Lean TPM is an accessible, step-by-step guide designed to help you increase manufacturing efficiency through continuous improvement. Based on their experience of working with organizations that have successfully achieved outstanding performance, McCarthy and Rich provide the tools and techniques required to convert strategic vision into practical reality. Packed with real-life case studies and examples to highlight common pitfalls and proven approaches, the book focuses on the continuous improvement that can be achieved within any manufacturing environment by challenging wasteful working practices, releasing the potential of the workforce, and making processes work as planned. Lean TPM contains an integrated route map along with comprehensive benchmark data to enable engineers, technicians and managers to fully explore this potent technique. Unites the concepts of world-class manufacturing, lean and TPM into a single change agenda for continuous efficiency improvement Includes real-life case studies, advice on planning and pitfalls, and valuable benchmarking data from leading organizations New chapter on TPM and management of the supply chain, along with information on advanced lean practices and more implementation examples

Environmental awareness is driven mainly by the scarcity of natural resources and by more strict legal regulations. The modern enterprise policy should look at the relations between economic actions and ecological consequences. Ecoproduction is a new business approach which focuses on the most efficient and productive use of raw materials and natural resources in order to minimize footprints on the natural environment. This book aims to provide the state- of- the- art as well as new ideas of the environmental conscious operations management. The contributors present in the individual chapters problems related to: eco-friendly production technologies; recycling and waste reduction. Scope of topics discussed in this book covers also pollution prevention, energy efficiency. The authors describe problems of information management in complex systems

When capital projects fail to deliver, it is usually not due to technical reasons but a combination of behavioral pitfalls, unclear accountabilities and gaps in design, specification, and/or project-management processes. Early Equipment Management (EEM): Continuous Improvement for Projects explains how well known and award winning organizations avoid these weaknesses by using: Project road maps setting out clear accountabilities for each step of the concept-to-project-delivery process; Progressive design goals for each step to assure the delivery of low life-cycle costs; Processes to codify tacit knowledge, reveal latent design weaknesses, and build high performance cross-functional team collaboration; Project governance processes that systematically raise their organizations ability to reduce time to market for new assets, products and services with higher added value and fewer resources. Hence the books title of continuous improvement for projects. The word Early in EEM refers to the principle of trapping problems as early as possible in the project process when they are cheapest to resolve. That makes EEM relevant to all projects even those that have past the design stages. To support the use of EEM at any project step, the author has designed each chapter as a standalone topic with cross references to other chapters where relevant. This book:- Explains The six EEM project delivery steps setting out the tasks and accountabilities for project teams, project managers and steering committees at each step; How to organize projects to increase project added value through the collaboration of commercial, operational and technology stakeholders The wiring up behind behaviors that contribute to the failure of traditional project management approaches and how to avoid those pitfalls; The use of projects as a vehicle for the development of internal talent and increase capital project added value The systematic development of internal capabilities to deliver flawless operation from day one in less time with less resources How raising project governance capability directly impacts on company wide management competence Uses case studies to explain how to implement the EEM methodology and Describes how EEM principles and techniques applied to product and service development (Early Product Management) multiplies the gains from EEM. This book shows readers how and why EEM works so that they can design their own EEM road map and continuous improvement process for projects.

Lean manufacturing cannot happen in a factory that lacks dependable, effective equipment. Breakdowns and processing defects translate into excess work-in-process and finished inventory, kept on hand "just in case." Recurring minor stoppages force employees to watch automated equipment that should run by itself. TPM gives a framework for addressing such problems, but many companies implement TPM at a superficial level, and the resulting productivity gains fall short of their potential. If your TPM implementation has resulted in posters and logos rather than a rise of productivity, how are you addressing this halt of progress? In TPM for the Lean Factory, authors Sekine and Arai teach you to identify and attack the key equipment-related problems and misunderstandings that make plants miss their lean manufacturing goals. Written for companies with a basic TPM framework already in place, you'll learn three powerful approaches for cutting this waste: The new 5Ss: focusing on standard locations and labeling through the first 2Ss Instant maintenance: mastering quick repairs of minor equipment failures Improved setup operations: organizing the preparation to save time and prevent errors Chapters on cell design, product and process quality factor testing, and daily equipment inspection give you additional weapons for fighting waste and low productivity. For practical application, an implementation overview summarizes the steps for each topic, keyed to a set of 50 adaptable worksheets and examples. A practical and supportive resource, TPM for the Lean Factory extends a fresh vision and focus to help you get top results from your TPM efforts.

This book by Peter Béndek presents a strong case against the current practice of business operations improvement, based on numerous studies from the business world as well as insights from the most prestigious authors of the last fifty years. The author contests the applicability and indeed the relevance of the Toyota Production System and its spin-offs to the Western context, claiming that a revised approach is much better suited to taking our specific cultural conditions into account, while also combining increased transparency, speed, and sustainability of change with a robust value-creating capability. Dr. Béndek argues that this approach can have a far-reaching impact on corporate cultures by offering an all-encompassing learning system, one that provides a more coherent and actionable continuous improvement strategy than conventional approaches. The book offers an important guide to rethinking operations management, both in academia and business practice.
