Autonomous Maintenance (Jishu Hozen) refers to TPM activities that involve operators in maintaining their own equipment, independent of the maintenance department. Activities in an AM program include: daily inspections, lubrication, parts replacement, simple repairs, abnormality detection and precision checks. The goals of the program are to prevent equipment deterioration, restore equipment to its ideal state, and establish basic conditions needed to keep equipment well maintained. AM is one of the most important building blocks in any TPM program.

This PowerPoint presentation is developed by our JIPM-certified TPM consultant. It is packed with diagrams, examples and practical tips and can also be used to train shopfloor staff participating in autonomous maintenance activities.
