Navi Navigation program for the introduction and implementation from TPM to KMU

The aim of the project is to develop a “TPM-Navi” which tackles the existing problems which small and medium-sized enterpises has with the TPM concepts and which enables them to use so the high potentials of TPM.

An accepted and approved  concept for the improvement of a maintenance organisation represents the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM). The execution of TPM enables a manufacturer to produce without breakdowns and failures. But the existing TPM concepts are not applicable to the specific needs of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). TPM-Navi aims to close this gap by providing an IT-based methodology for a TPM-implementation in SMEs. This tool will contain an assessment for analysing the as-is situation regarding TPM within a SME and provides – based on the assessment results – a companyspecific roll-out conception for the TPM-implementation.
