62Team brief

A core team is undertaking a pilot TPM project. The team is made up of:

• Three production personnel (one per shift)

• Two maintenance personnel (one electrical, one mechanical)

The company - Merlin Gun Technology - is planning to introduce TPM across the site (200 personnel).

The pilot aims to develop a practical, model example of equipment operating under TPM. This will support the roll-out of TPM. It will also highlight those issues which need to be overcome to achieve a successful implementation. Specifically, the team will:

• assess the critical elements of the equipment;

• identify what refurbishment is required to put the equipment into good condition;

• develop a practical, model example of equipment in good condition;

• develop an asset care and history recording process;

• identify the main problem areas and develop solutions;

• establish the current level of overall equipment effectiveness and set targets for improvement;

• produce an implementation plan to improve the equipment reliability.
