  • To contribute to the development and technical growth of the operators in charge of Autonomous Maintenance activities.
  • Strengthen work focused on commitments rather than task execution.
  • Purposes from the technical point of view

  • Identify existing failures in the design of preventive maintenance systems that generate economic and reliability losses.
  • Know the TPM approach to improve equipment maintenance strategies.
  • Learn to use the CAPDo Cycle (Check, Action, Plan, Do) as a methodology to improve equipment reliability and radically eliminate breakdowns.
  • Purposes from the management point of view

  • Learn about a new model of principles and practices that help maintenance organizations reach a new level of effectiveness.
  • Develop new skills to coordinate teams through the "conversations for action" method.
  • How to apply visual management in maintenance operations
  • Program designed for:

    Very useful program for maintenance managers, supervisors, factory leaders and managers who are responsible for technical teams in industrial plants.

    Length of the programme:

    The training programme is estimated to last 24 hours. It can be completed within two months.

    The program is designed as follows:

    Five units of study online on PM principles, methodology, tools and management practices.

    Three practices on competencies to lead PM. Each participant must perform and report following the work guidelines provided.

    Performing a self-audit on the progress of PM. A senior TPM coach will return a written report on the evaluation with recommendations and work guidelines.

    This program presents the methodology of the four steps of the TPM pillar Planned Maintenance. It studies methods to improve maintenance strategies, failure information management and methods to improve equipment reliability. In addition, a specific unit on leadership and effective organization of maintenance teams is included.

    This program covers the following units:

    Unit 1. Improvement of planned maintenance.
    Logic to improve the process of preventive maintenance, step-by-step model of the TPM pillar planned maintenance, classification of equipment according to PQCDSM measures, identification of the type of maintenance by components, the process of standardization of maintenance activities, how to support the development of autonomous maintenance, role of the maintenance professional as technical trainer

    Unit 2. Management of breakdowns and anomalies
    Identify the seven types of anomalies in an industrial plant. How to effectively report breakdowns using the 5W + 1H method. Analysis of breakdown statistics and definition of reliability improvement projects.

    Unit 3. TPM methods to improve reliability
    Steps of the CAPDo cycle as a methodology for analysis and elimination of chronic failures. Practical study with the CAPDo methodology using TPM techniques. How to use visual management boards for the management of maintenance improvement projects.

    Unit 4. Development of the steps of the PM pillar
    Structure of the PM pillar in four phases: Phase one or stabilization of the equipment. Phase two or increasing the reliability of the equipment. Phase three or standardizing maintenance operations. Phase four or improving maintenance management. Audits and evaluations of the PM pillar.

    Unit 5. Skills to build and lead maintenance teams
    How to promote real change with the joint participation of the leader and the team. How to reduce resistance to change through structured conversations How to establish a work plan to achieve significant results.
