? Improving maintenance effectiveness
TPM focus on maintenance activities which are carried out on the equipment are performed in a cost effective way.
? Early equipment management and maintenance prevention
This goal of TPM is to reduce maintenance activities required by the equipment. It involves the identification nature and preventive maintenance level which are required for the equipment, the creation standards for condition-based maintenance, and the respective responsibilities for both maintenance and operating staff.

The maintenance and operating staff need to have all the necessary skills to carry out TPM. TPM emphasizes appropriate and continuous training.
? Involving Operators in Routine Maintenance
This goal is to let operators find maintenance tasks related to the equipment they perform. These tasks are about 10-40% of routine maintenance tasks performed on the equipment. Formerly engaged in these activities, maintenance resources can be redeployed in more advanced maintenance activities such as reliability focused maintenance activities or predictive maintenance.
