Maintenance costs can account for 15 to 40 % of total manufacturing costs. These costs can be minimized by the proper maintenance management. Quality and Maintenance of manufacturing systems are closely related functions of any organization. Today’s competitive environment requires much more effective equipment management. Total productive maintenance (TPM) and Total Quality Management (TQM) are the new approaches along with other concepts to achieve World Class Manufacturing system. The goal of the any TPM program is to improve productivity and quality along with increased employee morale and job satisfaction. In this paper experience of implementing Total Productive Maintenance is shared and investigated for an industry’s particular part known as Bright Bar shop. Overall Equipment Effectiveness is used as the measure of success of TPM implementation. The various losses linked with the overall equipment effectiveness are determined. The TPM pillars are implemented in order to eliminate losses and to improve productivity. The study found that focused TPM implementation over a sensible time period can advantageously contribute towards understanding of significant manufacturing performance improvements.
