TPM for Every Operator covers the information that needs to be communicated to operators when facilitating a company-wide TPM initiative. It covers the main aspects of TPM, introducing frontline workers to this important manufacturing strategy that encourages them to participate in and even initiate routine maintenance that can help extend machine life and prevent stoppages. Based on actual implementations, this book addresses the challenges which TPM often raises for operators. Concise and accessible, it can be used as part of an extensive TPM training program, especially when paired with the TPM Guide for Workshop Leaders.


Our TPM implementation team has been looking for an operator-friendly TPM manual that is easily understood and can be used by that team as a reference as they become increasingly effective in their operation. We plan to use TPM for Every Operator as that manual.
