Existing maintenance strategies rarely account for TPM either in the planned maintenance field or in autonomous maintenance for operators.
TPM strategies can become narrow in focus, usually focussing on Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and do not encompass all the five aspects defined by the TPM institute (see below)
