What TPM Provides
The goal of TPM is the never ending improvement in equipment effectiveness through front line improvement teams. To achieve that the teams need the guidance of leaders (Pillar Champions) who have a clear view of what they want to achieve and a road map for getting there.
This road map guides the development of capabilities to get organised, take control and get better.
Completion of each step on this road map releases time to improve skills and work routines to progress towards zero breakdowns and then transition towards no touch production.
The outcome of the TPM road map is the engagement of all levels in delivering year on year improvement in bottom line benefits.
Where Digitsation Fits in
The real gains from advanced technology are achieved by tapping into the enhanced connectivity it provides to change how people work together.
The connection between the physical and digital worlds makes it easier to spot pain points and take corrective action. Get this right and the joined up digital ecosystem makes it easier for people to deliver higher levels of added value.
This is a journey not a destination. One that builds the capability of the current workforce to use the new ecosystem and encourage their curiosity about what can be achieved with it.
The steps of this journey mirror that of the TPM road map. A stepwise approach developed over 50 years to deliver the full potential of technology.
Unfortunately, those who know what technology can deliver are not always familiar with the powerful TPM focussed improvement toolsets. Similarly, those familiar with TPM are not always aware of how technology can accelerate progress towards industry leading performance.
This course raises awareness of both of these essential partners in delivering the gains from advanced technology. The course also includes a self assessment diagnostic to identify how to smooth the way for the creation of a new ecosystem that will thrive in the rapidly evolving future technology landscape.
