Abstract: Frequent machine breakdowns, low plant availability, increased rejection are a great threat to increase operating cost and lower productivity. The objective of the work is to enhance the overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) in battery industry through the implementation of total productive maintenance (TPM). The company has to suffer due to lower availability of machines as a result of breakdowns. Comparison of OEE between before and after implementation of TPM can provide the much needed force to improve the maintenance policy
