TPM Knowledge management

Total productive maintenance is not just only maintenance it is more than that. I am not selling TPM here, but surely as mentioned in my previous blogs it is something that will change our own habits if we follow it in our working place. But I started taking some of the steps which would help me from now, so that It would be easier for me to implement it in future in my working place or to work on it if required.

So how TPM helps in managing knowledge? It helps in many ways. At the stage of implementation I went through many such tables which is to be maintained while implementing TPM, hence we call it as storing data. Knowingly or unknowingly we maintain our records and this is storing of data. TPM is for continuous improvement, hence proper data collection would let us to know where we need to improve. And during this process top managment would ask employees and would guide them to know what are the areas for improvement. This would lead to knowledge sharing. And after that improvement activies start, and because previous data has been recorded it would be easier to go through it and not to make same mistakes. This is applying knowledge gained. And this process continues as while impoving also we are maintaining records and same process continues. So in general if we are implementing TPM, no other measures needs to be taken. Only thing is top management should have controll on the activities employee perform and should guide them to follow right path.

And in doing this automatically learning would be followed and again this would become routine with employees so this would spread everywhere.
