How TPM Can Prevent Breakdowns, Eliminate Manufacturing Delays and Create a Safer Work Environment

An important part of managing the manufacturing process is overseeing equipment maintenance. Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a lean-based approach to managing equipment that helps prevent breakdowns, eliminate delays, and control for product defects. Without smoothly running equipment, even the most detailed processes and competent staff can’t deliver excellent results. Yet a smoothly operating maintenance plan can be challenging–as it requires clear accountability, detailed processes, and excellent communication.

Hoshin Kanri Strategic Planning Workshop

Hoshin Kanri is a strategic planning methodology utilized as a way of aligning and assigning the company’s objectives and priorities through all levels of the organization. Hoshin Kanri is supported by the world-class Japanese thinking of putting principles strategically into practice. Many Toyota sensei’s attribute the roots of Hoshin Kanri as far back as 1645 when Miyamoto Musashi wrote, “A Book of Five Rings”, as a guide to kendo swordsmanship for samurai warriors. One of the greatest quotes stating, “If you are thoroughly conversant with strategy, you will recognize the enemy’s intentions and have many opportunities to win.”

The Hoshin Kanri Process

Hoshin is composed of two Chinese characters, “ho” meaning form and “shin” meaning shiny needle or compass. Together the word “hoshin” means a “methodology for strategic direction setting.” In order for Hoshin Kanri to be successful for any organization, it is imperative that we follow Mushasi’s principle of, “Step by step, walk the thousand mile road.”
