Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), small group and concurrent engineering activities are interlinks with the different department. The main aim is to train the plant people in the ideas and philosophy of machine maintenance and give them an opportunity to increase their skills and self-confidence. In the present work, an attempt made to find the areas of improvement in equipment to enhance its overall performance to enhance the productivity. Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is employed to check the overall operation of the equipment and suitable data for eight months in the analysis. To achieve setup change time reduction and zero setup rejection through Kaizen. Cost saving by reducing tooling cost per part. Continuous improvement of operation with total employee participation. The analysis of data has shown an OEE of 74 % with 90 % sixteen major losses of overall output. In the above discussion five most common causes keyed out, and it is recommended to carry out TPM to enhance the OEE of the equipment.
