Total Productive Maintenance, shortly termed as TPM, is the concept originated and developed by Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM) Tokyo, since late sixties. JIPM-TPM is the key for the operational excellence for many Japanese companies.

TPM means to achieve high level of productivity, through total participation of all people inside the organisation and then developing self - managing abilities in people and practices. Productivity, in JIPM-TPM means increasing production and reducing cost simultaneously.

TPM is based on zero-loss concept viz., zero break downs, zero accidents, zero defects etc., primarily to achieve high reliability / flexibility of equipment and reduce costs through minimising wastage of man hours, raw material, power, tools etc.

In this program, concepts and various strategies of TPM are explained with real time examples so that the participants will get familiar with TPM concepts.
