Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a business process improvement method, developed from the perspective of maintenance management. TPM concentrates on productivity improvement, primarily by way of maximizing the availability of equipment.
To do that, small multidisciplinary teams improve step-by-step the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of their machines or production lines. TPM was first applied by the Japanese company Nippondenso, a supplier to the automotive industry. Later the method was further developed by the Japan Institute for Plant Maintenance. In the European Union, Unilever is one of the biggest propagandists of TPM. This food multinational has used this improvement method for over 15  years, during which it has grown into an overarching process management system. The Finnish company Outokumpu, among many others, adopted a similar approach.


TPM, with its origins in Japan, is a company-wide equipment management program that emphasizes the importance of people, a 'can do' and 'continuous improvement' philosophy and the importance of production and maintenance staff working together. Some of the documented results of implementing TPM include:

  • Manufacturing equipment uptime: up 40%
  • Unexpected equipment breakdowns: down 99% • Equipment speed: up 10% • Defects caused by equipment: down 90%
  • Equipment output (productivity): up 50%
  • Maintenance costs: down 30%
  • Return on investment: increased several hundred percent
  • Safety: approaching zero accidents
