Abstract:

According to the literature, quality management consists of a set of components: critical factors, tools, techniques and practices. To facilitate the implementation of Total quality management (TQM) and Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), practitioners and researchers have suggested large number of critical success factors. However, despite a broad consensus about what needs to be done, companies still struggle to implement these initiatives. Over the years, both academicians and professionals are emphasizing on the point of quality improvement of goods and services. Two of the eminent quality management philosophies are TQM and TPM. Quality management, by means of TQM, is considered to promote organizational performance characterized by competitiveness and long-term profitability. The benefits of quality management cannot be achieved without the sustained performance of equipment affecting product quality, hence TPM has become important. TQM and TPM approaches are generated in developed countries. It is found that TQM and TPM have similar background, some common factors, which have positive impact on the organizational performance. This paper includes a comparative study of literature focusing on factors of TQM and TPM implementation which have positive impact on the organizational performance. The study found some factors are common categories of activities when implementing TQM and TPM as combined strategy. The purpose of this paper is to identify the Critical Success Factors of TQM and TPM, in order to make them known to managers and thus facilitate successful quality management implementation.
