Moving from a reactive maintenance organization to a proactive maintenance organization requires constant improvement in the way the maintenance process is managed. To reach this goal, you must build a maintenance organization unburdened by firefighting and focused on preventive, scheduled and corrective maintenance activities. For it is only when you have achieved a stable maintenance operation that you can reach your overall improvement goals.
For over thirty years Productivity has been helping companies improve their maintenance operations through the implementation of TPM. Working in concert with the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University, Productivity has combined years of TPM implementation experience with the resources of one of the top business schools in the country to create the Total Productive Maintenance Certification Program.
Over four non-consecutive weeks you will participate in a series of learning modules, then in between the weeks of training you will be required to apply the methods to operations at your own company.
Program Requirements and Information To be considered for this program, you must be affiliated with a manufacturing or service organization actively pursuing process improvement techniques. You should also have a fundamental understanding of TPM and supporting Lean techniques.
Participants who successfully complete the four-week training and mentoring program, pass the certification exam and demonstrate successful implementation of the techniques in their own facility are then certified by Productivity, Inc. and the Fisher College of Business as TPM Managers.
Program participants will:
- Establish and customize an internal TPM Implementation strategy.
- Properly use machine performance data to identify and execute a Tactical Action Plan for success.
- Justify and implement a complete maintenance planning and scheduling process.
- Conduct and lead Autonomous Maintenance Kaizen events.
- Establish a baseline for data collection and understand the use of the metric of OEE.
- Understand the need for and conduct breakdown analysis reviews.
- Organize and control spare parts.
- Use the principles of Early Equipment Management to guide, mentor, and coach project managers, department managers, and team leaders in the use of specific improvement tools and methods.
