Total Productive Maintenance in a Manufacturing Industry: A Case Study of JISHU HOZEN Implementation


Objectives: To study the effectiveness and implementation of Jishu Hozen (JH) Pillar activity in achieving zero defects, zero accidents, zero breakdown and zero wastages. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A unique approach was adopted based on Action Research. A spiral of cycles involve planning, observing and analyzing. An Action Research team of organization’s personnel was specially formed to carry out the necessary experiments and analysis using the Jishu Hozen pillar of total productive maintenance. Findings: The Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of Alfing has increased over a period of 4 months. But still it has not reached up to World Class Goals i.e 85%. The actual production of the company is very less as compared to the planned production. As a result the performance rating of the machine is very low which affects the overall equipment effectiveness. So the company has to take some measures to increase their daily production as per the capacity of the machine and achieve their targets of planned production. The uniqueness about the study is that Jishu Hozen pillar is used in this study for studying overall effectiveness whereas the other papers reviewed had used all five pillars of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). Application/Improvements: By implementing JH activity, the responsibility and belongingness of the employees is increased and the overall efficiency is increased by 85%.
