Received Date: Jul 19, 2017 / Accepted Date: Sep 07, 2017 / Published Date: Sep 15, 2017
Total Productive Maintenance is a maintenance program which involves a newly defined concept for maintaining plants and equipment. TPM program allows manufacturing units to look for evolutionary changes happened in business environment. TPM is an evolving technique which is followed in the all organization. This helps improve key business process which helps firms to identify key performance indicators. The objectives of the study is to examine the advanced methodologies that can be implemented to bring betterment of the process being used and to compute overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) to analyze maintenance performance of machine and to understand the quality standards and customer expectations over the products manufactured. The Research design taken for this study is Analytical research. The secondary data are collected from annual company records for the month July 16 to Dec 16. The various tools used for analysing the data for this research paper is Pareto chart, Histogram, Why- Why analysis, Fish bone diagram, Pie chart. The findings of this research is OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) has increased due to proper utilization of machine; In-process scrap gets reduced due to development of gauges for measuring the dimension near the machining area and inspection area near the machining center. The suggestion given to the management from this research is Cleaning and Inspection time and machine setting change over time to be reduced to utilize the machine as much as possible to meet the production target and to increase the OEE.
