Total Productive Maintenance

TPMmark_130405_RGBThe TPM Awards were established in 1964 in Japan, with the purpose of encouraging development of the manufacturing industry, factories which displayed remarkable achievement in plant maintenance.

Approximately 3,000 plants received TPM Award in Japan and outside Japan over the years.

TPM Awards is under the control of the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM).

In 1989 the TPM Awards were refined to encompass the entire company from the shop floor to the executive boardroom, creating a true companywide commitment to production excellence. As a result, factories which have achieved company-wide efficiency by adopting company-wide TPM are presented with the award.

SMMT Industry Forum Ltd is one of only six worldwide agencies  for the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance, responsible for promoting the development and use of TPM globally.
