Agilent Technologies, formerly Hewlett-Packard's Test and Measurement Division, operates an integrated circuit fabrication plant in Fort Collins, Colorado. Guided by Masaji Taijiri, the author of 7 Steps to Autonomous Maintenance, author Jim Leflar and his team at Agilent developed a complete TPM program for the complex equipment on their shop floor. Drawn from these experiences, Practical TPM is a must read for anyone who wants to begin successful TPM implementation.

  • Part I explains the fundamental concepts of TPM, including the six basic principles of TPM, the goals of TPM, cultural changes resulting from TPM, and the keys to successful implementation.
  • Part II — the heart of the book — describes, in step-by-step detail, the evolution of Agilent's TPM program. Each phase is clearly defined and demonstrated; the working tools and systems developed by the Agilent TPM team in the process are discussed at length.
  • Part III focuses on developing a vision and a strategy for your own successful TPM program. Replete with annotated photographs and illustrations documenting Agilent's successful program, Practical TPM: Successful Equipment Management at Agilent Technologies offers an invaluable roadmap to TPM implementation.
