OEE Improvement by Implementation of TPM in Pencil Manufacturing Industry
ABSTRACT : Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a strategy that emphasizes keeping machinery in top shape in order to avoid failures and reduce manufacturing process delays. The fundamental goal of TPM is to reduce the frequency of emergency and unforeseen maintenance incidents. (TPM) is a strategy that emphasizes keeping machinery in top shape in order to avoid failures and reduce manufacturing process delays. The following paper discusses about the implementation of TPM in a Lacquering Machine Department in the Pencil Manufacturing Industry. TPM is implemented in Lacquering Machine Cell, where the Lacquering Machines are connected in a chain by conveyor belts. The success of TPM is measured by Overall Equipment Effectiveness. The losses associated with the equipment’s effectiveness are identified and are worked upon them. The results of implementing TPM in improving efficiency and productivity are clearly observed. The paper is put down in order: Section 1 gives an Introduction to TPM. Section 2 is a Literature review. Section 3 gives detailed steps for the implementation of TPM. Section 4 gives detail about the implementation of TPM in Pencil Manufacturing Company. Section 5 is based on the Before and After OEE calculations. Section 6 discusses results and conclusions.
