"A/C unit has frozen over. Again... Please fix. Again..."
Nothing disrupts the work flow worse than those pesky emergency work orders that keep coming through, especially the ones that keep repeating over and over again. It bogs down your day, puts other tasks on the side burner and kinda makes you look like you're not doing your job.
Take control of your time—don't let equipment run you
Sure, that sounds easy in reality, but how do you stop the cycle of letting equipment "run to failure" while finding enough time to implement a preventive maintenance program; from buy-in to selecting the right software; and from balancing corrective work orders while setting up PM schedules? It's a daunting task and it definitely takes dedication but it can be done—check out this PM best practices presentation and get started.
Why preventive maintenance?
Preventive Maintenance was really the result of increased market competition that followed WWII; equipment became less reliable due to higher demand and having to run at higher capacity. While other maintenance concepts have followed preventive maintenance, it still today remains the single most important factor in maintenance excellence as it:
- Frees up time
- Catch problems quickly
- Streamline processes for a scalable operation
- Reduces emergency work
- Extends the life of equipment
It's your time—make time for PM today!
