Learning Goal: I’m working on a management project and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Part 1

Total Preventive Maintenance (TPM)

Total Preventive Maintenance (TPM) is often used in order to improve Reliability. Select a well-known company (one of which all your classmates would have heard) that produces a product (not a service). Based on your reading for this week, respond to the following:

  • What type(s) of equipment would your company use in producing their product?
  • What kinds of malfunctions or breakdowns might occur with the type(s) of equipment that this company uses?
  • How could a TPM program be useful in avoiding the kinds of malfunctions or breakdowns that might occur? In other words, what actions can be taken to prevent the malfunctions or breakdowns that might occur?

Justify your answers using examples and reasoning. Comment on the postings of at least two peers and state whether you agree or disagree with their views.


Part 2

You are considering opening a small doughnut shop in your hometown. Research the process required to make doughnuts. After learning all of the steps that are required in the production of doughnuts, respond to the following:

  • List and describe all of the steps required to produce doughnuts as well as the equipment required to complete each step.
  • Create a bill of materials to list those ingredients required to produce doughnuts.
  • Describe what would be the capacity of the doughnut production operation that you are envisioning. In other words, describe what would define the maximum number of doughnuts that you could produce per hour.
  • If your doughnut business is incredibly successful (to the point that you are now selling them frozen, via grocery stores nationwide, so that people can prepare them in their own homes), explain how you could effectively increase the capacity of your doughnut operation.What change in process strategy would be required to produce and sell doughnuts in this way?
