Applying total productive maintenance - TPM: principles in the flexible manufacturing systems
2000 (English)Report (Other academic)
The flexible manufacturing systems (FMS's) are applied to get a better productivity , a better process and a product quality and a better flexibility to have better tools to meet the customers demands , and to stay competitive on the international markets. It is important, that these systems are also effectively used and that the utilization rate of the single machine tools connected the system is as high as possible. The new maintenance methods like TPM, total productive maintenance have a very important role to really effective use the highly automated production systems like FMS. In this rapport first the problems , then the failures and operational disturbances are described. The TPM as a possible tool for reaching a higher utilization rate in the single machine tools is presented. Finally some concrete measures to implement the TPM in highly automated production like in flexible manufacturing (FM) are given.
