TPM originated in the Japanese manufacturing industry and was one of the principal reasons for the rise of the Japanese automotive industry. It is based on the implementation of basic but important and logical methods using teamwork as a core discipline. This course looks closely at the advantages and disadvantages of TPM, with a focus on the practicalities of implementation. The focus will be on how to make TPM an effective and living tool. 

Delegates will cover the fundamentals thoroughly by practicing the key steps in workshop exercises. The process and benefits of TPM will be addressed in-depth, as well as its pitfalls and requirements. Delegates will concentrate on understanding and managing this technique, defining how to bring significant returns to the organizations which implement them, and how to avoid the problem areas.
