Total Productive Maintenance in Your Digital Landscape.

CMMS/TPM Maintenance Software

The Eight Pillars of Total Productive Maintenance include:

  • Autonomous Maintenance.
  • Planned Maintenance.
  • Quality Maintenance.
  • Focused Improvement.
  • Early Equipment Management.
  • Training and Education.
  • Safety, Health, Environment.
  • TPM in Administration.

The Connections of CMMS/TPM Maintenance

Total Lean Management (TLM) Software can be used for multiple aspects of what should be happening in an integrated digital landscape of interconnected processes.

Whether you are trying to meet objectives within quality management system software, risk management software, CMMS Maintenance Software, or Material Management software, having a foundation of integrated modules to build your solution on enables the most options to ultimately meet the needs of the employees tasked with implementing, managing, and continuously improving these systems.

Total Productive Maintenance is a principle based methodology, and holistic approach to equipment maintenance aimed at maximizing production by eliminating all the causes of equipment downtime, such as:

  • Breakdowns.
  • Delays.
  • Defects.
  • Accidents.

One of the key aspects of the TPM program is that it emphasizes the necessity for everyone who is involved with equipment in any way to be responsible and proactive about maintenance.  This includes:

  • Operators.
  • Maintenance personnel.
  • Management.

This principle puts the responsibility of routine maintenance in the hands of the equipment operators.  It provides operators with greater ownership over their equipment, as well as better knowledge so that issues can be identified as early as possible.

This also has the effect of giving maintenance personnel more time for high-level tasks.

Planning maintenance based on predictive and/or measured failure rates can help minimize longer interruptions due to failures.   By conducting the maintenance that will prevent known failures during times when production is not scheduled can lead to 100% availability from your production equipment.


Equipment (CMMS / TPM) Calibration

When production or testing equipment plays a role in your final product, it is critical to keep that equipment calibrated against a dependably-known and unvarying measure.

With repeated use, all equipment degrades with respect to its accuracy and precision, and getting the timing right for maintenance and calibration activities makes a huge difference in avoiding non-conformances as well as managing resources and reducing costs.

This pillar of TPM involves designing error detection and prevention into the production process.  It also specifically targets issues with improvement projects focused on eliminating the root cause of issues.


CAPA Software

TLM Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) software helps your company drive continuous improvement by orchestrating your employees through a regulatory compliant process of identifying, anticipating, and correcting  nonconformances that might prevent your company from meeting customer requirements, while managing the possibility of introducing new risks. 

TLM CAPA Software lets you:

  • Drive continuous improvement. 
  • Maintain compliance and mitigate risk.
  • Create a customized strategy for trend analysis.
  • Automatic alerts of new CAPAs for real time collaboration.
  • Supports multiple root cause analysis strategies.
  • Vendors can respond to SCAR via secure email link.

Use small cross functional teams to collaborate on developing incremental improvements in equipment operation. 

Both FMEA and the Meetings module allows for capturing team members involved with the project and can link to other modules in  the CMMS Module set as needed.

When production or testing equipment plays a role in your final product, it is critical to keep that equipment calibrated against a dependably-known and unvarying measure.

With repeated use, all equipment degrades with respect to its accuracy and precision, and getting the timing right for maintenance and calibration activities makes a huge difference in avoiding non-conformances as well as managing resources and reducing costs.

When a company can have an impact on equipment design, this category aims at taking knowledge gained in previous categories and applying it towards improving the design of new equipment.


TLM Change Management Software

TLM Change Management software can do both, 

  • Manage engineering change requests (ECRs)  for parts/products and the various document changes needed for a product life cycle management (PLM) project, or
  • Handle people and process changes and the various obstacles involved with organizational change from the human perspective as with changes that use the five ADKAR® Model of change elements.

Knowledge gained from TPM activities as well as knowledge from company procedures, equipment manufacturers, or any other source that can help prevent operator errors or improve TPM activities should be identified and employees evaluated for knowledge gaps so that training can be arranged.  

Training should also include: 

  • Daily operating skills to include identifying emerging problems.
  • Training managers on TPM principles as well as employee coaching and development.
  • Techniques for proactive and preventive maintenance.


Training Management Software

TLM Training Management Software has plenty of Easy Buttons for a variety of training related tasks which streamlines the training process ensuring your company’s compliance is maintained and your team is up to date with new processes released Well organized training information allows supervisors to both allocate training resources to meet individual needs, but do so with broader company goals in mind.

Eliminating potential health and safety risks to create an accident-free workplace needs to be captured in company policy and procedural documents where decisions are captured that are essential for maintaining a safe workplace for your employees.


Document Management Software

TLM Document Control software leverages the effort spent on your company’s documentation and elevates it beyond just quality and compliance into a Total Lean Management system.

Managers, process owners, or upstream QMS users can now save time, prevent errors, reduce risk and control variation by using TLM Document Control software to streamline the creation and delivery of critical documents to the downstream consumers of this important information.

Accessible via the desktop or web app access from either on-site or cloud hosted installations, TLM Document Control Software delivers the features needed at your company to manage what is arguably the nervous system and life blood of your organization, the documents that represent your company’s knowledge  base.

Equipment availability can also be impacted by administrative issues.  To avoid these issues, a company needs solid workflows for:

  • Scheduling maintenance.
  • Assignment of qualified technicians and operators.
  • Purchasing replacement parts or maintenance supplies.
  • Obtaining parts, materials, or services from approved vendors.


Maintenance Work Orders

The Maintenance Work Order module in Total Lean Management software extends the functionality of the equipment module and provides additional flexibility for managing a variety of assignments that need to be scheduled by facility maintenance personnel.

TLM Maintenance Work Orders support the variety of activities needed to include:

  • Scheduling planned or unplanned activities.
  • Provides a web portal for maintenance requests.
  • Linked to Equipment Records for easy assignments.
  • Approved Inspection templates by type and revision.
  • Approval controls.
  • Work Order Templates.
  • Linked Documents.
  • Linked suppliers.
  • Cost Information.

There is Only One Type of Quality Management System


Over the last 20 years TLM has discovered a very basic truth when it comes to information management systems such as your eQMS, no two companies have the exact same needs.

In fact, the two biggest risks in the software selection process is either selecting software that is not flexible enough to manage information that is unique, and important to your workflow, thus forcing work arounds, or other concessions that effectively add waste to your business.

The other mistake is getting stuck with comprehensive, but inflexible systems due to their web based cloud hosting design, which forces a one size fits all approach to meeting customer needs.

And while one size might fit some, it might not fit all your needs when in the long run your understanding of those needs evolves and improves.

Total Lean Management Software, by definition, recognizes this fact, and addresses it through a dual technology, upstream / downstream user landscape approach to meeting the needs of both your upstream and downstream user types.  This is combined with our tiered approach to addressing newly discovered customer needs, making sure the software works in alignment with your business systems the day after your purchase, and for all the years ahead.

These measures include:

Custom fields

Allows you to adapt the software to your company’s terminology.

System Settings

Allows you to choose which features are applied to your process.

Rapid update cycles

Incorporating employee feedback into the continuous improvement cycle creates a synergistic effect on moral, engagement, and productivity.

Development Projects

This capability provides insurance that your system will never leave you stuck after discovering unknown needs after implementation.

High levels of interlinking

By implementing and combining modules in way that might be unique to your business or work flows.

World class customer support

Evolution is a team effort, and the whole team behind TLM enjoys helping companies comply with regulations, manage risk, continuously improve, and maintain a steady growth rate.

Help Files can be Linked to your Controlled Work Instructions

This unique TLM feature allows you to link individual screens in TLM to your own controlled procedures or work instructions for that area of the software (if needed).
