Focused Equipment Improvement (FEI) is one of the pillars of TPM. This book gives shopfloor TPM teams, including production workers, maintenance technicians, engineers, and managers, a strong framework for further improving equipment performance. As distinguished from autonomous maintenance, in which the main goal is to restore basic conditions of cleanliness, lubrication, and proper fastening to prevent accelerated deterioration, FEI looks at weaknesses that everyone previously thought were unavoidable. In Focused Equipment Improvement for TPM Teams you will learn skills for equipment improvement. The book includes: a simple and powerful introduction to P-M Analysis, hints for unraveling breakdown analysis, numerous ideas for simplifying and shortening setups, ideas for eliminating minor stoppages and speed losses, basic concepts of building quality into processing, and real-life examples from a leading machine tooling company.
