Total Productive Maintenance

Boost capacity and improve quality by increasing your equipment's life expectancy.

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a process to maximize the productivity of your equipment for its entire life. TPM improves efforts in safety, quality, delivery, and cost through the participation of all employees. TPM maximizes your equipment effectiveness, reduces downtime, and improves quality and capacity. Typical manufacturing operations have experienced improvements in the following areas in a relatively short time (6- 12 months).

  • Overall equipment effectiveness (capacity) improvement of 25-65%
  • Quality improvement of 25-50%
  • Maintenance expenditure reduction of 10-50%
  • Percent planned vs. unplanned maintenance increase of 10-60%
