In modern times where the competitiveness of enterprises is essential to remain and grow in a market where profit margins narrow increasingly seek to gain root end product customers, companies are forced to seek way to save as much as possible and produce with the facilities for production with high reliability, availability and quality products even more when the product is made is for a special care sector such as the food, a trend of productive management appeared in recent decades and appears to have come to stay as a method to maximize team effectiveness with the use of minimum resources is the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), and so this practice is trying to implement in Company Gualapack of Costa Rica, is trying to carry out at least the initial stages of the main pillars on which this methodology is founded. This practice spanned an audit of the company on the current status of the "5s", one of the main pillars for the TPM can be successful in a company, together with the relevant training to operational and technical staff to then relaunch program "5s", then an autonomous maintenance plan where the operator is entered as responsible for minor tasks but no less important in maintaining productive team was created. This plan required an analysis of the level of knowledge they had their equipment operators then give training on the principles of operation of the equipment together with the technical expert teams having doubts staff operate when rinsed the team. Subsequently, parallel to the plan of the existing autonomous maintenance preventive maintenance management is reorganized, which are assigned to inspections based on manufacturer recommendations made in the manuals of the equipment as well as life cycles observed and measured during the periods of operation of equipment to component failure that sought to determine. Finally, we try to reduce changeover times coil sealing machine bags which initially had an average of three hours; for this first time was taking several changes coil to determine the average and carefully observe the process in which it is made to extract areas for improvement that will reduce the number of steps and time to perform the same.
