TPC Operate Can Help Your Team Be Master Machine Operators

TPC Operate is a troubleshooting and on-the-job training platform that serves as a central hub for the schematics of your company’s machines and processes. The application brings the critical information machine operators and technicians need to easily access a user-friendly interface maintained on a secure web-based platform.

With TPC Operate, the schematics for machine processes are displayed interactively. Elements are overlaid on each component to provide users the information they need for on-the-job training and troubleshooting at their fingertips.

On-the-job training becomes streamlined and standardized, providing mentors and new staff trainers singular documentation of machines and processes. Companies who adopt TPC Operate benefit from housing necessary operating specifications in one place, setting the standard for best practices and reducing the reliance on “tribal knowledge.” Use TPC Operate to strengthen knowledge once workers leave the classroom, and for training across shifts, locations, departments, and skill levels – training is more consistent, technicians onboard faster, and new hires are qualified to work more efficiently.

Easily accessible, navigable, and color-coded schematics allow operators to troubleshoot problems immediately, and eliminates the need to follow pipes or wires to locate where a breakdown occurred. TPC Operate solves problems, and reduces downtime by providing access to a “shortlist” of components to troubleshoot and empowering technicians to take immediate action to fix it—it even identifies exact part numbers for quick replacement.

How does TPC Operate work?


TPC subject matter experts and production technicians come to your company’s facility to collect detailed information on the machine or process. That means every valve, gauge, solenoid, electrical relay, circuit breaker, and switch are accounted for, along with their manufacturer, part numbers, pictures, operational descriptions, spec sheets, and settings. Then, TPC creates a customized, interactive collection of schematics, with multiple levels of functionality designed to allow for quick access to needed information.

TPC delivers the TPC Operate module for your designated machines along with integration training for your technicians and operators to use the module to increase knowledge transfer, conduct efficient on-the-job training, and troubleshoot more effectively.
