Now a day's manufacturing systems have become continuously complex with the introduction of new technologies and are more costly to operate and maintain. The manufacturing systems are often operated at less than their full capacity, resulting in low productivity and high operating costs. In today's global economy, the survival of companies are depends on their ability to rapidly innovate and improve. As a result, an increasing search is for methods and processes that drive improvements in

Total productive maintenance is a comprehensive strategy that supports the purpose of equipment improvement to maximize its efficiency and quality of the product it produces. T.P.M. is a world class enabling tool, which is process and result oriented. T.P.M. must be led by manufacturing industry as it encourages production and maintenance to work as equal partners. This research work deals with study of TPM and Manufacturing performance of a manufacturing industry. Methodology has been framed to obtain best possible results based on target objectives. After finishing of detailed literature survey, a manufacturing industry is selected for data collection and TPM analysis work. By visiting this industry both primary and secondary data's are collected. Values of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) are calculated standard methods. By scheduling method of data collection four TPM pillars are analysed by framing questions. Finally all required results are obtained and analysed properly for obtaining conclusions.
