A collaborative equipment management system like TPM can guarantee safe, stable operation at low cost for specialized process environments.
Process industries have a particularly urgent need for collaborative equipment management systems, but until now have lacked for programs directed toward their specific needs. TPM in Process lndustries brings together top consultants from the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance to modify the original TPM Development Program. In this volume, they demonstrate how to analyze process environments and equipment issues including process loss structure and calculation, autonomous maintenance, equipment and process improvement, and quality maintenance. For all organizations managing large equipment, facing low operator/machine ratios, or implementing extensive improvement, this text is an invaluable resource.
This book is recommended for anyone implementing TPM in a process industry plant. The material is focused for process environments and on equipment issues such as process loss structure and calculation, autonomous maintenance, equipment and process improvement, and quality maintenance. As it represents the latest thinking on TPM, any manager facing low operator/machine ratios, managing large equipment, or coordinating extensive improvement activities will want to read this book.
