TPM implementation

various researches have identified different methods to implement TPM. however, most methods revolve around Najajima (1988) 12 steps method. This plan comprise of two sections, organization for implementation and TPM implementation. The first section is responsible for communicating change and adjusting the culture to be supportive. The second section is responsible for the technical implementation.

It is important to understand that change involves technical and emotional parts. Communicating change and promoting TPM to involve everybody can make the emotional change smoother and positive. The technical plan includes task, techniques and methods to optimize the equipment through maintenance to achieve the production goals. having two sections plan will lead to have employees support and management buy-in when technical implementation takes place.

This way of planning major change taught me that facilitating the change through gaining commitment and involvement can lead to higher gain as everybody is interested and as Deming said, quality is everybody's job. When going back to work, it would be useful to implement Nakajima TPM 12 steps. but the more important is that if major technical change is needed adjusting the culture has to happen first.
