Abstract: The current paper proposes a new approach for industrial effectiveness, understand and improve it based on TPM principles and lean maintenance actions. The methodology followed is based on four parts. The first part entailed the maintenance activities mapping. In the second part, the OEE indicator is used, criticised and boosted to cover other parameters. The third part principal wastes are studied and linked to both powerful lean tools and associated improvement actions. The final part is devoted to case study. The proposed approach presents two major contributions: designing a practical tool to understand the impact of improvement actions on industrial system's effectiveness and proposing a set of actions which adhere to their relative impact on the OEE rate. The research findings are put into a trial run in multinational automotive. The proposed approach could help small organisations to implement lean methodology faster than usual by using directly appropriate tools to identify and kill waste sources. Further research could improve the proposed tool and thus reach a proposed study with other industrial application.
