TPM at Spiraweld

20 Sep. 2016

Kaizen Institute New Zealand (KINZ) ran their latest Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) public training course at the manufacturing premises of Spiraweld Stainless Limited in Auckland. KINZ has been supporting this forward-thinking Small Medium Enterprise with their Lean journey and at the beginning of this year, the call was made to apply TPM in their plant to improve the performance of their value-creating assets. They decided to open their facilities to allow external participants to experience the application of TPM.

Many of the attendees are on their Kaizen Practitioner certification pathway and found value in experiencing this proven methodology to improve reliability and stability in processes. It was interesting to observe how people from the service sector started to realise that the principles of TPM are also applicable to their own organisations.

A TPM workshop identifies the problems and losses related to the assets employed in creating value (products or services). Furthermore, it shows up the potential losses you might experience in the future. Improvement projects are identified at the end of the workshop that will ultimately lead to new standards to be followed. The TPM methodology also creates a framework of discipline to sustain the improvements initiated during and after the workshop. In other words, this KAIZEN™ project turns into daily KAIZEN™ habits.

We wish all participants well with applying their newly acquired KAIZEN™ skills in their pursuit of creating better customer value.
