In this pre-recorded, live training seminar shot at the Peterbilt Manufacturing Training Center in Denton, TX, Mike Wroblewski, a senior lean consultant from Gemba Consulting and the Kaizen Institute explains why Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is not optional for lean thinking companies who rely on machines and equipment to satisfy customer demand.
During this course Mikes explains what TPM is, and isn't, while also covering important topics such as the 6 Big Losses and how to measure them using the extremely powerful Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) metric.
Throughout the course Mike, who definitely likes to have fun while teaching, shares many real life and extremely practical examples of TPM in action.
Mike's name might ring a bell – he's also one of our fellow bloggers over at Got Boondoggle.
