Total Productive Maintenance Review: A Case Study in Automobile Manufacturing Industry
Pages : 2010-2016
This paper will review all the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Pillars, TPM Implementation methodology and the contribution of TPM towards improving manufacturing performance.. It will also focus on calculating the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in one of the two wheeler automobile Industry in India. The relationship between various TPM implementation dimensions and manufacturing performance improvements have been evaluated by applying OEE. The study establishes that focused TPM implementation over a reasonable time period can strategically contribute towards realization of significant manufacturing performance enhancements. Set of various techniques like Single Minute Exchange Die (SMED), computer maintenance management system, production planning were suggested to the industry after calculating the overall equipment effectiveness to improve their maintenance procedures and improve the productivity.
