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 defect etc., primarily to achieve high reliability/flexibility of equipment and reduce costs through minimising wastage of man hours, raw material, power, tools etc.
CII in association with the JIPM-S established the TPM Club in 1998 with the purpose of being a National Point of reference for TPM activities and promotion, Consultancy & Research to benefit Indian Industry.
