Summary

It’s time once again to make much of a simple concept; that two groups with different names, languages, and cultures might put aside their old habits, pettiness, and grudges, recognize the overwhelming alignment of their most critical self-interests, and join their complementary strengths to achieve unprecedented peace, harmony, and productivity. That’s the concept behind total productive maintenance (TPM), where maintenance and production personnel cooperate to define, standardize, allocate and perform the tasks needed to maximize overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), which keeps equipment producing quality product at maximum efficiency and minimum lifecycle cost.

robotic. not well suited to audiobook format

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

could have been made better by being read out with a little more enthusiasm. because this book is technical in its' nature, it would probably help if the person reading it out had a background in TPM or a knowledge of the subject. this is true of most technical books of this nature.

What was most disappointing about Ade Asefeso, MCIPS MBA’s story?

a lot of calculations and some visual items such as the 8 pillars of TPM. doesnt translate very well to audiobook format. The narrator sounds fairly robotic at parts.

What three words best describe Christy Lynn’s performance?

robotic. monotonous. uninspired.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from TPM Simplified?

not really a relevant question as this book is non fiction and doesn't have "scenes" as such. Any chapters containing equations should be improved or omitted. having loads of random letters read out quickly doesn't help anyone. equations are more a visual media.

Barely good for introducing TPM concepts

This book was my first approach to TPM. Although it was helpful, its shortcomings made it less effective, and not engaging at all. Starting by, narration, it's too monotonous, almost machine like. The structure of the book doesn't follow a defined sequence or logic; at times it seems to skip from topic to topic randomly, and frequently seems to be too redundant and repetitive (perhaps this was intended to reinforce memorization of the concepts?). If you're looking for a brief introduction to TPM go ahead and listen to it, but don't expect too much.

Overall good content, but with average narration.

I struggled listening with the narrator's voice and/or storytelling characteristics. It is difficult to explain other than saying that the narrator's voice might have been a better fit for a storyteller of a novel or a fantasy story rather than a technical voice.
