Total Productive Maintenance Practices in Manufacture of Electronic Components & Boards Industry in Malaysia
Keywords:Autonomous Maintenance, Focused Maintenance, Overall Equipment Effectiveness, Planned Maintenance, Total Productive Maintenance,
AbstractThe Electrical and Electronics (E&E) industry continues to be a key driver of Malaysia's Industrial development and contributes significantly to GDP growth, export earnings, investment, and employment. Malaysia has become a major global manufacturing hub for the E&E industry and four decades and continues to be a preferred E&E investment destination. In order to sustain and stay competitive, the Malaysian semiconductor companies are urged to implement world class maintenance techniques that will improve equipment utilization and thus reducing capital expenditure. Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is one of the effective maintenance strategies for enhancing the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) to achieve a significant competitive advantage. The aim of the study is to determine the effectiveness of TPM to improve OEE in the E&E industry. This study used the real time data for two types of die attach equipment models, namely CANON and ESEC. The data was collected from an E&E company in Malaysia. The real time data was recorded by software known as Global Operator User Interface (GOUI) system. GOUI system captures the real time data directly from the machine. The result shows that the implementation of TPM gives a significant difference in OEE for both different equipment models. In addition, this study also shows that the three TPM practices namely planned maintenance, autonomous maintenance, and focused maintenance are able to explain 91.2% of the total variation of OEE in the E&E industry.
