Event description


A Common Interest Work Group presented by SIRF Roundtables SA.

Attendance is free for people from member companies of SIRF Roundtables in SA.

If Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) came with a motto, it would be "Enhance the volume of the production, employee morale and job satisfaction while reducing overall maintenance costs." Sounds great, right? So why isn't everyone already doing it?

Well, the key is in that first word, "Total". There are eight pillars to TPM, built on a foundation of 5S and teamwork, and at least half of the pillars require maintenance leadership and individual responsibility to succeed. Indeed, “Focused Improvement”, “Planned Maintenance” and “Quality Maintenance” are nearly 100% the maintenance team’s responsibility.

TPM Pillars

Join your peers in this unique discussion of TPM systems. We will discuss such points as:

  • Maintenance components of OEE
  • Focused Improvement “Kaizen” events on problem equipment
  • Instituting quality measures for maintenance
  • TPM and Mobile CMMS

About SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups

All SIRF Rt events are designed to provide a safe environment for open discussion with peers on the topic of interest they are working on, in and around. SIRF Rt Common Interest Work Groups (CWIG’s) provide the best forum for peer-to-peer learning and best practice sharing. Participants are asked to bring something for ‘show and tell’ about the topic of the day as it applies at their organisation – it could be a full presentation, a few photos, a brief descriptions of their current efforts, a couple of charts or graphs – anything that will help improve the discussion or other participants’ understanding of your workplace. After each company shares the deeper discussion follows, guided by our practiced facilitators.
