Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), Total Employee Involvement, Manufacturing Performance


In present highly competitive age, every manufacturing organization needs to improve its productivity to make profit. Productivity improvement depends on the manufacturing performance of the organization which is the function of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) which can be maximized by optimizing three parameters availability, performance and quality through minimizing industrial waste (six big losses). Optimization of above three parameters can be achieved through better maintenance practice by the manufacturing organization that requires a tool/technique to do same. It has been found that Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is one of the effective tool/technique which is aimed to maximize the OEE by optimizing three parameters through reducing the industrial waste. TPM is a resource emphasized maintenance approach possesses the philosophy of "continuous improvement", which may be successfully executed with total employee involvement and the management resolution for continuous practice of TPM. In the present research a case study is pursued in a medium scale manufacturing organization "Arvee Enterprises, Govindpura, Industrial area, Bhopal" with the objective to implement the TPM and evaluating its effects on OEE of plant and OEE of lathe machine and drill machine. Results of study indicate that significant enhancement in the OEE of plant and machines could be achieved by implementing TPM in organization.
