Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
TPM originally developed in Japan by the Japanese Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM).
TPM stands for:
- T (Total) – Involving all employees at all levels of the organization.
- P (Productive) – Effectively utilizing all resources.
- M (Maintenance) – Keeping the Man-Machine-Material system in Optimum Condition.
Our TPM journey began in September ‘2013 and we can proudly say that, we have successfully started implementing TPM at DRI and SMS. The initiation of TPM implementation at Rolling Mill is also commenced.
