  • Course Overview

    TPM involves the capabilities of the whole workforce to ensure effective and sustainable improvements are implemented. Improvements to the organisation are made by improving the two core elements of people and equipment.

    TPM brings maintenance into focus as a necessary and vitally important part of the business. It is no longer regarded as a non-profit activity. Down time for maintenance is scheduled as a part of the manufacturing day and, in some cases, as an integral part of the manufacturing process. The goal is to hold emergency and unscheduled maintenance to a minimum.

    Implementing TPM establishes processes and metrics that focus attention on minimizing the non–value-added tasks. The resulting increase in productivity applies not only to the equipment, but to the people working in the manufacturing system as well.


Training times can be arranged accordingly in order to cater for the client’s needs.
