Abstract: During the recent years, a few competitive strategies such as lean manufacturing and Six Sigma are integrated by the researchers and practitioners to reap the synergy. In this direction of progress, one conspicuous absence is an integrated model of total productive maintenance (TPM) and ISO 9001 certification. In this context, this paper reports a literature review which was carried out to establish the relationship between these two strategies. To explore the feasibility of this integration, this paper reports a literature review. During this literature review, the origin, tools, characteristics and benefits of TPM and ISO 9001 certification were studied. At the end of this review, the connectivity between these two competitive strategies is explained. After describing this literature review, this paper prescribes a roadmap for integrating TPM with ISO 9001:2008 standard.
Keywords: TPM; total productive maintenance; ISO 9000; integration; literature review; quality standards; QMS; quality management systems; quality certification; ISO 9001.
