The eight pillars of TPM

  1. Continuous improvement: application-related elimination of the 16 types of loss according to JIPM (Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance).
  2. Autonomous maintenance: The system operator should carry out inspection, cleaning and lubrication work independently in the first step and also small maintenance work in subsequent steps.
  3. Planned maintenance: Ensuring 100% availability of the systems as well as identification of Kaizen actions by maintenance.
  4. Training and education: To qualify employees as required to improve their operating and maintenance skills.
  5. Start-up monitoring: Realizing an almost vertical start-up curve for new products and systems.
  6. Quality management: Realization of the “zero quality defects” goal for products and systems.
  7. TPM in administrative areas: Eliminate losses and waste in non-manufacturing departments.
  8. Occupational safety, environmental and health protection: The implementation of the zero-accident requirement in the company.
