About the Training

The goal of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is to involve all employees in a company through overlapping small groups, focusing on overall profitability through zero oriented approach on losses, breakdowns, accidents, defects and pollution. TPM aims at maximizing the productivity and efficiency of equipment in manufacturing and other industrial processes.

TPM was developed in Japan in the 1960s and 1970s, and has since been widely adopted by companies around the world. It started initially as a Maintenance driven initiative. Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM), has been relentlessly involved in developing TPM to its present state where it is respected globally. TPM encompass all business processes, all type of Organizations, including Service industries. Hence the TPM Gurus also address it as Total Productive Management

The TPM approach is based on the following key principles:

  1. Zero breakdowns: eliminating unplanned downtime due to equipment failures, by taking a proactive approach to maintenance.
  2. Zero defects: eliminating defects in products, by improving the quality of equipment and processes.
  3. Zero accidents: eliminating accidents and injuries related to equipment, by improving safety measures and training.

The online training classes will commence soon for the batch 2024, and will run for 10 interactive sessions. The classes will be conducted daily from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM IST, and will last for 2 hours per day. If necessary, the number of sessions may be extended. (Timing can be flexible with mutual understanding within the group of participents)
