Course overview   

Autonomous Maintenance (AM) is the most distinctive feature of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), and for many the hardest to implement as it involves changes in culture, roles and responsibilities.

It has two fundamental aims, the restoration and maintenance of equipment in optimum condition and the development of production team skills and engagement, leading to increased equipment reliability. This workshop will demonstrate the importance of Autonomous Maintenance and give you a proven process to implement Autonomous Maintenance in your plant and increase equipment reliability and performance.

Who should attend?   

Primarily aimed at operations leaders and plant managers wishing to implement Autonomous Maintenance in their plants, the workshop will also be of interest to engineering and maintenance leaders introducing or supporting TPM processes.

Benefits and Learning Objectives   

Attendees will gain an understanding of the purpose of Autonomous Maintenance, its function within TPM and how to introduce the process to a plant. Those struggling with AM implementation will gain insights into the keys to successful implementation.
