TPM Self-Assessment Guidebook & Tool



The Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Excellence Award is conferred by the Japan Institute of Plant Maintenance (JIPM) to recognize organizations that have attained a high level of manufacturing excellence. The TPM excellence initiative helps organizations to know where they are on the excellence journey and what they need to do to achieve a higher level of performance. This is done through a thorough assessment of organizational performance against the requirements of an internationally benchmarked TPM excellence framework.

Developed by our JIPM-certified TPM consultantthe guidebook can be used to perform the TPM self-assessment process. Use the tool to benchmark your organization's TPM performance in ten areas of evaluation based on the TPM excellence criteria and checklist items for the Category B award.  The total score will give you a baseline of where you are, and the identified strengths and areas for improvement will help you chart an action plan to improve overall performance.
