Total Productive Maintenance program approach

by Dutch Operational Excellence Consulting

With this TPM journey the point is to discover and enlarge our own capabilities which we can use in our work and working environment. Not to implement as quick and as many possible Lean methodologies and techniques as a check in the box. 
The point is to create sustainable value

The Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Program is about a step by step approach:

  • Empowerment of the employees (operators and technicians are the driving force)

  • Improvement of the work environment, 

  • Improvement of the machines, 

  • Decrease of cost


We use Total Productive Maintenance tools and methodologies as an accelerant for change processes. While using this it becomes tangible and concrete, and we achieve actual results. Experience shows that especially within production areas a lot of value can be created to sustainably improve the working environment, which enables people to achieve their audacious personal and business goals.

What is Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) in this program

​The ultimate goal of Total Productive Maintenance (or TPM) is to achieve optimal conditions where the people capabilities are being used in an optimal way     and      we strife for zero  accidents, zero defects and zero breakdown.

TPM focusses on the continuous improvement of the effectiveness of equipment by involving the people with these improvement activities. TPM is aiming on bringing and maintaining the equipments in top conditions, to  prevent breakdowns and delays in production processes and thereby increasing the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE). TPM is attacking the cause of the accelerated decline and at the same time creates the correct environment between employees and equipments to create the desired ownership.

The TPM program of Dutch Operational Excellence Consulting is divided in

Example of a training video in Dutch  for the TPM Program Phase 1 adressing the first stage of the Restore Basic Conditions. 

During this video we discuss a small but essential part of our program, in which we want to create the insights with the users to bring the machines, methods, executions,  trainings and materials back to the conditions in which they should be. In the Total Productive Maintenance program this is one of the first essential steps in building the fundament towards Autonomous Teams, World Class Operational Excellence and World Class Maintenance organizations.
