2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but in our facility, we were able to sustain the site reliability through the successful implementation of Total Productive Maintenance. Total Productive Maintenance allowed us to minimize equipment downtime throughout the year through the combination of keeping equipment in its base condition and producing clear operational and maintenance triggers to catch problems before they become in-process failures. The talk will go through the initial implementation phase (pre-lockdown) and how we navigated through internal and external challenges in 2020 to sustain the TPM and Reliability activities.
