Total Productive Maintenance

Introduction to Total Productive Management (TPM)

A 3-Day seminar designed to help you Reduce Breakdowns, Stoppages
and Lower your Costs!

Purpose of Seminar:

TPM focuses on getting managers, maintenance personnel and equipment users all working together to prevent equipment problems and reduce expenditures. By giving ownership and responsibility of equipment and processes to the right employees, equipment breakdowns are reduced. 5S provides a systematic approach to setting standards and visual guides for preventing breakdowns and making your equipment run smoothly.

By the end of this seminar, students will be able to go back to their facility and immediately apply what they learned to help keep their equipment up and running. Training like this never costs – it pays!
