TPM Reloaded

***Silver prize for Maintenance book of the year*** $4 shipping world-wide! How do you make more product, produce less waste and motivate your work force all at once? This challenging, innovative and timely new look at Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) demonstrates a new paradigm: move maintenance tasks to Operations, giving accountability for output of the entire plant to the operators themselves. The author demonstrates that effective TPM - TPM reloaded - requires a radical difference in management's view of the worker and (even tougher) a radical shift in the way workers view themselves. Yet the results speak for themselves: more power and responsibility for the workers, a tighter alignment of management and workers' interests, and a better bottom line for those organizations who adopt this new model. Real world examples, guidelines and strategies for implementation will help you navigate from vision to success. This book is referenced in our TPM workshop, but can be purchased independently.

Maintenance Planning, Scheduling and Coordination

Even the best production process will fall apart in the absence of good planning and scheduling of procedures. Well-planned, scheduled and effectively communicated jobs accomplish more work, more efficiently, and with less downtime, all of which translate into higher quality products delivered more reliably and at lower cost. In this book we detail the necessary tasks that go into good planning and scheduliing, plus techniques for scoping out the most complicated of jobs (including flow charts and easy-to-use worksheets). Possibly even more important are our key strategies for implementation and gaining support at all levels, from senior management to the ground floor operators. Drawing from real world experience, the authors detail the steps management can take to make better use of productive capacity and the changes in corporate culture that support these efforts. A vital training document for planners; an excellent educational document for management.
