The purpose of this research was developing preventive maintenance plan for Powder Coating machine to increase the mean time between failures or MTBF of the Brake Lining Factory. From the initial study, it found that the values of mean time between failures tended to decrease. In the beginning of the year 2019 from January – June the mean time between failures was 146 hours per month. Thus, applied Total Productive Maintenance or TPM together with 4 pillars as follows 1.Specific Improvement 2.Autonomous Maintenance 3.Planned Maintenance and 4.Education/Training. That could make the machine more efficient. The results showed in values of the mean time between failures. The trend was increasing in July - November, before improvement the average to 146 hours per month. After improvement, the average was 165 hours per month or an increase of 13%
