In the market situation when quick response to customer needs is a must, it is unacceptable if the company fails to deliver due to a machine breakdown. In the best case it causes delays and customer dissatisfaction in the worst case the customer will resign to buy our product and order at competitor. Every organization should make an effort to keep machines and equipment in best possible condition. The good support for this is Total Productive Maintenance. All TPM activities are focused on reduction or total elimination of following problems:

  • breakdowns ? long stoppages and costly repairs
  • long changeover times
  • defects and reworks due to machine malfunction
  • long time to stabilize the process after changes (eg. changeovers)

The key for TPM success is management commitment. TPM should involve every employee. Machine maintenance is a key success factor in production so every management level should demonstrate commitment to the program.
