8 pillars of TPM

8 pillars of TPM

8 pillars of TPM (Eight Pillar of TPM) – to implement the concept of TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) in a manufacturing company, needed a strong foundation and solid pillars. The Foundation of the TPM is 5S, while the main pillar of 8 pillars of TPM or usually called with the 8 pillars of TPM (Total Productive Eight Pillar of Maintenance). 8 pillars of TPM mostly focused on proactive and preventive technique for improving the reliability of machinery and production equipment.

8 pillars of TPM (Eight Pillar of TPM) such as:

Autonomous Maintenance

Autonomous Maintenance gives responsibility to the operator such as routine maintenance cleaning the machine, lubrication/oil and awarding of inspection machines. Thus, the operator or the worker in question has a high sense of ownership, increases knowledge worker to the tools used. With the pillar of Autonomous Maintenance, machinery or equipment of the production can be ensured cleaner and lubricate well as well as identify potential damage before the onset of more severe damage.

Planned Maintenance

A pillar of the Planned Maintenance schedule maintenance tasks based on the level of damage ratio is unheard of and/or the extent of damage predicted. With Planned Maintenance, we can reduce the damage that occurs suddenly and can better control the level of damage to the components.

Quality Maintenance

The pillars of Quality Maintenance discuss quality issues by ensuring equipment or production machines can detect and prevent errors during the production takes place. With the ability to detect this error, the production process to be quite reliable in producing products according to the specifications on the first time. Thus, the failure rate products will be controlled and cost of production becomes increasingly low.

Focused Improvement

Form a working group to proactively identify the machine/equipment work with problems and provide solutions or proposals-proposals for improvement. Working groups in the conduct of Focused Improvement can also get talented employees in support of the company's performance to achieve the target.

Early Equipment Management

Early Equipment Management is a pillar of the TPM using the experiences of previous repair and maintenance activities. To ensure the new engine can achieve optimal performance. The goal of this pillar is to make the new production equipment or machines can achieve optimal performance in the shortest-in a nutshell.

Training and Education

The pillars of this Education and Training needed to fill the gap of knowledge while implementing TPM (Total Productive Maintenance). Lack of knowledge towards the tool or machine that he can cause damage. To the equipment and lead to low productivity work that ultimately harm the company.

With enough training, the ability of the operator can be improve. So that it can perform basic maintenance activities while the Technicians can be train. In terms of increasing its ability to conduct preventive care and ability in analyzing damage to the machine or equipment. Training at the managerial level can also enhance the ability of Managers in guiding. Even and educating the workforce (mentoring and Coaching skills) in the application of the TPM.

Safety, Health and Environment

Workers must be able to work and are able to exercise their functions in a safe and healthy environment. In this Pillar, the companies are required to provide a safe and healthy Environment as well as free from dangerous conditions. The goal of this Pillar is to achieve the target of workplace "Accident Free" (workplace free of any accident).

TPM in Administration

The next pillar in TPM concept is spreading into the administrative functions. The purpose of the pillars of TPM in this Administration is so that all parties in organizations. It have the same perceptions and concepts including staff administration (purchasing, planning and finance).
