A companywide approach to improving the effectiveness and longevity of equipment and machines, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a critical component of production line success.
The need for a step-by-step guidelines on how to achieve TPM has been filled with the publication of The TPM Playbook: A Step-by-Step Guideline for the Lean Practitioner. Complete with color images, this new book in The LEAN Playbook Series is ideal for Lean practitioners and facilitators seeking a training tool for use in the work area while improvements are accomplished. Like a football coach, you can use this playbook for quick reference to convey what's needed to achieve effective TPM implementation.
If for some reason you forget a "play", you can easily reference the playbook.
You can follow page by page or go directly to a certain topic and use it to help you execute a particular "play."The book walks you through the process of creating action items and timelines to bring your equipment up to a standard that will be the starting point for TPM.
It describes how to establish the requirements for operators in the newly established TPM program as well as how to create and use Visual TPM boards to communicate machine status. This playbook includes detailed examples, color pictures, and 3D models of actual TPM implementations.
In addition, a combination of short paragraphs and bulleted points walks you through the process of establishing a comprehensive TPM program. Looking for supplemental information or Lean coaching from Chris Ortiz?
