Total productive maintenance or TPM is an advanced manufacturing technique that focuses on maximizing the Overall Equipment Effectiveness or OEE of any asset or capital equipment utilized in the production of goods and services. While the basic components of TPM have been existence for decades, few companies are able to assemble the components into an overall strategy. Many companies will partially implement some of the components but never realize the full benefits that can be achieved through TPM. In addition, staffs at production area need to make sure that they manage to strike the demand on time. Since the production area conquered by the machine, there will be risk that the machine not work properly, damaged and corrupted. That’s the reason why TPM has been design to assist the manufacturing in production area to increase the performance of the equipments. This case study, we do in order to find out about the difference of the result that affects OEE before and after the TPM being implemented in manufacturing industries. Improvement will be made after the abnormal elements have been detected, so that it can be directly corrected. Analyzing and identify the elements will give impact on the OEE result. The approach methods in this study is experimental study through instruments used to collect data are observation and calculation. To calculate the OEE, Microsoft Excel is commonly be used. Hence, TPM is a tool in helping firm to achieve an optimal manufacturing process. By being able to achieve this level of maintenance, an organization will be able to make such a competitive advantages brought by TPM philosophy, thus producing such high quality of manufacturing product that manage to satisfy customers and subsequently generating greater profits.
