Implementing TPM



AUTOnomous MAINTENANCE: the heart of tpm

Autonomous maintenance, is an activity of production teams that is the core and key element of TPM (Total Productive Maintenance).

Rapidly reduce critical productivity losses in equipment and improve general performance of production means by at least 50% within 3 to 4 years by involving all the company's functions.

Productivity Europe applies the 7 steps autonomous maintenance deployment structure of JIPM (Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance) enriched by operational experience and advice from its consultants in Europe and USA.


forecasting, managing, mobilising.

Control of equipment operation to move from activity that reacts to events to proactive activity that influences the course of events. To be effective, preventive maintenance should neglect no risks.

It should therefore result from a methodical approach, based on a strict maintenance system and be permanently upgraded by everyone's experience, mainly through auto-maintenance and focused improvements.

Our training module for the development of Preventive Maintenance targets a group of operators, technicians and professionals working in maintenance and technical departments.

During these sessions, participants work on workshop examples and applications and roll out sequences needed to elaborate a preventive maintenance system: prioritisation of installations, choice and follow up of performance indicators, average AMDECs, choice of predictive maintenance techniques, elaboration of maintenance processes and plans, definition of functions, tasks and support material to be set up (or adapted).


Problem solving tools

Productivity Europe proposes different problem-solving approaches, tailored to deal with specific types of problems and the typology of teams required to solve them: CEDAC, Go-Go, PM analysis.

CEDAC problem-solving methodology (Cause and Effect diagram with the use of cards)
developed by Fukuda and Productivity Inc. offers reliable problem-solving methodology perfectly adapted to solving quite complex problems, managed by project teams.

GO-GO problem-solving methodologies (5 Whys- V-P analysis, ..) are simple tools, adapted to everyday problem-solving by natural shopfloor teams. They are aimed at identifying the right solutions to problems through a logical, sequenced and rapid approach.
PM analysis (or mechanical phenomenon analysis) is a systematic, exhaustive and detailed methodology, aimed at project teams, allowing to identify interference between multiple causes having an impact on the operation of installations.


Focused improvements

A systematic and rigorous methodology for optimal equipment reliability. 

Focused improvement makes rapid progress on specific issues. The aim is often to improve OEE and, in particular, machine reliability, which rapidly involves teams already involved in autonomous maintenance.

Our intervention consists in setting up work groups, which may become permanent. These could include support service operators and technicians working on real problems in order to solve major productivity black spots.
