Total Productive Maintenance.
4 M Condition:
Ensuring product is manufactured under optimum conditions for the machine, material, method and man.
Makigami Analysis is a method of concentrating on business processes and seeks to improve process efficiency by eliminating waste in the process.
Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF):
MTBF is a measure of equipment reliability and a glide path to zero breakdowns.
Mean Time To Repair (MTTR):
MTTR is a measure of the ease of repair of equipment and the efficiency of our maintenance labour.
OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness):
OEE is a performance metric compiled from three data sources of the machine (or process) being measured. The three data sources are Availability, Performance and Quality.
Availability – Compares the actual time a piece of equipment is actually available to produce parts in comparison to the planned available time.
Performance – Compares the actual amount of product processed relative to the maximum amount that could be processed within the available production time.
Quality – The proportion of the product from a process that is right first time with no scrap, rework or concession to accept outside process tolerances.
PM Analysis is an advanced problem solving tool that focuses on understanding the Phenomenon (P) and the Mechanism (M) of a defect or failure.
Condition Based Maintenance:
A Condition Based Maintenance approach looks to understand the current condition of components and how close to failure those components are to determine when physical maintenance should take place. Non-invasive techniques such as thermography, vibration analysis or lubricant analysis are used to measure parameters that directly indicate the level of wear.
Maintenance Prevention (MP):
This term means designing and building equipment that is excellent in reliability, maintainability and economy from the outset.
Time Based Maintenance:
A Time Based Maintenance approach triggers the maintenance of components at a set frequency defined by component history and is managed using a maintenance calendar. The calendar is updated as improvements are made and maintenance data increases.
