I had the honor of working with the Society for Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and the Modern Drop Forge Company (MF) to develop a new Total Productive Maintenance Blitz DVD in conjunction with the Association of Manufacturing Excellence (AME). As part of SME’s award winning Manufacturing Insights video series, this Total Productive Maintenance Blitz program follows a cross-functional team during a four-day kaizen event.

Watch as team members immerse themselves in a TPM kaizen event within a manufacturing cell. This program highlights how the team established which equipment to focus on, identified potential problems, determined the root causes for underperforming equipment, and then brainstormed improvement ideas. The team then quickly implements over 50 ideas, which resulted in the company saving over $50,000 per year by reducing production downtime by 50%, and scrap by 10%.

I’ll write more about my experience creating the video in another post. Stay tuned. – Tony
