Total Productive Maintenance(TPM) Implementation Process in Machining Line
The core of this paper is doing a study on CNC machining line of automobile components production industry and coming up with suggestions to implement total productive maintenance on the Machining line. Companies around the world spend a lot of money on buying new equipments to increase production but a little is done to get hundred percent output from the machine for which it is designed for. Small losses in time or small deviations from designed capability are taken as normal machine behaviour. But now because of increased competency levels and demand of quality products at lower costs, buying latest equipment is not a solution unless it is fully utilized. Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a plan which concentrates on total involvement of everyone from top management to all employees to implement a comprehensive maintenance program for all equipment throughout its life. This plan results in maximum effectiveness of equipment, tidier, neat and clean work place and morally boosted employees. In this report over all equipment effectiveness OEE is measured before implementing TPM and after implementing TPM. At the end of the report over all equipment effectiveness OEE is compared with previous results.
