GARCIA ALCARAZ, Jorge Luis; ROMERO GONZALEZ, Jaime  and  NORIEGA MORALES, Salvador Anacleto. Administrative factors related to the success of total productive maintenance. Contad. Adm [online]. 2012, vol.57, n.4, pp.173-196. ISSN 0186-1042.

Total Productive Maintenance is a tool widely used in the production areas. It is aimed at increasing the availability of machinery and production equipment, as well as businesses economic benefits. However, the administrative factors that ensure its successful implementation are not known. This article presents the results of a survey with twenty activities and three benefits. This survey was applied to 203 managers and maintenance supervisors from companies located in Ciudad Juarez, and was to be answered on a Likert scale. The survey was validated by the use of Cronbach's alpha index and an exploratory principal components method factorial analysis was applied. We found that only 3 factors can explain 66.06% of the total variance, while the relationship between the factors, activities and benefits was obtained with the use of structural equation models.

Keywords : TPM; critical success factors; factor analysis; structural equation models.
