Total Productive Maintenance, Overall Equipment Effectiveness, Availability, Performance rate and Quality


Manufacturing organizations in today’s India have evolved to the contemporary improvement toolkits to drive their continuous improvement journey. These organisations are built with huge investment and further more costly to operate and maintain. In today’s global economy, the survival of companies are depends on their ability to rapidly innovate and improve their manufacturing system. If manufacturing systems are often operated at less than their full capacity or waste generated due to the failure shutdown of facilities will results in low productivity and high operating costs. TPM is a one such standard philosophy, which concentrates on productivity improvement, primarily by way of maximizing the availability of equipment. Total productive maintenance is a comprehensive strategy that supports the purpose of equipment improvement to maximize its efficiency and quality of the product it produces. T.P.M. is a world class enabling tool, which is process and result oriented. T.P.M. must be use by manufacturing industry as it encourages production and maintenance to work as equal partners. This research work deals with study of TPM and Manufacturing performance of a manufacturing industry. Methodology has been structured to obtain best possible results based on target objectives. After finishing of detailed literature survey, a manufacturing industry is selected for data collection and TPM analysis work. By visiting this industry both primary and secondary data’s are collected. Values of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) are calculated by standard methods. By scheduling method of data collection four TPM pillars are analysed by framing questions. Finally all required results are obtained and analysed properly for obtaining conclusions.
