A systematic approach to improving production and quality systems, total productive maintenance (TPM) involves all employees through a moderate investment in maintenance. Therefore, a successful TPM implementation requires support of all employees from C-level on down. Total Productive Maintenance: Strategies and Implementation Guide highlights the importance of effective communication on all levels to successful TPM implementation. It also discusses the role of the right set of tools from the right perspective—and demonstrates how to obtain a healthy balance of both. Authors Tina Agustiady and Elizabeth Cudney recognized a need for better understanding of how to apply and integrate the TPM philosophy and its associated tools and techniques. In this book they build a framework of problem-solving methods and tools from the TPM toolkit that help you understand the problems, develop process improvements, and develop a plan to implement change. They also provide an overview and introduction to the TPM methodology, detailed information on TPM implementation, and in-depth case studies. A major highlight of the book is the inclusion of case studies and applications of TPM that have shown significant improvement in meeting customer requirements and reducing downtime of processes. These in-depth descriptions demonstrate how to successfully apply TPM based on real-world projects from a wide variety of processes. They provide hands-on experience—an invaluable resource when instructing the use of methods and tools in training or in a classroom. And, these case studies give you detailed step-by-step approaches to TPM integration with clear direction from project infancy to completion.

When practiced appropriately, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) can tilt the playing field in your company's favor. It makes similar machines turn out significantly more product (lowering capital costs), with less scrap or waste (lowering raw material costs), more efficiently (lowers labor needed). The work force is more motivated, more engaged, more flexible and more aggressive in seeking improvements. TPM adds the worker's creativity to the equation. TPM recognizes that the employee is the secret weapon. TPM helps unleash their talent, attention and team spirit. You will also see that TPM is a production/operations effort as much as Lean manufacturing, Total Quality or any other company-wide production program. TPM Reloaded is a challenging, innovative, and timely new look at implementing TPM by one of the field's leading trainers and authors. It takes into account the economic upheavals of recent years and demonstrates that TPM is less about moving maintenance tasks to operations than moving accountability for aggregate output of the plant to operators. The book goes on to show that effective TPM û TPM reloaded - requires a radical change in management's view of the worker and even more daunting, a radical change in the way workers view their own role. Joel Levitt wrote this book for managers and supervisors of all types of operations and production, from traditional manufacturing and assembly to mining, refining, smelting, chemical production, as well as for service industries such as trucking and facility maintenance. The concepts of TPM can be applied to any productive effort, as varied as a bus driver (as the operator) or a control room operator aboard a ship or in a refinery. Regardless of where you work, this book can be an invaluable guide for implementing TPM and helping your company achieve greater success.

This book addresses the main challenges in implementing the concepts that aim to replace the regular fossil-fuels based energy pattern with the novel energy pattern relying on renewable energy. As the built environment is one major energy consumer, well known and exploited by each community member, the challenges addressing the built environment has to be solved with the consistent contribution of the community inhabitants and its administration. The transition phase, which already is under implementation, is represented by the Nearly Zero Energy Communities (nZEC). From the research topics towards the large scale implementation, the nZEC concept is analyzed in this book, starting with the specific issues of the sustainable built environment, beyond the Nearly Zero Energy Buildings towards a more integrated view on the community (Chapter1) and followed by various implementation concepts for renewable heating & cooling (Chapter 2), for renewable electrical energy production at community level (Chapter 3) and for sustainable water use and reuse (Chapter 4). As the topic is still new, specific instruments supporting education and training (Chapter 5) are needed, aiming to provide the knowledge that can drive the communities in the near future and is expected to increase the acceptance towards renewable energy implemented at community level. The sub-chapters of this book are the proceedings of the 5th edition of the Conference for Sustainable Energy, during 19-21 October 2017, organized by the R&D Centre Renewable Energy Systems and Recycling, in the R&D Institute of the Transilvania University of Brasov. This event was organized under the patronage of the International Federation for the Science of Machines and Mechanisms (IFToMM) - the Technical Committee Sustainable Energy Systems, of the European Sustainable Energy Alliance (ESEIA) and of the Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences.
