Total Productive Maintenance : The Western Way

€18.95 €0.00( / )
Tax included.
Total productive maintenance (TPM), a Japanese management protocol developed to alleviate production losses caused by machine breakdowns and supporting just-in-time manufacturing policies, has aroused considerable interest in the western world. Based on the author's experience of developing and implementing TPM techniques and training programmes within a wide range of manufacturing, process and utility operations, this book provides a practical explanation of what TPM is and how it can be effectively used as both a demonstrable application of total quality and as a key pillar achieving world-class performance. Emphasis is placed on the need to tailor your TPM programme to suit local, plant-specific needs and is based on the author's experience of seeing TPM at first hand in Japan and then adapting those principles to suit our differing western cultures. The book also contains a wealth of live examples based on case studies in European companies as well as detailed guidance on site roll-out programmes and obtaining a substantial management and supervisory commitment to the TPM process. show more
