Gemba Academy Announces the Addition of “Planned Maintenance” to Series of Online, On-demand, Video-based courses on Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)

Gemba Academy, a provider of continuous improvement, Lean, and Six Sigma training and certification is pleased to introduce an online, on-demand, video-based course on Planned Maintenance. This course is part of a series on Total Productive Maintenance and describes how Planned Main­te­nance helps orga­ni­za­tions shift from reac­tive or break­down main­te­nance to proac­tive prac­tices such as peri­od­ic main­te­nance and pre­dic­tive main­te­nance.

"I'm so pleased with how our Total Productive Maintenance series of courses continues to progress.” explains Ron Pereira, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Gemba Academy, “Our latest course focuses on the Planned Maintenance pillar of TPM. Planned Maintenance is a set of activities to build and establish a system for periodic and predictive maintenance. Typical reactive maintenance activities include troubleshooting equipment quality or speed issues, repair of breakdowns, making unexpected parts replacements, and responding to emergencies. These activities are typically stressful and expensive. This is why deliberate and intentional planning of all maintenance activities is crucial."

Specifically, this online lean training course will teach the key 12 activ­i­ties for estab­lish­ing Planned Main­te­nance that are rolled out in 6 phases. Learn the goals of Planned Main­te­nance, its main capa­bil­i­ties, and the steps for imple­ment­ing it with­in an organization.
