Improving Capital Productivity through Maintenance

Improving Capital Productivity through Maintenance Manufacturing companies are under pressure to minimize production costs. Reducing downtime and minimizing maintenance costs are the traditional approach. Improving production equipment effectiveness as prescribed in total productive maintenance (TPM) is a relatively recent development. Outlines improving maintenance productivity through structural audit and improving production equipment effectiveness for discrete type production systems and continuous processes. Suggests continuous improvement of production equipment effectiveness by periodic evaluations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Operations & Production Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Manufacturing companies are under pressure to minimize production costs. Reducing downtime and minimizing maintenance costs are the traditional approach. Improving production equipment effectiveness as prescribed in total productive maintenance (TPM) is a relatively recent development. Outlines improving maintenance productivity through structural audit and improving production equipment effectiveness for discrete type production systems and continuous processes. Suggests continuous improvement of production equipment effectiveness by periodic evaluations.
