Make the shift away from reactive/”breakdown” maintenance and toward a more proactive, preventive maintenance approach by implementing Total Productive Maintenance, or TPM, at your plant.

TPM begins on the foundation of 5S from lean and empowers machine operators to do routine inspections and maintenance tasks. This makes work more engaging and interesting for machine operators, frees maintenance techs to do more high-value and preventive work, and should improve metrics such as OEE, safety, and quality.

In this guide, you’ll learn:

  • What is TPM?
  • The 5S foundation of TPM
  • The eight principles of TPM 
  • How to use OEE as a maintenance metric
  • Tips for implementing TPM 

Of course, Vector Solutions offers online courses on TPM, 5S, and more as part of our online manufacturing & maintenance training solutions, too!
