Proposed by the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance in 1971, TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) is defined as construction of mechanism, on-site and with actual products, that targets business constitutions committed to the dedicated pursuit of production system efficiency (comprehensive efficiency improvement) by preventing all kinds of losses through measures such as zero accidents, zero defects and zero breakdowns throughout the entire production system life cycle, ultimately eliminating all losses through the overlapping small group activities in which all staff members from top management to personnel on the front line throughout all departments, including development, marketing and management, participate.
