To deploy a Total Productive Manufacturing (TPM) system we recommend 6 steps:
Often abbreviated as ‘TPM’ and also known as Total Productive Manufacturing, TPM is a system that unlocks the capability of people and machinery. Great TPM will provide a framework where physical assets are introduced, managed and retired with a plan for their full lifecycle. One of the primary drivers for TPM is to improve the reliability of equipment and therefore the company.
TPM is about establishing the correct relationship between people and their equipment in order to create ownership. It is also about unlocking our productive capacity by unlocking the potential of people. TPM is also about improving flow through the use of appropriate Lean Tools & techniques.

The 11 Step TPM Model developed by S A Partners has become a benchmark for excellence. This model has been deployed in companies worldwide. The 11 Steps are identified in our useful download and also form the basis of our SHINGO award-winning publication TPM: A foundation of Operational Excellence.
We recommend that all organisations begin their TPM transformation journey with a benchmarking assessment at their site. Our assessments can be delivered at either a Macro or Micro level. The assessment will look at understanding your current state and where you are against industry best practice. The assessment can then be used to support the development of a sustainable TPM strategy and programme for your organisation. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Manufacturing organisations are under pressure to increase productivity and improve flexibility & responsiveness to customer needs. Changeover optimisation is a means of improving performance to create a more flexible manufacturing environment. Equipment flexibility & responsiveness are core requirements of all modern manufacturing thinking and largely determined by process changeover capability.
