Total Productive Maintenance is a maintenance program which involves a newly defined concept for maintaining plants and equipment Overall Equipment Effectiveness is used as the measure of success of Total Productive Maintenance implementation. The Overall Equipment Effectiveness is product of equipment availability, performance efficiency of process and quality performance of manufacturing operations. Kobetsu Kaizen approach is an important pillar of Total Productive Maintenance which had a major task of unifying the kaizen effort across the division. KK Pillar looks into all the losses, analyses the losses using various QC tools and comes up with suggestions that need to be implemented to reduce recurring losses. This research is into the implementation of the KK Pillar activities in a manufacturing company that is in project business and does not have repetitive products. The main aim of this dissertation work is to reduce the losses of the machine. In this research work a case study of machine had been undertaken for the analysis for certain duration.
