When maintenance isn’t a priority and something breaks, the cost of downtime can be even more significant than maintaining the item in the first place. You can spend less on maintenance in general and avoid maintenance-related downtime by practicing preventive maintenance.
Manufacturing plants are made up of many different areas, from production lines and heavy equipment to production, warehousing and distribution buildings. All aspects of the production chain from start to finish must work effectively and efficiently from the start of the process to the end product rolling out the door.
Preventive maintenance in these areas is being proactive and simply working ahead of schedule to perform maintenance before a problem can develop. Get rid of that moss, mould or flaky paint before it becomes an audit issue and before it contaminates product. Recalls are a costly exercise not only in the logistics but “Brand” damage.
The cost of downtime in manufacturing is measured in dollars. Dollars, staff aren’t earning when lines are down, product not being produced, out of stocks on shelves and the loss of valuable retail space for your product … your “Brand”, these are some of the real costs of downtime due to poor maintenance.
Preventive maintenance results in increased up-time, minimal production delays, safe manufacturing and safe products.
