Figure 4.7 Seven steps for developing autonomous maintenance

These cover the seven steps of autonomous maintenance, but provide the structure and discipline to link the process to progress the other principles incorporated within the measurement and problem prevention cycles.

One of the key points that the reader should now appreciate is that no rocket science is involved in the concept of TPM: it is basically sound common sense.

The reality of implementation is that both autonomous maintenance and planned maintenance must be implemented in parallel. This is why WCS have developed the concept of asset care to formally integrate production and maintenance stepwise improvement. Unless the actions of the other pillars support their efforts, progress will be slow.
