Manufacturing Equipment Reliability Improvement using Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Implementation : A Review

Reza Aulia Sadewa, Haryadi Haryadi, Daryono Daryono


To ensure the continuity of the operation, the reliability of assets must be taken into account. Maintenance is one important aspect that contributes to efficient and effective asset performance. Lack of managing maintenance program can result low productivity and higher operational cost. Due to the limited amount of resources and large number of assets that have to be maintained, the maintenance activity has to be strategize and supported by all company organization level with respect of their capabilities. Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a logical and simple concept that can improve performance. It aims zero failures, zero defects, and zero accidents to gain the maximum overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) of assets. The aim of this research is to determine the core concepts and its practice of TPM from the various literature and use them to assess the current policy related to maintenance in the hydropower plant, whether it embrace TPM practices or not. It also investigate and identify the success factors and barriers in implementing TPM. The purpose of this research is to find the correlation between reliability improvement, maintenance activities, and aspects of TPM implementation. It is found that TPM theoretically can improve overall reliability of equipment by executing maintenance strategy model which is supported by all level of employee and functional divisions of manufacturing organization. Future empirical research is required to prove the concept of TPM implementation in improving equipment reliability. Keywords: reliability; maintenance; total productive maintenance (TPM)
