Use this DVD to tap into your equipment’s hidden capacity.
When equipment breaks down in your facility, this leads to longer lead times, more down time, higher maintenance costs, reduced productivity, and frustrated employees. Luckily, this is a common problem—and there are ways to solve it.
This installment of the Lean Training Video Series is narrated by renowned TPM expert John Kravontka and brought to you by Bruce Hamilton and the GBMP team. In it, you’ll learn the four phases of Total Productive Maintenance. The 35-minute video introduces you to the invisible wastes that destroy the productivity of your equipment, and the methodology that helps set you on the path to zero equipment stoppages.
With examples, this video demonstrates that typically, equipment is run at low productivity rates due to defect production, startup losses, minor stoppages, idling, setups, and breakdowns. There are many drawbacks to running in “breakdown mode”; if 95% of maintenance jobs involve fixing equipment after it breaks, and those tasks cost ten times more than preventative efforts, imagine how much time and effort you can save by implementing a program of planned maintenance. The TPM DVD introduces ideas such as standardized work, lubrication excellence, skills matrices, maintenance history, equipment visuals, daily inspection, contamination prevention, and proper lubrication, all in straightforward and clear terms that your whole team will understand.
Once you put these ideas into action, you’ll see an improvement to quality, productivity, and safety in your facility. This is the “10x” power of Total Productive Maintenance; if you implement one idea, you’ll get ten results. That’s what makes TPM, and this DVD, a powerful Lean tool.
