First of all, I acknowledge that the question is kind of strange. TPM should be teached, learned and executed in the shop-floor and in the machine/equipment. But I'm presenting the concept to blue collar workers in training room enviroment and I would like to do somenthing beside PPT slides. Could anyone one point me some possible games or simulations about this?

Not strange at all. It's a very good question. :applause:

I take it you are referring to Total Productive Maintenance.

I did a Google search and found $699 kits for teaching TPM, and I also found courses that laid out their elements in enough detail to use as a guide, like at the Kaizen Institute. I am not affiliated with Kaizen Institute.

Most of us do our best learning when applying the theory in a practical way, so if I was you I would do a goodly amount of research and draft lessons in how these mechanics would use the knowledge in their typical work functions.

Of course this means you will need to know your subject much more than a presentation would allow you to get away with, but I feel sure your results would be superior. I also believe you stand a much better chance of them applying what they have learned on the job, which is probably the point of all this.

I would go further and schedule a follow up class or even some focus groups, so they can share their experiences and you can clear up any remaining misunderstandings.

Although it is rather tedious in its manual version, and can take up to 2 hours, "The Beer Game" developed by MIT is very enlightening, and does have applicablity to Lean. You should be able to Google "Beer Game" and get enough information to make your own game set.

Well. Facing with the same dilemna, of teaching TPM in a classroom, and to top it, it was in a corporate institute away from work place, I tried something which you may find useful. After explaining the basic steps, I gave them a bunch of red/yellow defect tags, and a duster. I just took them to our small Diesel Generator pland and the air conditioning pump house. Even without being told, the participants started marking the fuguais and started putting the tags. Then some of them went ahead and started cleaning the spots on various machines. (all were engineers so there was no fear of a wrong operation). It gave a good energy to the participants and the programme became vey lively for 4 days. Working by own hands and the satisfaction achieved by this, is the biggest TPM fruit anyway.
