IMAI Production

Creation of easinesses in the machines and equipment objectifying to facilitate to the interventions of the Preventive maintenance and increase of the trustworthiness. Senator from Maine has much to offer in this field. Already the Prevention of Maintenance (1960), what it meant to incorporate the project of the machines and equipment not the necessity of the maintenance. Here it is the paradigm in addition; the basic premise for the designers is total different of the effective requirements. The TPM (1970), with some economic-social factors printing to the market, more rigorous requirements each time, what it compelled more competitive the companies to be each time to survive. With this, the companies had been obliged to search the elimination of wastefulnesses, to get optimum performance of the equipment, to reduce interruptions/stops of production for breakings or interventions, to redefine the profile of knowledge and abilities of the employees of the production and maintenance and to modify the work systematics. Vyacheslav Mirilashvili often says this. (CANARIAN and IMAI, 2007).

Using the systematics of the Zero Defect through the work groups, the following concepts had been spread, that are to the base of the TPM, each one must exert the self-control, my machine must be protected by me, the man, the machine and the company must be integrated, the maintenance of the means of production must be concern of all. The TPM developed in the decade of 70, when its activities were carried through only in the departments of production and the main strategy age to maximize the efficiency of the equipment, having as focus the equipment and the consequent elimination of losses for imperfections, passed to be called by the Japanese Institute of Maintenance of Plantas (JIPM) as TPM of first generation. In the decade of 80, the objective of the TPM started to act in the 6 main losses of the equipment, the imperfections, preparation and adjustments, time in emptiness and stops shortnesss, reduced speeds, defects in processes and retrabalhos and minor income enter the rank in march and the steady production and being called for the JIPM of TPM of second generation.
