Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) & Continuous Improvement
What is TPM? Total Productive Maintenance is a lean manufacturing approach that drives continuous improvement in the production cycle. 5S, one of the lean tools must be built as a foundation before the 8 pillars of TPM are put in place. TPM focus on eight pillars named, Autonomous Maintenance, Focused Improvement, Planned Maintenance, Quality Management, Early Equipment Management, Learning & Development, Administrative & Office TPM and Safety, Health & Environment
In Autonomous Maintenance, the machine operators take responsibility for maintenance tasks. When maintenance-related actions like safety checks, lubrication and cleaning, are done by machine operators, maintenance technicians will concentrate on more complicated maintenance tasks.
Focused Improvement identifies and eliminates losses commonly encountered in manufacturing processes; as a result, the organisation can increase OEE and improve the efficiency and quality of its operations along with guaranteed minimal losses within the production process.
Planned or preventive maintenance is considered the best way to avoid breakdowns and machine downtime. It aims at improving the effectiveness of equipment by scheduling maintenance tasks to keep every asset up and running to its total efficiency.
Quality management in TPM is all about zero defective products and increased customer satisfaction. Addressing equipment quality issues and implementing countermeasures will eliminate the recurrence of defects. This will result in producing high-quality products every single time.
Early Equipment Management
The objective of Early equipment maintenance (EEM) is to reduce the Life Cycle Cost of equipment. Designing a new machine by incorporating the inputs of those who use it will increase reliability, operability, maintainability, safety and also reduce breakdowns and maintenance.
Learning & Development
Learning and development are essential in TPM as they will help technicians build basic maintenance knowledge and keep a regular check on equipment. It ensures that technicians are well aware of the new machinery and its maintenance operations.
Administrative & Office TPM
TPM also addresses and eliminates areas of waste in administrative functions. Everyone must be focused on making improvements and reducing waste in their operations, improving overall process efficiency from top to bottom.
Safety Health Environmental Conditions
Good maintenance management ensures that the environment is safe and secure and eliminates all unsafe conditions by identifying the root cause of accidents and taking necessary steps to prevent its re-occurrence.
CMMS facilitates each of these pillars and ensures the effectiveness of TPM deployment in a manufacturing facility by identifying problem areas, addressing them and preventing re-occurrence. Combination of CMMS and TPM mobile app provides; Faster Execution Systems, Reduced Error Rates, Improved Efficiency, Enhanced Lifetime of Machinery, Failure Prediction, Zero Downtime and Increased Quality Output.
Core Components Of CMMS (Computerised Maintenance and Management System)
Well begun is half done! The manufacturers have started migrating towards computerised maintenance management from their traditional approaches to deal with the increasing economic competition. Maintenance management has always formed an integral part of the supply chain. Minimal breakdowns with smooth-running equipment within a limited budget will be the goal that every maintenance and facility managers yearn for. So what exactly is this CMMS or the Computerised Maintenance Management System?
CMMS ( Computerised Maintenance Management System) is a one-stop software solution for streamlining asset management, scheduling maintenance, and tracking work orders. CMMS, also known as CMMIS( Computerised Maintenance Management Information System), digitally plans, records, and measures all maintenance-related activities. It has the ultimate goal of prolonging the lifespan of the physical assets with minimum expenses and maintenance and ensures the right thing is done at the right time. The database of CMMS stores and organises all the information to assist the maintenance-related activities.
All maintenance information is brought under an integrated system where the data is stored in a database, making it easily accessible to maintenance operators. No information is lost while migrating from a traditional approach to a modern CMMS, making it more reliable and effective.
CMMS offers a comprehensive solution for all maintenance related activities. It helps the operation teams schedule work-related orders, perform actions like autonomous maintenance, preventive maintenance, and routine inspections, and ensure that the work is completed.
CMMS helps the team manage and execute the orders and maintenance related activities. It also can create forecasts, assess the completion of the work orders, the effectiveness of audits and data analysis to identify and implement improvement activities.
CMMS does not aim to replace the workers with machines. But it can elevate their physical practices, help to overcome their constraints and improve efficiency. CMMS has the ability to perform quicker maintenance management functions in the absence of an efficient operator.
So now that we have a basic understanding of what CMMS is, let's have a look at what the core components of CMMS are;
Work Order Management :
This feature of CMMS keeps accounts of the work request, tracks and manages maintenance-related activities. The work request's progress from the order allocation to the planning, scheduling and completion phases are recorded here.
CMMS perform the following functions in the work order management process
Submission, review, allocation and analysis of the work order
Schedule and activate maintenance
Alerts on the completion of the orders
Add risk assessments, manuals, notes etc., to the work orders.
Advantages of carrying out work order management through CMMS include:
Reducing the downtime: Faster the work order is generated, assigned and accomplished, the lesser is the downtime that the asset is facing, and machines can stay in condition for a longer time.
Organised information: Resources are organised and available to everyone associated, making the results standardised, troubleshooting easy, and making smart decisions to maximise asset health.
Asset Management :
Managing the asset can be tedious when the industry involves many assets. Storing, organising and effectively using the information can prove futile if the assets are not adequately managed. A foolproof CMMS can be a solution for this by performing the following functions:
Creation of the custom fields that are related to the assets like the asset cost, asset health etc
Creation of asset hierarchies: Organising the assets in a parent-to-child hierarchy makes it searchable on a single page.
Creating and maintaining asset profiles that everyone can access.
Tracking the operations and the performance of the equipment or the assets.
Some of the advantages the CMMS can offer through the asset management system are
Audits: Audits are essential for the proper working of the assets. A digital asset profile will be helpful to conduct an audit as the maintenance information and other information are readily available in the CMMS.
Accurate Budgeting: Digital asset profile will contain information about how much maintenance cost is allocated for each piece of equipment and, in turn, help in the capital expenditure forecasting, repair or replace decisions.
Efficient Portfolio Management system: All data relating to the asset management and repairs are available to the technicians to complete the maintenance effectively and safely.
A cloud-based CMMS software helps actively manage the assets across many business locations in real-time.
Maintenance Reporting :
A user-friendly CMMS system is capable of producing customisable reports on real-time maintenance and KPIs. The characteristics of a robust dashboard and reporting system include :
Once built reports are auto-generated the next time so that you don't have to rebuild them.
Reports can be shared in different formats like Excel, pdf etc.
Deep drill-down capabilities to learn exactly what problem the data is showing.
Ability to compare costs and the KPIs between the other facilities and the teams.
The significant advantages of maintenance reporting include
Finding the maintenance's ROI(Return of Investment): Accurate maintenance reporting can help to increase production and reduce costs.
Time-Saving: Prebuilt automated reports eliminate the issue of creating reports by hand or in excel, and hence CMMS can save the time of everyone associated with it.
Identifying problems and solutions: Reporting helps to identify the problem by pinpointing where the issue started and developing strategies to resolve it.
Preventive Maintenance :
Preventive Maintenance helps to sequence and schedule preventive work orders, and they can organise and associate assets across multiple orders. Based on time, usage or triggered events, they can automate work order initiation.
A robust preventive maintenance program can assure the prolonged life and effectiveness of the business assets.
The benefits of using this function include:
Minimising the expense of the emergency repairs
Preventing asset deterioration
Some of the standard CMMS features that can support this preventive maintenance include inspection management, preventative maintenance checklist, maintenance interval setting, performance maintenance and failure detection.
Spare Parts Inventory Management :
CMMS organises the spare parts inventory the right way, which can cut down the cost incurred on the spare parts.
CMMS will perform the following functions :
Track spare parts usage and make accurate inventory forecasts.
Setting up reminders when the stocks of the spare parts go down the line.
Give a basic understanding of which asset is used and if it is needed any longer.
Quickly lookup and order the preferred parts from the vendors.
Advantages of using a spare parts inventory management system
Maintenance costs: CMMS will be able to sync the accurate inventory numbers of the spare parts needed with financial softwares like ERP, which will be reflected in the company's financials.
Cost-effective: Spare parts can add extra costs if the inefficiencies are caused in the purchased inventories. CMMS can cut these additional costs by forecasting the inventory needs and establishing the just in time delivery.
Find missing inventory: Inaccessible inventory is the primary cause of downtime. The CMMS offers a solution by organising exact locations for each part so that finding the missing piece is not hard.
Vendor Management :
Almost all the factories will have some specialised maintenance work that needs to be carried out by a third party vendor. The outsourcing strategy can be beneficial to the organisation if their works and maintenance records are entirely tracked, which can help to avoid the additional costs.
CMMS can offer features like:
Tracking and managing the vendor's information, past works and invoices.
Keeping track of the information about the asset taken care of by the vendor and the spare parts purchased from the vendor.
Giving the correct access to the vendor to get the complete information about the work explicitly assigned to them.
Sensor integration :
An updated version of CMMS will be able to integrate with the condition monitoring sensors. The CMMS can address the sensors and automatically start the work orders depending on the information they receive.
Reporting, Analysis and Auditing :
CMMS can generate reports across the maintenance categories like asset availability, material usage, labour and material costs, supplier assessments etc. This information can be analysed to understand the asset availability, performance trends, Maintenance Repair and Operations(MRO)inventory optimisation and organise data for the audits.
CMMS also facilitates customised analyses according to the specific industry and company's unique requirements. Reporting and analysis usually involve:
Fault Site Reporting
CMMS, through these core components, find application in a wide range of industries like
CMMS simplify the manufacturing maintenance process and automate the scheduling and tracking processes. It also bridges the gap in equipment maintenance and reduces errors due to mismanaged inventory. It helps in the work order management and automatically sends alerts to the facility managers upon a new service request and updates the other work request on time.
