Globally, even in printing industry, customer is demanding for high and consistent quality at low cost and fast delivery. Sustaining a printer’s technical and operational systems require a verification program to be developed and followed so that performance excellence (good manufacturing performance) is maintained. In this research, considering a theoretical framework of social-Technical system, a conceptual model for Total Production Management will be built, in which TotalProductive Maintenance (TPM) is pooled with Total Quality Management (TQM) and System Dynamics (SD) for attaining a “Total productive environment”, which we are coining as “Total Production Management”. This is premeditatedto convey,together production and maintenance functions composed by a blend of good working practices, team-working and continuous improvement, and thus achieve the objective of good manufacturing performance. In the Pilot study, convergent and discriminant validity test of the variables was performed using Smart PLS software.
