Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is an internationally accepted program for improving plant capabilities. The Improve Group conducts training courses in TPM that are based around the concept of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
Recognised as an industry standard system that is used to improve equipment performance and reduce maintenance time, TPM was originally developed by the Japanese Institute for Plant Maintenance.
It offers a complete framework for improving equipment capabilities by using OEE methods to monitor equipment.
Significant improvements in plant performance and communications between operational and maintenance personnel have been reported by companies that have applied TPM programs.
The Improve Group offers a range of TPM related training courses, including:
- introductory training
- an OEE improvement challenge; and
- maintenance excellence programs.
