Tokyo Electron(TEL) has been implementing company-wide Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) for over 10 years. The purpose of TPM is to eliminate inefficiencies, waste, and loss, and thereby improve productivity. At the same time, it aims to change employees thinking and behavior. The TPM approach plays a role in employee development and has been successfully integrated into our production lines. Promoted in cooperation with design and administration divisions, the synergistic effects improve both quality and productivity. TPM is also being used to improve business process quality between indirect divisions. TPM activities that have produced outstanding results are shared company-wide at the annual TPM presentation, with a Grand Prize and other awards to help motivate employees in their activities. From fiscal year 2016, participants included not only teams from Japanese manufacturing sites, but from our overseas site Tokyo Electron (Kunshan) Limited (established in 2012) as well.
