The importance of maintenance has been emphasized especially in the manufacturing environment. The failure of equipments or machines to produce products on time as required can reflect the inefficiency in operations thus, failure to deliver the products to the customers. The objective of TPM is to create an active participation of all employees in maintenance and production functions, including the operators who operate the machines and equipments. This paper discusses part of a preliminary study finding focusing on two main TPM practices namely autonomous maintenance and planned maintenance in a Malaysian SME. The results suggest important aspects of autonomous maintenance and planned maintenance activities that contributed to the improvement in quality and cost.
