TPM)
Focused Improvement is a set of activities designed to increase the Overall Equipment Effectiveness, or OEE, of plants and their processes. Learn how Focused Improvement targets the six big losses one by one, the different methods and tools used, and how it builds the stability necessary for other pillars of TPM.

Autonomous Maintenance (TPM)
Autonomous Maintenance activities support smooth and effective plant operations by enabling operators to detect and correct equipment problems early. This also creates the capacity for an organization’s maintenance team to develop planned and preventive capabilities. Learn the difference between basic and optimal conditions, natural and forced deterioration, the seven types of equipment abnormality, and the seven steps for getting started with Autonomous Maintenance.

Planned Maintenance (TPM)
Establishing the Planned Maintenance pillar of TPM improves equipment reliability, reduces cost,and develops the capability of people. Planned Maintenance helps organizations shift from reactive or breakdown maintenance to proactive practices such as periodic maintenance and predictive maintenance. Learn the key 12 activities for establishing Planned Maintenance that are rolled out in 6 phases.

TPM Education and Training
The TPM Education and Training pillar is a key enabler of all other TPM methods, techniques, and practices. By following the step-by-step approach to building this pillar, we design and deploy long-term plans to develop people’s skills that are key to raising motivation, improving equipment performance, and meeting business objectives.

P‑M Analysis is a technique for addressing chronic losses. This approach to cause analysis thoroughly studies the M, or Mechanisms, of a specific problem phenomenon related to equipment, or P. Learn the differences between chronic losses and sporadic losses, the characteristics of P‑M Analysis compared to other common cause analysis approaches, the eight steps for conducting P‑M Analysis, and a typical project team and how they use a storyboard to visualize their work.
