Total productive maintenance (TPM) is an approach for minimising equipment breakdowns and maximising overall equipment effectiveness within a production facility. Customer-driven operations necessarily embrace the TPM approach which aims to maximise overall equipment effectiveness by eliminating or reducing production time and volume losses in six key areas.

Halting a process as soon as a defect has been identified is known as autonomation or ‘jidoka’ in Japanese. Total productive maintenance (TPM) is an approach for minimising equipment breakdowns and maximising overall equipment effectiveness within a production facility. Customer-driven operations necessarily embrace the TPM approach which aims to maximise overall equipment effectiveness by eliminating or reducing production time and volume losses in six key areas. These are known as the six major equipment losses: • Equipment failure—caused by equipment breakdowns.

Such an interruptive approach, through the use of SPC or otherwise, is an essential element of customer-driven operations. Continuous improvement (kaizen) should identify and eliminate special causes and then focus on reducing the common cause variation to provide more capable processes. As the use of SPC matures and process capability increases, the intensity with which it is used may be reduced. 2 Customer-Driven Processes Upper Control Limit 33 out-of-control X (mean) Lower Control Limit Upper Control Limit R (range) Fig.
