ABSTRACT: In Total Productive Maintenance small group activities are interwoven in each other. Autonomous maintenance is one of the most important pillars of TPM. Autonomous maintenance aims to educate the participants in the concepts & philosophy of autonomous maintenance and to give them opportunity to develop their skills & confidence. In the present work, workings of the selected machines were carefully studied in an industry. Data for past one year have been analyzed. The analysis has revealed that there are 98% good components, 2% rework losses, where the nine most common causes were identified for the machine stoppages. The OEE was 5% and the six big losses represent 35% loss of the product time. Based on the findings, it was recommended to implement a TPM to improve the OEE of the plant.
