SIVARAM, N.M.; DEVADASAN, S.R. y MURUGESH, R.. Conceptualisation for implementing total productive maintenance through the ISO 9001:2008 standard-based quality management system. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.2, pp.33-46. ISSN 2224-7890.
This paper conceptualises the integration of total productive maintenance (TPM) and ISO 9001 certification by contributing a model called TPM 9001:2008. Through this conceptualisation, the eight TPM pillars are amended to the five major clauses of the ISO 9001:2008 standard. To illustrate this conceptualisation, the contents of a sub-clause of the TPM 9001:2008 model are presented, and the rationale behind its designation is appraised.
