The focus of this course is to review and give participants the basic concepts of how to significantly improve overall process effectiveness using Total Productive Maintenance techniques.  The course is designed to help participants understand the elements of the TPM process and how it is used to reduce downtime related to breakdowns, extend the life of equipment by reducing accelerated wear, and improving the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) by improving availability, performance, and quality.  Participants will also learn where it is appropriate to apply TPM and how to tie the actions to overall improved company performance.  The course will also review the other techniques required to support the TPM process, such as 5S, standard work, and visual management, and problem solving.  Participates will apply the principles to hands on exercises to reinforce the learning.
