Nowadays, consumers expect manufacturers to provide excellent quality, reliable delivery and competitive pricing. This demands that the manufacturer’s machines and processes are highly reliable. In order to possess highly reliable machines to make sure smooth manufacturing process, many organizations have implemented Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) as the enabling tool to maximize the effectiveness of equipment. Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is used as a measure when evaluating the result of TPM. This paper has found out the difference between before and after the TPM implementation to OEE result. Comparison between before and after the implementation of TPM was carried out to see the difference that TPM can bring to an organization. Elements that constitute the OEE equation have been analyzed and indentified which one that affected OEE result. After identifying, improvement has been made on that element so that OEE result would be improved ultimately. Microsoft Excel was used to analyze data obtained and calculate OEE. Hence, TPM is a useful tool in helping firm to achieve optimal manufacturing process. By being able to achieve this level of maintenance, an organization will be able to reap competitive advantages brought by TPM, thus, producing quality products that manage to satisfy customers and subsequently generating greater profits
