TPM originated in Japan (Nakijma) as a method for improved machine availability through better utilization of maintenance and production resources. TPM is a management process developed for improving productivity by making processes more reliable and less wasteful. TPM is an extension of TQM(Total Quality Management). The objective of TPM is to maintain the plant or equipment in good condition without interfering with the daily process. To achieve this objective, preventive and predictive maintenance is required. By following the philosophy of TPM, the unexpected failure of the equipment can be minimized. To implement TPM the production unit and maintenance unit should work jointly.
