Review: TPM Forum 2008

TPM expert Takao Izumi from Japan shed light on current trends
in total productive management at the tenth anniversary of the event.

The leading event for decision-makers in production and maintenance took place for the tenth time on
26 and 27 February and saw more than 120 participants gather in Stuttgart. As part of specialist forums for
entry-level participants and experts, numerous national and international keynote speeches – including by speakers
from France and Belgium – and factory visits highlighted the challenges and successes of the past ten years in the
field of ‘Total Productive Management’. Management Circle also welcomed a special guest from Japan to the event:
Takao Izumi, Chief TPM Consultant at JIPM Solutions Co. Ltd. The TPM expert presented an outlook of
future developments in TPM as part of his keynote speech ‘TPM Trends and Core Values’.

Under the motto ‘Totally efficient – smart – feasible’, the congress organiser Management Circle,
in cooperation with the KAIZEN Institute, awarded three companies with a prize for the ‘best TPM ideas 2008’.

First place went to the frozen fish products manufacturer Frozen Fish International from Bremerhaven.
This prize was awarded by the jury in recognition of the company’s optimisation of its cost-intensive
waste disposal process thanks to better rubbish separation, recycling and waste avoidance.
