Senior management workshop

The objectives of the senior management workshop are essentially to gain senior management commitment to the TPM process and how TPM will help deliver the business drivers and complement or integrate with other initiatives. In more detail, this means the workshop should address the following elements:

• Familiarize senior management with the principles of TPM and the implications of embarking on a TPM programme.

• Review current plans and initiatives and how TPM fits into these and helps to deliver the business drivers.

• Agree a TPM vision for the site/plant/company.

• Set a policy framework to guide improvement and implementation.

• Define a management control system for the programme.

• Define terms of reference for the scoping study.

The workshop should also involve (where appropriate) trade union representatives so that the intentions of working as 'Partners in Change' can be seen to be happening.
