Autonomous Maintenance (Jishu Hozen)


Autonomous Maintenance (Jishu Hozen) 
is one of the most important building blocks in any Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) program. Autonomous Maintenance refers to TPM activities that involve operators in maintaining their own equipment, independent of the maintenance department. 

One of the basic principles of TPM is that operators are the first line of defense against unplanned equipment downtime. Operators and others in daily contact with equipment can use their knowledge and familiarity with operating conditions to predict and prevent breakdowns and other equipment-related losses. They do this through regular cleaning and inspection of equipment, and through team-based autonomous. maintenance activities that tackle equipment-related problems.

Activities in an Autonomous Maintenance program include: daily inspections, lubrication, parts replacement, simple repairs, abnormality detection and precision checks.

The goals of the Autonomous Maintenance program are to prevent equipment deterioration, restore equipment to its ideal state, and establish basic conditions needed to keep equipment well maintained.


Developed by our JIPM-certified TPM instructor, this Autonomous Maintenance (Jishu Hozen) PPT presentation is packed with diagrams, examples and practical tips and can be used to train shopfloor staff participating in autonomous maintenance activities.
