Industries need young engineers with proper Attitude, Skills, and Knowledge (ASK), ready to work from the first day without training. Technical education is the backbone for employment in industries. The demand and supply ratio is not matching due to lacunae in higher technical education. Industries are marching towards excellence with the implementation of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) measured by Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE). The paper focuses on how the TPM and its tools enhance education quality through the proposed model of Total Productive Education (TPE) for increasing the efficacy of the education system.
