Sustaining TPM: Building a Case For Change
Our Sustaining TPM video seriesis designed to support individuals and organizations to be more effective implementing Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). The series is structured around 4 key implementation steps:
- Gain consensus on strengths and weaknesses
- Build a case for change
- Develop internal expertise
- Develop a strategy
In this video Greg discusses how to build a case for change. The importance of this step cannot be emphasized enough. Without a clear case for change, there will be no TPM implementation; it's as simple as that. This step has shown to be challenging for maintenance, mainly because it requires maintenance to "sell" TPM to management in terms that resonate with them. This means talking bottom line dollars and cents, as well as in systems improvements.
