The TPM basics are at the core of the Industrial Maintenance

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a highly effective approach to managing industrial maintenance in industries with significant investments in machinery and equipment.

Developed in the Toyota group of companies, TPM was introduced as a defined philosophy and metodology in 1971, building on advancements made since 1951.

The foundation of TPM lies in its eight pillars, which provide a comprehensive framework for enhancing productivity, efficiency, and overall equipment effectiveness. The TPM basics are considered in chronological implementation order: autonomous maintenance, kobetsu kaizen and planned maintenance.


  1. Learn how to launch a TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) program.
  2. Learn the TPM basics for the industrial maintenance.
  3. Measure potential earnings with the Kobetsu pillar.
  4. Discover how to make your equipment more reliable.
  5. Build a strategic program to involve the personnel.
  6. Learn how to implement Autonomous Maintenance.
  7. Utilize all the steps of the method with precision
  8. Learn these instruments by implementing in a practical case.

What is this training about

This training delves into the first three TPM basics, providing your collaborators with an in-depth understanding of their application in your company's industrial maintenance services.

The first pillar, Autonomous Maintenance, bridges the gap between engineers and shopfloor operators by empowering the latter to conduct preventive checks on equipment. This approach aims to anticipate and prevent breakdowns before they occur, ensuring optimal equipment performance.

The second pillar, Kobetsu Kaizen problem-solving methodology, transforms industrial maintenance into a continuous improvement engine that systematically enhances the company's key performance indicators (KPIs) over time.

The third pillar, Planned Maintenance, is essential for reducing significant losses in industrial maintenance. This module covers the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM) approach to implementing and operating planned maintenance effectively.

In addition to the three TPM basics, the three-day training will cover other crucial concepts, including Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), the 16 Losses, standards, and Visual Management. These topics will further enhance your collaborators' understanding of TPM and its role in optimizing industrial maintenance processes.
