Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) has been promoted for its simplicity and its benefits to the maintenance delivery system. This paper designs methods for exploring the contextual differences of plants to better understand what types of companies have adopted TPM programs. We propose a theoretical framework for understanding the use of TPM and how it depends on managerial factors such as Just-in-Time (JIT), Total Quality Management(TQM) and Employee envolvement(EI) as well as environmental and organizational factors such as country, industry and company characteristics. Technological factors which was not considered in the earlier model has been identified and accordingly the model has been redesigned to suit to the modern requirements through the introduction of Preventive Maintenance and Hard Maintenance Integration. We discuss environmental, organizational managerial & Technological issues that should be considered when developing or improving maintenance systems.
