Those who might benefit from attending this workshop include:
- Engineers, managers, supervisors, maintenance support, manufacturing personnel and change agents.
- Organizations at any level of a lean journey, either in the beginning stages or in more intermediate phases.
This workshop assumes you are familiar with basic lean terms or delegates have attended the Lean / Sigma introduction course
Total Productive Maintenance is a new way of looking at maintenance, or conversely, a reversion to old ways but on a mass scale. In TPM the machine operator performs much, and sometimes all, of the routine maintenance tasks themselves. This auto-maintenance ensures appropriate and effective efforts are expended since the machine is wholly the domain of one person or team. TPM is a critical adjunct to lean manufacturing. If machine uptime is not predictable and if process capability is not sustained, we cannot produce at the velocity of sales. One way to think of TPM is “deterioration prevention”. It is a proactive approach that essentially aims to prevent any kind of slack before occurrence. Its motto is “zero error, zero work-related accident, and zero loss.”
ATS courses are given by highly qualified trainers, with practical knowledge, in professional ATS training centres or On-Site. Prior to the course an intake conversation can take place to define the participant(s) and the company’s requirements. Presentations (theory and examples) as well as practical exercises bring the courses to life. ATS courses are interactive; the trainer will always make sure the training contents link back to your situation.
