Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
As manufacturing has become more automated and competition has grown, Total Productive Maintenance has been increasingly adopted in both developed and developing country manufacturing operations as a way of improving reliability and reducing costs. This is evidenced by the rise in interest in the TPM Awards presented by JIPM and the integration of TPM in other improvement programmes, as seen in some of the most recent winners of the Britain’s Best Factory awards.
This one day conference will allow you to learn from companies who have implemented TPM in global operations and see how one European plant has developed its TPM programme over a period of fifteen years to become best in class.
TPM has always been focused on gaining a competitive advantage and in a keynote address the Managing Director of JIPM, Mr S Suzuoki, will explain how TPM can be used for sustainable competitive advantage.
Industry 4.0 and Total Productive Maintenance
The fourth industrial revolution, known as Industry 4.0, is set to drive changes in production processes, engineering and the global competitive landscape through the development of digital networks. This presents new challenges to the managers of process equipment, making reliability and the TPM goal of Zero Breakdowns even more crucial.
Researchers from Japan and Europe will outline the latest developments in the digital factory and how TPM programmes are both adapting to this changing environment and providing critical support to the manufacturing process.
What you will learn
This seminar is ideal for senior operations leaders working to improve equipment reliability and reduce costs and also be prepared for the challenges of Industry 4.0.
Whether you are already discovering the reliability issues at the heart of the connected factory concept or engaged in improving your conventional manufacturing operations, this varied programme of speakers will provide informative and inspiring thought leadership.
The seminar has a packed programme including key note speakers from the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM) as well as case study presentations from award winning companies.
