Implementing total productive maintenance

Four phases to zero equipment stoppages
Friday, Nov. 8 Location Code
8:00am-12:00pm Michigan 1BC, East Tower, Concourse Level FW/02

Attendees will be introduced to total productive maintenance (TPM) as a system that will help you put a plan together. Learn about TPM concepts and see creative solutions and best practices from other teams/industries.


Discover a phased process which is a step by step plan to take your maintenance group and production equipment to the next level of operation. These are do-able, bite size steps that will move your maintenance group forward while increasing the production output of your machines. This session will teach you how to:

  • Identify two main causes for 80 percent of equipment failures
  • Evaluate equipment 5S and understanding how 5S ties directly into improved quality, set-up reduction, mistake proofing, etc.
  • Analyze equipment condition and equipment failure history
  • Perform overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) observations to baseline the effectiveness of your equipment and to drive up the OEE percent
  • Calibrate eyes to locate safety issues/problems
  • Develop countermeasures against contamination
  • Develop countermeasures to make equipment more accessible
  • Value measurements: temperature, sound levels, ultrasound, infrared, air speed, and much more.
