What is TPM?

If you are running a manufacturing plant and are looking to improve the performance and efficiency of your plant TPM (which is an abbreviation for Total Productive Maintenance) is probably something you want to know more about. In this article we will tell you what is is and how your company can benefit from implementing it.

TPM is a preventive maintenance approach to how you handle your equipment. The goal of this approach is to prevent defects, breakdowns and stops. Also this a way to prevent employee accidents which is ofcourse the most important thing of all. This principle is based on 8 pillars which are the following:

  1. Development
  2. Autonomy of maintenance
  3. Improvement of new equipment
  4. Education
  5. Process worth management
  6. Administrative work
  7. Quality maintenance
  8. Healthy workspace

As you probably can imagine these 8 pillars need a lot of work to achieve a solid TPM approach.

To help you effectively measure your TPM efforts OEE is generally used. OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) is a metric tot track whether or not your TPM approach leads to perfect production.

OEE is often automated by usage of very helpfull platforms, like the one from https://www.4industry.io/. By using these kind of platforms it is way more easy to get insight which you wouldn’t get if you would track OEE manually. 

Hopefully we were able to give you some useful insights on how you can use a TPM approach to your advantage!

product design

How product design creates a preference for your brand among customers

Product design builds a brand and vice versa. The product should, therefore, suit the existing collection. Otherwise, it might not be recognized as your brand. Another product-design concern is that it should be visually attractive and convenient to use. 

One of the goals of business strategy is aligning all parts and activities of the organization. Often, there is a common organizational goal. Therefore, harmony should also exist between product design and the brand that it belongs to. This is why product design companies are involved in strategy creation and/or adherence.

Additionally, the interaction effect of brand and product design has a customer-related cause. If your product design corresponds with the brand identity, it is likely that customers recognize your product as belonging to the brand, without seeing the logo or brand name. Examples of brand-identity aspects are color scheme, shapes and fonts. You can probably recognize a Tesla car by its shape, without seeing the logo. 

For repeated-purchase, low-cost products, such as toothpaste, it is probably more important than for luxury, infrequent purchases, such as cars. Customers, appreciate finding the toothpaste in the supermarket without having to stare at the shelve for five minutes. Changing the product or packaging significantly, might lead to confusion for customers who preferred your brand and them buying a different brand.

The interaction effect does not only apply when a product is upgraded, but also when the product line is extended. Let’s go back to the toothpaste example. Loyal customers might also consider complementary products from the line, if they are satisfied with your products. If mouthwash is added to the dental care line, satisfied customers are more likely to consider the brand if they recognize it as your brand. 

In conclusion, it is recommended that product design and development are in line with the existing brand identity. As a result, satisfied customers are more likely to keep buying your products than in the case that a product does not demonstrate the brand identity properly.
