Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights
video series, this program demonstrates how predictive and preventive maintenance techniques can bring an end to crisis maintenance. You'll see how total productive maintenance (TPM) keeps equipment operating at design specs and gets more output from smaller facilities. Case studies include:
- Delco Remy shows how increases in productivity were gained through teamwork, training, and a sophisticated Computerized Maintenance Management System.
- Loran Cassettes and Audio Products shows how a small manufacturer who is a Q-1 certified supplier, successfully executes TPM techniques. Since implementing its TPM program in mid-1990, daily downtime fell by 29%, daily defects decreased by 22%, and production increased by 20%.
- Miller Brewery's packaging plant where a reliability engineer on staff is responsible for identifying and eliminating recurring problems through equipment redesign or modification.
