Maintenance management is an important component of a well-functioning operation. It helps companies maintain their assets while controlling time and costs to ensure maximum efficiency of the manufacturing process, the utilities and related facilities. It is a tool that helps to secure a reliable and satisfactory quality of production, safety for employees and protection for the environment.

Maintenance is an important factor in quality assurance and in some cases determines the long-term success of a company. Poorly maintained assets and resources can cause instability and partially or completely halt the production. Malfunctioning machines or complete breakdowns can become a costly process for any company.

When breakdowns occur, the labour cost per unit rises as time passes until the machines again run as normal. In this event, there will be unexpected expenses to repair the issues, which includes extra costs for repair facilities, specialist repair crews, preventive maintenance inspections and spare parts. These are some examples of what a company can expect to deal with over time if a reliable maintenance management solution is not installed – even for companies with new machines in their production.

A successful and effective maintenance operation has to break away from the ‘fix it when it breaks’ mentality and seek to schedule planned maintenance with the ultimate goal of the maintenance department being to ‘stop’ things from breaking, increase asset availability and reliability and do so with the lowest possible use of resources.
