  1. Adapt the AM audit checklists to your industry and machine/equipment for quick and easy implementation.
  2. Kick-start your TPM implementation with the AM audit checklists to improve equipment reliability.
  3. Use the AM audit checklist and findings to improve the effectiveness of your AM program.


The Autonomous Maintenance (AM) audit system assesses the progress made by production teams toward achieving the company's TPM goals. AM audits determine whether or not the teams are ready to move up to the next level of maturity with respect to the seven steps of the AM pillar. AM audits also expose weaknesses in the operators' knowledge, skills and equipment maintenance capability. The AM audit checklists therefore are an essential tool in the audit process.

The Autonomous Maintenance audit step-by-step checklists are based on the TPM Excellence Framework. The AM audit checklists are especially useful for companies who want to kick-start the AM implementation process and are not quite sure how to define the specific audit areas and evaluation points.

Developed by our JIPM-certified TPM consultant, the AM audit checklists are in Microsoft Office Excel format and can be easily tailored to suit your industry and machine or equipment type.

1. Autonomous Maintenance Audit Guide (PowerPoint format)
